Legal fees for buying a home


Unity members save on legal fees for buying a home

Here at Unity, your local credit union, we understand that it’s not just buying the house that costs money, it’s all the little ‘add-ons’ that cost also. So to assist you with one of the costs, Unity has used its buying power to negotiate an arrangement with trusted legal team, Gifford Devine.

Gifford Devine are based in Hastings, but can take care of the legal requirements of your home purchase no matter where you live in New Zealand. In addition to this, we have negotiated a special rate of only $1,350 including GST for your home purchase legal fees (conveyancing fees are often in excess of $1,800).* This is a huge saving that reflects your ownership in your credit union – Unity. 

How do you benefit from this great saving? Simply contact your Unity lender when you are considering your sale and purchase agreement and they will put you in contact with one of the legal advisors at Gifford Devine.

For more information on Gifford Devine, visit or contact one of our team today.

Unity has negotiated this special just for our members, it’s our way of giving back. Find out what other member benefits are available to you.
