4.2 Living Choices - House and Land Packages

(a) Contracts

Each House and Land Package displayed or advertised on the Site consists of:
  • a land component; and
  • a home component,
each of which is sold separately of the other.
 
Peet and the Group Members do not act in any formal partnership or joint venture with builders in respect of the House and Land Packages displayed on the Site. Peet and the Group Members do have arrangements with Builders where certain Builders participate in an estate where House and Land Packages are offered. The purpose of this is to enable us to provide to you a referral to a representative of a participating Builder should you be interested in constructing a house on land in that estate.
 
A Group Member sells the land only. Please note that a Group Member that is a licensed real estate agent may act as agent for Peet or other Group Members in respect of the sale of the land only.
 
Purchasers wishing to buy a House and Land Package will need to:
  • enter in to a contract, with the relevant Group Member who owns the land, for the purchase of the land ("Land Contract"); and
  • enter into a separate contract with the relevant builder ("Builder") for the construction of the house on the land ("Building Contract").
A Land Contract may or may not be interdependent with the Building Contract. It will depend on the terms and conditions of the Land Contract and the Building Contract.
 
Peet and the Group Members have no responsibility or liability whatsoever in relation to the actions of, or products offered by, Builders.
 
Once a Land Contract and a Building Contract have been entered into, a purchaser cannot select an alternative house and/or an alternative parcel of land under a House and Land Package, unless such change is first agreed to by the relevant Group Member that owns the land and the Builder. Where such a change is agreed to, prices and any promotional offers may also change.
 
Purchasers must review all information carefully and make their own enquiries regarding that information. It is recommended that purchasers obtain independent advice before proceeding to enter into a Land Contract or a Building Contract.
 
If there is any inconsistency between these Terms of Use and the Land Contract or the Building Contract, then the terms of the Land Contract or the Building Contract, as applicable, will prevail.

(b) Registration of Interest in a House and Land Package

Once you register your interest in respect of a House and Land Package, a Builder (or its representative) may contact you regarding the house component of the House and Land Package you are interested in.

  • to have your contact details forwarded to the relevant Builder (including its employees, agents, representatives and contractors used in connection with the promotion and sale of its products as they relate to your request) for the purposes of contacting you to discuss your interest regarding the house component of the selected House and Land Package; and
  • that we and the relevant Builder may use that information (and disclose it to any employees, contractors, agents and other representatives that work with us and/or the relevant Builder) for the purposes of:
    • dealing with your submission of interest and any further enquiries you may have; and
    • providing products and services to you.
A registration of interest does not create any interest in, or constitute any contractual relationship concerning any House and Land Package identified or selected on the Site.

When you are contacted by our representatives, they will provide details regarding the cost of the land offered for sale. You will need to contact the relevant Builder directly to obtain further details regarding the cost and other details of the house component of the selected House and Land Package, as this information is only able to be provided by that Builder.

Registrations of interest in a House and Land Package may also be made by you via telephone direct to one of our representatives.

By making a registration of interest, you are under no obligation to purchase any House and Land Package.

We do not charge you any fee to make a registration of interest.

We do not warrant or represent that all or any houses displayed on the Site comply with the building covenants or design guidelines relevant to the land being sold. All houses being built must comply with the relevant building covenants and design guidelines affecting the land. Purchasers are responsible for satisfying themselves as to the compatibility of the house with the land and the applicable building covenants and design guidelines.

Building covenants and design guidelines are available from our representatives for information purposes only. We make no representations or warranties regarding any such documentation that our representatives provide to you.

The building covenants and design guidelines provided by our representatives are subject to change and may not be identical to the building covenants and design guidelines included or referenced in any Land Contract.
