We can help with:

  • HUD contracts
  • Property acquisitions
  • Funding arrangements
  • Subdivisions
  • Construction contracts
  • Leasing
  • Rent to buy arrangements
  • Trust advice

Providing development expertise to the CHP sector

AlexanderDorrington is committed to sharing it’s legal skills in property investment and development with the CHP sector. This advice needs to be tailored to meet the needs of the CHP’s board and be given against a background of the terms of framework, eg. the HUD contracting.

Charitable trusts and not-for-profits

We regularly assist clients navigating the charitable and not-for-profit sector. We can help with establishing and administering charitable trusts. 

Social housing providers registered as charities have ongoing record-keeping and reporting obligations and must comply with governance standards. AlexanderDorrington can work with you to maintain your charitable trust’s legal obligations while you keep on with your good work providing homes for Auckland.
