Maurice has had many working chapters throughout his life that have culminated in a fountain of experience in the areas of subdivision and conveyancing.

He had a long career in the Land Information NZ offices throughout New Zealand including 12 years as Principal Assistant Land Registrar/Quality Assurance Officer (Titles) in the Nelson LINZ office.

He has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to technical land title issues and can easily walk you through the process of buying and selling your property.

Maurice has highly specialised skills in dealing with conveyancing documentation for:

* Subdivisions;

* Title boundary changes in respect of the movement of water boundaries (accretion/erosion/dry river beds);

* Claims to land by occupation and by application for land to be bought under the Land Transfer Act.

Maurice is another born and bred Nelsonian and enjoys the benefits of our rural countryside. He has lived in the Moutere, Mahana and Mapua districts and has a good general knowledge of much of the rural activities in those areas including Motueka and Golden Bay.  Maurice and his wife Maureen have raised their two children in Stoke and also tend a small rural holding in Lower Moutere where they raise sheep and a few beef cattle.
