Signed a contract with a house buying company: what are your options?

02-May-2017

There has been recent news articles about Auckland house buyers or house buying companies that visit people at home, who can be elderly and sick, and very quickly agreements for the sale and purchase of their property are signed for a price that can be below the property's market value. These agreements may be completed without people receiving advice from professionals such as their lawyer.

We have experience acting in such situations. There may be issues with misrepresentation of the sale and purchase agreement, with whether you have capacity to contract, and with other matters.

If you feel you may have been put in a situation, we are here to help. Please consider your legal options before proceeding with and potentially settling the sale of your property or home in such situations.
