Foreigners should not be about to purchase land until they are working, tax paying, citizens of New Zealand. They should be capped at a maximum of two properties. They should be placed at the back of the line when I comes to prime real estate. They should not be able to purchase more than five hectares of land unless using it for some type of occupation e.g farming. Where they must employ New Zealanders.

I'd prefer all land should be owned by citizens and domestic companies. If foreigners are part of domestic company they should pay a small amount more of tax. There should be tax paid on it and there should be consent processes. I have bought land overseas and , smartly, I had huge restrictions and taxes imposed on me. NZ'er's don't make the same amount of money as some overseas people and can't compete and some people have 'take' only mentality and don't live in the areas where they own the land and don't face the problems some of their activities result in.
