A Bay of Plenty rich lister is at the centre of an estate dispute alleging he bought a Taupo farm property significantly under value.

Taupo man Warwick Burgess is also questioning the “closeness” of the relationship between former Fonterra director and regular Tauranga NBR rich lister Colin Armer and an executor of Burgess’ mother’s estate.
