Overseas Buyer Information

More Information

This leaflet gives general guidance for people who want to buy a home to live in. There are special rules for overseas people who want to invest in New Zealand property, but not live in it, including buying rental property or land that is rural or next to a lake, river, reserve or the sea.

These rules are complex, and you will need the help of a New Zealand property lawyer.

Visit the Overseas Investment O‑ce at www.linz.govt.nz/oio to learn more.
