When it comes to buying your first home, there are several key aspects where our expertise can benefit you:
Kāinga Ora has various options and information that can assist you in taking the first step toward owning a home.
- KiwiSaver First-Home Withdrawal: We understand the importance of utilising your KiwiSaver funds towards your first home. Our lawyers can guide you through the process of accessing your KiwiSaver First-Home Withdrawal, ensuring compliance with the eligibility criteria and assisting with the necessary documentation.
- First Home Grant: The First Home Grant is designed to support eligible individuals or couples in achieving home ownership. Our team can provide detailed information about the grant, assist with the application process, and ensure you meet the requirements to maximise the grant amount.
- First Home Partner: If your deposit and home loan aren’t enough to buy a home, First Home Partner could help to bridge the gap. You apply for First Home Partner through Kāinga Ora. First Home Partner is a shared ownership scheme to help aspiring first home buyers whose deposit and home loan aren’t quite enough to buy a home that meets their needs, purchase a home together with Kāinga Ora.
- First Home Loan: Kāinga Ora (First Home Loan) is a government-backed loan that allows first home buyers to purchase a home with a smaller deposit (5% deposit) which means getting into your first home is that much easier. First Home Loans are issued by selected banks and other lenders, and underwritten by Kāinga Ora.
If you and your partner are buying a house together, we can assist you with the legal side of things to make sure both of you are protected and your rights are taken care of. If needed, we can also help you create agreements that explain how you’ll share the property.
For first-time homebuyers, we provide a range of legal services, such as checking everything is in order, reviewing agreements, and making sure you follow all the rules. We’ll walk you through each step and come up with solutions that match what you need.
At Convey Law, we promise to be clear and honest with you. We’ll keep you in the loop during the entire process so you can feel confident and safe while you start your journey to becoming a homeowner.
