Crockers are New Zealand's leading body corporate experts. Our experienced Business Development Team has resources dedicated to working with developers from the inception of a project. This allows developers to get on with the myriad of things that have to be done to get a development underway without the distractions associated with getting the body corporate up and running. In our experience, bodies corporate work best in the long run if they are set up properly in the first place.
