We can assist clients with large and small scale leasing matters, both Residential and Commercial. If you are interested in investing in a commercial property we can provide you with valuable advice on how to best structure your investment vehicle to maximise your profit and minimise your risk.
We have extensive experience in a wide range of commercial matters including company start ups, share holders agreements, buying and selling businesses or shares, franchising or developing a terms of trade for your business.
If you are thinking of guaranteeing a loan, you must get the best advice possible. We can assist you to assess the risks and if necessary, help you and your business or family look for workable alternatives often where a guarantee is not recommended.
This is so important yet is is also often an overlooked area in our busy lives. The Best Team can work with you to discuss and develop a plan to preserve your Assets for the future. We are also able to refer you to professionals who can help with financial planning and tax advice.
We spend all our lives accumulating assets and trying to protect them, yet it never ceases to amaze us how many people neglect to prepare a Will. We recommend you allow experienced professionals to lead you through the issues and create for you a Will that properly reflects your wishes. The Best Team will have a thorough interview with you, discussing options and possibilities. We don’t just prepare standard Wills, we create tailor-made Wills which work for our clients’ personal circumstances.
ENDURING POWERS OF ATTORNEY
Having an Enduring Power of Attorney in place is one way for you to have peace of mind that if something happens and you lose mental capacity the people you trust the most can make those important decisions for you. These decisions can range from property and finance matters to personal care and welfare. We can help you through the process so you can avoid some common and costly pitfalls, making sure you’re sorted – just in case.
REST HOMES AND RETIREMENT VILLAGES
If you are thinking of moving into a Retirement Village, talk to us about the various options available. Trish knows the Rest Homes in Kapiti and is happy to assist clients and their families look at the options. We have had extensive experience dealing with the new Ryman’s, Charles Fleming Retirement Village so talk to us before you sign any agreements.
Deal with a team that treats Family Trusts seriously. The Best Team can tailor-make you a Family Trust to protect your family's assets. We will also assist with transfers of property to Trusts, financing and provide you with information to allow you decide whether you should set up a gifting programme to transfer your assets to the Trust over time or immediately.
Whether you have set up a Family Trust or want to make personal gifts to your family, we can advise on different ways to do this.
