About the webinar

The boom in off the plan developments shows no sign of slowing down. OTP contracts are complicated and there are real risks to purchasers, vendors and vendor financiers. On top of this, the courts keep refining the rules. This presentation explains what to look out for and what to do if things change or go wrong.  It includes:

  • Common disputes:
    • cold feet
    • this is not what I thought I was buying!
    • changing the plan of subdivision after the contract is signed
  • What is the legal basis for avoiding an OTP contract?
  • Does the contract of sale include a sufficient description of the property?
  • What are the vendor’s obligations if the plan of subdivision changes?
  • Problem with representations in marketing materials
  • Sale of Land Act provisions and sunset clauses
  • Recent cases
