The Law Commission invites you to come to one of the public consultation meetings on the review of the Property (Relationships) Act 1976.

When should the law treat two people as a couple? What property should they share if they break up and what property should only belong to one of them? The Law Commission is reviewing the 40-year-old Property (Relationships) Act, which sets the rules for how to divide a couple’s property at the end of a relationship. In the last forty years, New Zealand has changed a lot. This includes the way relationships and families are formed, how they function and what happens when relationships end.
