Whether you’re seeking to subdivide your own land, or purchase a property within a subdivision, the experienced team at David J Brown & Associates can help manage the process smoothly and ensure that all bases are covered.

Purchasing land within a subdivision

Before purchasing land within a subdivision, it is vital to obtain experienced legal advice. The Agreement for Sale and Purchase must provide for specific checks and balances pertaining to subdivided land.

It is customary to include “sunset” clauses giving the purchaser a right of withdrawal from the contract if the process takes too long. In addition, clauses regarding easements and variations to the plan must be covered adequately to provide fairness to the purchaser. Contact us now.

Building Contracts

Typically, building contracts that are prepared by the builder or builder’s solicitor favour the builder. Therefore, it is usually necessary to achieve some level of balance in those documents for the protection of the purchaser. It is very important that these documents are structured and expressed correctly for the person having the home built for them. Call us today.
