How do I change the Registrant (legal holder) of a domain name?

Freeparking provides a free online Registrant Transfer process.
The new Registrant will need an account with Freeparking that the domain name can be transferred into. If they do not have an existing account, they can create one here.
The new Registrant will need to provide the old Registrant with the username of their account before they can initiate the transfer. To start the transfer process, the old Registrant logs in to their account at https://secure.freeparking.co.nz/ and selects to manage the domain name from under the 'Services' menu.
From the domain’s management page, click on the 'Contact Details' section and select the 'Transfer Registrant' option.
The old Registrant will then be asked to enter the username of the account to transfer the domain name into (the new Registrant's account).
The new Registrant will need to confirm acceptance of the domain name transfer, which they can do by logging into their account after the transfer has been initiated.
Once confirmed, the domain name will be transferred to the new Registrant's account.
Alternatively, we can manually complete a registrant transfer for you - please note that a processing fee of $39.95 + GST applies.
