Any requests for access to CPWL water or Share Sales are handled by the Legal Team initially. Once a

Selling Your Farm
We receive a number of calls relating to shareholder farms for sale. These calls are primarily from
parties interested in purchasing the farm when conducting their due diligence. Their questions
How many shares are associated with the land for sale?
What is the nitrogen baseline number?
Is there a nutrient allocation for this property?
We appreciate that providing this information is very important and whilst we are happy to help as much
as possible, CPWL information relating to individual farms should be provided by the property owner via
an appointed land agent or lawyer.
Please note that we will not release any information directly to prospective purchasers. Vendors will be
required to complete a written authority form and return it to CPWL. The written authority form is
located in the Water User Agreements section of the Company
Documents page. This form specifies the farm area for sale and the number of CPWL shares to be
assigned to the property for sale. Once CPWL is in receipt of the completed signed form, we will send
the vendor (copied to sales agent and lawyer) the relevant information including:
Access agreement (if applicable)
Water use agreement and
Stored water order form (Stage 1 & 2 only)
Link Market Services confirmation of your current CPWL Shareholding
Approved Farm Environment Plan
Nutrient Budget; and
CPWL Nitrogen Licence – confirmation of allocation (if applicable)
Once CPWL has provided this information it can then be provided as part of the farm sale information pack
to any interested party. It is up to the vendor and advisors to ensure this information is correct.
This approach will ensure that all information provided is authorised by the landowner.
