"Retention of Title and the Trans-Tasman Supply of Goods"

Juliet Taylor, 2006

Against the background of an overview of retention of title regimes in Australia and New Zealand, the author explores conflict of laws issues in relation to trans-Tasman supply of goods. The article focuses on specific problems in this regard as a result of the divergence of the Australian and New Zealand regimes, as well as inadequately drafted conflict of laws provisions in the New Zealand Personal Property Securities Act 1999. The author emphasises the importance, also for Australian suppliers of goods to New Zealand buyers, of registering retention of title arrangements on the (New Zealand) Personal Properties Securities Register.
