Ive been looking at 2 properties, similar size, similarly productive in seed fruit. However one is categorised as Horticultural and the other Lifestyle. Can anyone explain to me how this determine this? Can it be changed?
The reason I ask because this has a significant impact on mortgage lending. Horticultural comes under Rural and therefore the BNZ is not lending at all on Rural or Horticultural properties, lifestyle properties can fall under residential, better rates and terms.
it would be covered under the unitary plan and zoning regs. Any real estate agent would be able to advise. Hope you have got a GOOD business plan! Also LSB's usually end up with a house on them which increases the collateral that the bank looks for. A bank will usually only lend money if they can sell you up and get 75% back.
