Rp Emery I cannot speak highly enough of this company. Saves people literally thousands of $$ Not only with the templates and forms but guidance as well. Have used for a Binding Financial Agreement , they do wills and a multitude of forms. We pay thousands of dollars usually to lawyers etc because of fear of doing something incorrect. Lawyers often just fill in some details on forms themselves. RP Emery ensures you use the documents correctly. You can also get your forms checked by a lawyer as well. Thankyou RP Emery for giving us average Joe's the confidence to DIY . And save thousands of $ often 10/10 for the excellent service provided. Ian was particularly helpful.

I’m not good with computers but I completed it, however I found a little difficult it was not clear enough to me on why I couldn’t place figures in certain boxes,however as you progress and fill more figures these boxes automatically update, to my mind the only part of the lease that was not clear was if outgoings were added then GST but it’s not a deal breaker, I had purchased thinking it could be a lease of 5 years plus a couple of 5 year options, this is only possible if it’s registered but I filled it out this way until I got to the last page where this is crystal clear that the maximum with options without registration is 3 years.

Ian from RP Emery - thank you thank you thank you. My ex-husband and I are very amicable and we wanted to have a Binding Financial Agreement done to have our finances separated. We had been to different solicitors who had taken us for a ride and we hit roadblock after roadblock costing us thousands. I found RP EMERY AND ASSOCIATES by chance but upon reading the reviews I decided to do a big more digging and I put in an online enquiry for a call back. Ian called me within the hour and he just listened to what we wanted. We purchased the separation kit which was so easy to understand and fill out and the low cost absolutely blew my mind. Thousands saved from what would have been spent if we hadn't found Ian. The process was stress free and even with strict time restraints in place, Ian went above and beyond to help us. We weren't just a number in his books. An initial thought of 'this is too good to be true' plagued my mind throughout the process, but now that we're at the end of the tunnel - I am grateful beyond words. Thank you Ian and thank you to your team of lawyers who were so prompt and so professional. You are a godsend. I 100% recommend!!!
