I have . the building is not finished tho
Solicitor: John Melis, Lawyer replied 2 months ago

When you prepare the contract of sale, just make sure the section 32 statement contains all the details about the future building to avoid misleading claims.

A lot of vendors sell property with a permit only on place.

You have a legal right to protect your interests in this important situation.

If you need any further information let me know and I will be pleased to assist.

You can come back to this post any time to ask questions and there will be no further charges to you.

Don’t forget to rate me 5 stars as this supports me helping the community, and your important questions.
