I've tried unsuccessfully to find answer to this question, but generally what is minimum deposit required to purchase care land?

I thought it was 50% with services to the gate or 75% without?

Does Urban (small) vs rural (say 2-10 acres) have any effect on deposit size?

Anyone aware of a lender who would loan on bare land alone at less than 50%?

Do you have equity in another property (with house) that you can leverage?

I took a land loan out for comparatively a very low %, but when they have both properties as security the difference is mostly in your head ??. They also wanted draft/provisional build plans to see that something could be built within budget (not just a land bank)

Would recommend talking to squirrel mortgage brokers. In my experience the best way to find out your options, each bank differs.

I spoke to the BNZ just today on this and they wanted 50% deposit, for a neighboring residential (800sqm) section.

 

If you do find someone wanting less deposit, I'd be keen to talk to them also.

There are a number of factors involved. We did so with 10% deposit, but had intentions (and included as conditions in the S&P) to begin building on it within 6 months. Without this clause we were advised 50%. This is for a standard residential section, not large rural block etc.
