Status of land – successful appeal against condition on sale and refusal to grant change of status – Property Ventures Ltd

Property Ventures Limited v Parata - Ngarara West B3B

Māori Appellate Court (2007) 16 Aotea Appellate MB 1 (16 WGAP 1)

20 August 2007

Successful appeal overturning the imposition of a condition upon the sale of Māori freehold land and the refusal to grant an order changing the status to General land. Registration of the transfer as a condition of sale only protects the purchaser and cannot have been contemplated by Te Ture Whenua Māori Act 1993. The change of status would, in the circumstances, lead to more effective management of the land.
