Default Lawyer for the contrcat

So we finally ended up buying the Hyde from Minto during the weekend, closing date March 2018 ( finger crossed), did anybody give the contract to a lawyer to review as basically, they have the unique contract?

Hyde has a very nice basement. We ended up with Kinghurst after pondering over it.

Default I thought they only revise uowards

Oh really ...

I thought it only went up. Was there a time that it went down ?? Interesting to know that as that would determine our purchase plan.

May be they are applying pressure . I saw the 36 ft homes increased by 17k

Sorry, I should have been more clear, not now in this community I had noticed that at least once in the past in Chapman Mills area. It went down a bit on some & then up again.

The model at Arcadia really shows off how much can be done with the space. I love the kitchen in there!

I'm not sure when the park will be built, though.

We chose lot 227 on Eagle Crest Heights. It had a big premium on it, but we decided that we really valued having trees behind us!
Finallly booked with Minto Potter Key, Fitzroy Model... @ Eagle Crest heights ..
Exciting times ahead..Would love to hear from anyone gone to design center stage ..

Make sure you don't become dependent on the date. Expect it to change. Íf you have a place to sell wait until you have a structure with roof and windows. Schedules are pretty reliable at that point.

Planning to move twice is better than owning 2 homes or none. If you have a landlord ask to have flexibility in giving your 60 days notice. At least that is shorter than the 90 days the builder has before compensation kicks in.

Always get a lawyer to review a sales agreement.
