    What customers thought
    Excellent site and service, payment and download was effortless. The document itself was just what I needed and the explanation at the end was very helpful. Will definitely use this site again.

    Review of the New Zealand version
    Netlawman online & downloadable legal documents are excellent, and a very (and I mean VERY) affordable price. Simple - up to date & importantly using plain English. Also with an 'advise' section attached explaining a few other good things to know about this particular law & contract.

    Review of the New Zealand version
    It was exactly what I needed, did the job, and arrived within 5 minutes. How good is that ??? I had to change a couple of words to adapt it for my circumstances, which is what you expect with a template, but the main benefits were the speed of delivery and the price. You saved me almost $400 and about 3 days of to and fro with a lawyer. Highly recommended.
