2017 Millionaire Mega Conference Special
  • It has been very frustrating. As a first time buyer it wasnt something that I would of wanted to face but i feel that i have learnt so much from this and as a future investor it was very helpful.

    I saw a friend who is a lawyer, he couldnt give me too much advice with out me having to pay and he said they were quite expensive. and he made a few…[Read more]

  • This has finally been sorted.

    Basically the engineers who Cut the block, cut it so that when we build a house we dont need the builders to do it. they actually cut it too much so having a drive way would be difficult and future problems such as retaining walls and irrigation. Our property developer has agreed with me that they have made a…[Read more]

  • CLick benching plan on the end of my above post to see block

  • Hey Guys,

    Unfortunately this is still going,

    where we are up to now is that i believe the height of drop should be 640mm based on the height on the footpath 103.84 and the height after the drop, 103.20
    however I am now being told that those are Estimates based on a standard slab

    “Advice from the engineering consultant is that…[Read more]

  • Thanks Benny,
    I have sent my contract to a lawyer who specialises in this, and hopefully a positive outcome can occur.

    Thanks everyone for the advice.

  • This issue only arised on Saturday when I had a meeting with my neighbours and builder to find out the additional costs. Thats why I have posted on hear to find information on how i should go about this….

  • I am only new to this, this is my first property, I was trying to see what I had going in my favour, when i said i emailed VCAT that was just for advice as someone told me i should ask.

    I have asked my Conveyancer the same questions. Im trying to work out everything…

  • in regards to?

  • I havent seen a solicitor yet, I have emailed a request to VCAT
    my conveyancer was shocked when she saw the photos though and didnt think that it was right.

  • So because they didnt disclose the defects in the land, I now will be out of pocket for interest fees, stamp duty and any chance of owning land in that area for that price?

    I could have chosen the same size block opposite and not had these problems?

  • I’m not entirely sure but i think the entire estate is built on a slope. all the houses on the streets behind my land, all their drive ways are going upwards a little or are even. Our block of land is even with the house we back on to now and their drive way is even with their house. there are only 5 blocks which have this problem and…[Read more]

  • They dont concern me too much as they arent too close to me.

    I really like the area, but if i walk away, get my cash back or sell privately, there isnt anything around in that price range, i feel like I have been ripped off, i could have spent the same price for the block opposite me but it seems like a lucky dip and i was unfortunate enough to…[Read more]

  • The problem with getting the land bought back is that there are no other blocks available for purchase, if we were to purchase something similar we will be looking at paying $30k+ for something similar.. if we knew there was a problem we would have bought the block on the opposite side of the road not this one…

  • Hey Guys,

    I joined the forum a few years ago, but never needed to post. Until now.

    I bought land in June and was titled in October for a 448sqm block in Plumpton – Western Suburbs.

    When I purchased the land, at the time I wasn’t allowed to see it, due to construction of roads, fences, barricades, you name it. At the end of the day I thought, i…[Read more]
