The 2019 Contract for Sale has amended the planning general condition from the hallowed provisions of general condition 36 to a new general condition 32. This seminar will highlight the changes made to general condition 32 and the impact of same on transactions under the 2019 Contract for Sale. The seminar will also give an in-depth account of the BCAR system, how it works, and the benefits for purchasers under this system and what to look out for and obtain when closing the purchase of a newly erected property or completing the lease of a newly built or fitted out property. In addition, emerging trends in the residential sector will also be explored, including an overview of PRS and the legal structures utilised in the acquisition and disposal of PRS schemes (forward fund vs forward sale).
