Approved guides

We have developed two important guides to ensure buyers and sellers of residential property are provided with essential and accurate information about the buying and selling process.

​The guides are:

You must give the Residential Property Agency Agreement Approved Guide to a seller

Before they sign an agency agreement for the sale of residential property: and you must obtain their signed acknowledgement that they have received it.
 

You must provide a copy of the New Zealand Residential Property Sale and Purchase Agreement Guide to both the buyer and the seller

Before they sign a sale and purchase agreement for a residential property: and you must obtain their signed acknowledgement that they have received it.
