  • Hello NSW2011.How, from a legal standpoint, can you possibly lose your deposit should you decide to cool off during your legislated cooling off period? Answer: you can't.

  • Hi Zenetti.There are ways to prevent this developer from bending you over a desk and giving it to you. PLEASE don't be intimidated by his size or prior success in squashing the 'little guy'. At the very least, there are ways to turn him into a voodoo doll and just keep sticking pins in him. I sincerely wish you well!

Unfortunately, it's as black & white as that. Remember the Law can be a TURTLE and an ASS – it's SLOW and it's STUPID at t…
