Why use us

Our cross lease conversion service removes the burden of living in a cross lease situation, allowing you to own your own property outright. This can remove the need of dealing with the neighbours unnecessarily and increase the value of your property.

Our flats plan service helps keep your title up-to-date, making the legally required changes to your title after any renovation work is completed on your property. If your flats plan is not updated, your title is defective until this is properly completed.

Our legal and boundary specialist cross lease advice can work through any issue and provide expert surveying and legal advice on how to best deal with any cross lease issue.

Why convert your crosslease title to freehold?

Gain your own title and full ownership of your property.

Avoid a defective title which can cause legal issues which affect and delay the sale of the property

Avoid the burden of dealing with neighbours permissions, or flats plans each time you want to make a change.

Add value by freeholding with us. A freehold title is often considered more desirable/adds value

Add significant value by taking advantage of the Auckland Unitary Plan to convert your cross lease into a freehold title, then subdivide the new freehold title, to create additional dwellings and allotments.

Projects and testimonials

Cross Lease Projects
Murdoch Road

“I recently engaged Jake McKenzie & Sebastian Tolich to split the titles between a property I purchased earlier in the year with a neighbouring property. Prior to purchasing, I sought advice from them for feasibility as this information hinged my final decision. Once I had made the purchase, I appointed them to take care of the cross-lease conversion. The process was well-planned, smooth, and informative, and gave me complete confidence that I could leave them to deliver on the project efficiently and effectively. I couldn’t recommend Jake and Sebastian enough; they are both highly diligent and experts in their respective fields”.
