House and Land Packages or Off the Plan Purchases - such as Jordan Springs, Glenmore Ridge, Waterview or North Penrith.
If you are thinking of buying a house and land package or an Off the Plan purchase, there are several things you need to be careful about:
1. The interests of builder/developer and your interests are not the same and in some respects, are directly opposed to each other. If the builder/developer ‘recommends’ a solicitor or conveyancer to you, ask yourself whose bests interests will that person look after if there is a problem? Bruce Coode has been looking after purchasers for nearly 40 years and as a former university lecturer in real estate law, he knows what to look out for on your behalf.
2. You have needs that are of no interest to the builder/developer, such as making sure your lender is happy to lend you the amount you want for the particular property/house you are looking at, or alternatively ensuring you get every benefit from the government such as stamp duty reductions/exemptions, grants, etc. Bruce Coode has been dealing with banks and other lenders for a long time and knows what is required by them. He was previously a legal advisor to three different local councils and so knows the best way to steer you through any problems with councils or other government departments so that you get everything you are entitled to.
