New Zealand Property Practice



Every day, our expert team offer  property advice and tailored  solutions in a wide range of  specialist property consultancy  services. We can assist you  with a stand-alone service or a  tailored package to meet your  specific requirements. With legal and architectural  expertise, and property  management and acquisition  experience, we cover a wide variety of professional  property services, including  commercial property and asset  management. Our extensive  property consultancy service  includes property studies,  property reporting, strategic  planning, and real estate  acquisitions. We assist for  newcomer and established  commercial property owners  and their tenants, as well as  large corporations with complex  infrastructure requirements.

Asset Management services from New Zealand Property Practice  focus on managing property assets. Our services encompass the financial management of an investment property, including  management of legal issues. Asset management services can extend to managing both acquisition and property strategy and  the long-term planning of a property in order to maximise long-  range profitability.

Tenant Selection 

We know that the quality of the tenants directly affects the  value of any commercial property. We work with an appointed  Leasing Agent to select high performing and commercially  viable tenants for our clients. We then establish and maintain  high-quality tenant relationships that enable us to provide  continuity for the property’s income long term.


Lease Renewal & Rent Review


New Zealand Property Practice adopts a proactive approach  to commercial property. We implement forward planning for  lease review, renewal and expiration. We
discuss important  upcoming lease dates with tenants, and negotiate terms up to 
six months in advance, depending on our clients’ requirements. Our aim is to make sure our clients’ best interests are met. We  do this through our experience negotiating with tenants, and  our expert understanding of the legalities governing legislation  like Property Law Act 2007, the Contract and Commercial Law Act 2017 and the Contraction Contracts Act 2002. Our  aim is 100% occupancy. We drive for this using our forward  planning policies and processes. These ensure we can focus  on increasing returns and eliminating and reducing negative  outcomes.


Lease Advisory


The accurate management and forecasting of lease milestones  is essential to any commercial property landlord. Done  efficiently, lease administration can become
one of the  landlord’s greatest assets. It can provide clarity for future cash flow needs, investment feasibility and profitability.


Rent & Arrears Collection


Due to our knowledge and understanding of managing  commercial leases, and our expert legal knowledge of governing legislation such as the Property Law Act 2007, we  have an unblemished track record of collecting tenant rent and  arrears. 



NZPP design and implement small  and large-scale acquisition projects. Previous  briefs our team has dealt with include network campaigns for telecommunication  infrastructure. We manage the process and stakeholders for projects ranging from  essential infrastructure to investment and  development. 

An acquisition and disposal project, designed from concept, is a great tool for  generating diverse commercial benefits. In  our research and design of site acquisition  campaigns, we include detailed risk criteria  and risk mitigation policies. 

Regardless of the size, structure or nature of your property or property business, we can help you to achieve your goals. In addition to delivering quality, accurate financial statements and tax accounting advice, we also offer a range of specialist services to improve your profitability and performance, meet auditing requirements, increase risk  management, capitalise on opportunities, develop exit strategies and generally  add  financial security and value to your property or property business. 

Our proposed focus for any client is to document a  comprehensive Better Business Case Model (BBC), with a  long term investment focus on reducing operational expenses.  Reducing operating expenses can often result in reduced  resistance from tenants when it comes time to increase the  lease rental. This provides owners with reduced costs and  liability, while at the same time maintaining the integrity and  value of the asset, buildings and facilities.

New Zealand Property Practice develops a comprehensive  Better Business Case (BBC) models. Implementing the BBC  model streamlines capital projects and allows us to provide  our clients with a clear vision of the future for their assets. It  helps set higher and more strategic goals for the property.

Correct planning and goal setting for portfolios is an important aspect that  needs to be taken into consideration when reviewing the day-to-day operation  of each individual asset within a portfolio. With a clear and accurate long-term  portfolio plan in place, each action, each plan and each decision for each asset  can be combined and aligned to ensure that the long-term goal for the owner  or operator of the portfolio can be easily realised.

Pinpointing underlying inaccuracies  is necessary to achieving holistic and lasting commercial property management.
