About us

For the past 20 years David Barker has provided consultancy & registration services to the legal & surveying professions on all areas of land law from simple conveyancing matters to the most complex.

David’s previous position as Assistant Land Registrar at Land Information New Zealand provided him with an understanding of the processes and intricacies of the registration process. It also gave him invaluable experience in interpreting the land title register and identifying important matters that reduce risk for the practitioner and which ultimately benefit your client.

We are experts in Landonline searching and registration including the preparation of e-dealings, subdivisions and easement matters and have assisted practitioners in negotiating the maze of the statutory and regulatory requirements of Land Information New Zealand. Our ability to certify and sign edealings adds another dimension to the service we can provide to our clients.

We regularly present seminars to the legal profession and surveyors on land law matters and the practical issues faced by both of these professions. David was recently asked to comment on the Law Commissions report on the new Land Transfer Act and has been called to appear as an expert witness in mediation/arbitration disputes and in cases involving fraud.
