is a residential conveyancing business which has been formed by Gawith Burridge, Barristers, Solicitors & Notary Public of Masterton to provide quality fixed fee residential conveyancing in the changing property services environment.

First Property Legal specialises in residential property transactions. Buying, selling and refinancing residential, investment and lifestyle properties. We have developed systems and precedents that enable us to complete property transactions quickly and efficiently. We will offer clients a great service at a competitive price with no surprises.

First Property Legal is a division of Gawith Burridge and all services are supported by the existing Gawith Burridge practice. Gawith Burridge is Wairarapa’s largest law firm operating continuously since 1875. The owners of both Gawith Burridge and First Property Legal are Adam Parker, Bruce Wagg, and Debbie van Zyl . For South Wairarapa clients we are able to use the Gawith Burridge branch offices to arrange for client documentation to be signed by appointment in Martinborough.

We look forward to working with clients and property professionals in this exciting time of change. We invite you to phone our office if you have any queries about our service.
