We help individuals, groups and corporates with joint venture arrangements that take the stress out of property development.

If you would like to talk about how a joint venture can make your property development plans a reality, please call Mark Weipers on +64 9 638 8370 or email him.

Here are just some of the ways a joint venture with Location Group can work for you:

  • You want to change the use of your property and increase its value;
  • You want to release capital from your property;
  • You want to downsize existing operations and free up more space for other uses;
  • You want to sell off-market because of confidentiality issues relating to staff, neighbours etc;
  • You have an existing lease liability that is obsolete;
  • You want to retain control of an asset and need additional finance;
  • You own a family property that has development potential but don’t have the funds – or simply don’t know where to begin.
