This report focuses on understanding the barriers and drivers for Māori to undertake succession through the Māori Land Court (MLC) to become owners of Māori freehold or customary land (Māori land).

Based on a survey developed out of exploratory workshops held with staff at Te Tumu Paeroa and the Māori Land Court, and rangatahi, a series of hypotheses were tested to measure how well the succession process is understood by owners of Māori land and what factors influence whether succession will take place. The alignment between concepts that underpin Whānau Ora and the drivers for whānau undertaking succession was also tested. Finally, the research explored how long it takes for whānau to be ready to apply for succession, and the preparations they make in advance for the land to pass to the next generation.
