Alienation – right of first refusal must not be unjustifiably restricted – Taueki

Taueki - Horowhenua XIB 41 North A3A and 3B1

Māori Appellate Court (2008) 16 Aotea Appellate MB 30 (16 WGAP 30)

17 March 2008

Unsuccessful appeal by Vivienne Taueki against orders of the Māori Land Court confirming the sale of Māori freehold land. Confirmation orders nevertheless revoked due to a lack of jurisdiction by the lower Court to make such orders given procedural inadequacies of the sale process by the vendors. Preferred class of alienees must be given a practical and reasonable amount of time to exercise their right of first refusal.
