Kia ora, thank goodness for people like you who keep helping people like me, Im perplexed, If I cant locate Aunt Rose, can I claim it, put it in a trust til she is found? I must say Im a bit saddened that Koro chose to leave the land to just one of his children, and left the rest of his children, grandchildren and now great grandchildren with NO PLACE TO STAND!!!
Kia ora

Kia ora Mihi,

As far as I am aware you would have to claim to Koro's land shares before they release the funds. But will check this out and get back to you.

If a will wasn't left then mum or dad, could claim for a share of his land holdings. Mum or dad can still dispute the will though.

If mum or dad decide to dispute the will, then the judge will get the whanau to korero to each other and if they can't come up with a positive solution then the judge would have to abide by the will.

It makes me sad too, that his land shares were left to one person, but I spose it could be a test for your aunt, to see if she is going to share her land shares with her brothers and sisters. Beats me why your koro did that? Sorry can't explain this one!

This is one situation I have personally encountered:
The five eldest were left the land shares of their mum and dad, and the 4 youngest were left with the home. The 3 youngest have sold their shares to their youngest brother (and now they have no financial assets) and he now is the sole owner of the family home.

The five older ones have decided to include ALL the brothers and sisters into the landshares (even though they did not benefit from any monies recieved from the family home). So I guess it's up to aunt whether she is willing to share your TURANGAWAEWAE with you all. That would be good of her if she does that!

Talk to your aunt (when you find her) and ask her if you and your brothers and sisters can have some of koro's land shares. Talk to her see what you come up with. She doesn't need all those land shares and don't be whakama about it either. I wish you well, but ask her. What's that old saying? You don't know unless you ask!

Hope this helps.
All the best.
Arohamai.

Kia ora Ira, yes I think you are right, tracking down my aunt is the only answer, this morning I have begun contacting all the whanau that I can, to begin searching more intensly for her, many hands make light work aye *smiles*
Yes, Once I understood the concept of Turangawaewae, only then did I understand how important it was to me, and how it would consume me, Manawhenua of the land is also important to me.
Arohanui Ira, dont ever stop messaging people, you are the best!
