LANDinfoNET Ltd was formed by the amalgamation of Graham & Graham (since 1972) with Beresfort Legal Agency (since 1981) under the directorship of David Graham and Management of Janelle Weir.

The combined strength of two strong companies:
A brief history

Graham & Graham Limited being a totally service orientated firm that began in 1972. Founder Bob Graham left a 15-year career with Land & Deeds (now LINZ), where he was a senior Registrar of Land and Companies, to provide a vital interface between solicitors and the Land Transfer system. Bob's vision was to provide a service running the gamut from simple searching through to expert technical advice on the Land Transfer Act 1952, related legislation and the idiosyncrasies of LINZ and its systems.

In 1990 David Graham became a partner after a 7-year history working for (and in partnership with) the legal profession. David's goal is to set the highest standard of service for the modern conveyancer in an increasingly dynamic Land Transfer and PPSR system, where LINZ and other government departments move ever forward into the information technology age.

Beresfort Legal Agency began in 1981 as a small division of a Property Management Group. Since then it diversified, grew and expanded from 4 staff and one office, to 16 staff and offices in Auckland and Hamilton. Beresfort Legal being fully committed to customer satisfaction and providing the best possible service, including friendly, highly trained staff and expert knowledge of the fast changing Land Transfer system.

In 1998, Des Wragge Legal Agents was incorporated into Beresforts to produce a "one stop, complete service" legal agency dedicated to keeping abreast of the changing world of conveyancing and offering technical consultancy in all degrees.

In 1999, Janelle Weir became Manager after 7 years of being with the company from the early beginnings and through into the amalgamation.
