Not-For-Profits - changing needs - 1.5 CPD hours

  • Publication date: February 2016
  • Author: Mark von Dadelszen

The not-for-profit sector is alive and well in New Zealand. We have over 23,000 incorporated societies (and a similar number of trusts registered under the Charitable Trusts Act 1957), but their needs and the law applying to them are changing.

The exposure draft of the Incorporated Societies Bill has been released recently for consultation, and new health and safety and vulnerable children legislation applies.

This module will introduce what is proposed in a new Incorporated Societies Act, discuss the implications of new health and safety and vulnerable children legislation, and will include the key factors that you need to take into account when providing advice in this area of legal practice. In particular, Mark will cover:

  • The pending changes to the substantive law on incorporated societies
  • The new health and safety and vulnerable children legislation
  • The need for improved not-for-profit governance
  • The problems in defining a charity.

Commercial Leasing Update - 1.5 CPD hours

  • Publication date: October 2015
  • Authors: Paul Calder, Karen Overend

There is a high use of standard forms in a commercial leasing context, but a standard form does not necessarily deal adequately with all the complexities of a particular transaction. There can be misunderstandings between landlords and tenants (and, occasionally, their advisers) as to the interpretation of certain standard provisions.
This webinar will give you an overview of the benefits and risks of using standard form leases and highlight when this is appropriate, when it is not, and the associated implications.

Key features of commonly used standard forms and tips for review will be covered. The aim is to provide participants with a framework of what they should be thinking about when considering a commercial lease and the circumstances in which a more bespoke form of lease should be considered.

Topics to be covered will include:

  • Key features of standard form leases, including:
    – Maintenance and outgoings provisions in leases – who undertakes maintenance and who pays
    – Shopping centre leases and sinking funds
    – Premises condition reports.
  • Matters to consider when leasing off-plan, for both landlords and tenants.
  • The impact of earthquake strengthening requirements on lessor and lessee relationships.
  • Case law update and recent trends and developments in commercial leasing.
