Here is the latest update from the New Zealand Law Society regarding property settlements:

"PROPOERTY SETTLEMENT UPDATES

We are all working in rapidly changing and challenging times. In partnership with other professional legal organisations, the New Zealand Law Society | Te Kāhui Ture o Aotearoa is providing regularly updated guidance, support and advocacy for our members.

The rapidly changing pandemic situation can be stressful – and the legal profession has unique needs and challenges at this time. We know that many in the profession have questions about pending property settlements under Level 4.

COVID-19 Level 4 means the only permitted activity is that of essential businesses which are primarily related to the necessities of sustaining life. This will continue to require changes and adjustments to the way we work and what we can achieve.

Given the State of Emergency declaration and further announcements from the government, it is now clear that any property settlements that require physical movement of people is now for all practical purposes ‘illegal’.

Lawyers need to counsel clients accordingly. Admittedly that will be difficult for some to understand and accept, but it is the reality in which we find ourselves.

Please be patient with fellow practitioners and clients alike and stay safe.

Property Law Section Chair
