What you see is not what you get.
The photos of the property displayed on the real estate agency shop window may look nice, and when you have a tour of the property the floor plan may impress you and the ‘feel’ of it may persuade you to think that you may have just found the property for you.
But the aesthetic look of the property won’t tell you that there are 3 easements over the property that will affect how you can build on it.
It won’t tell you that the property is a heritage site that significantly restricts what you can do with it. It won’t lead you to discover that your off the plan property will take 8 years to build, when your circumstances require you to move in 2 years earlier. And it won’t disclose all the terms that constitute unacceptable risks that you should be aware of before signing the contract.
