Where can I find the size of the condo unit I’m buying in the builder’s pre-construction contract?
I frequently get asked this question when I review builder offers with clients. In more than half the contracts I see, the sad answer is that there is no reference at all to room sizes or the area of the home.
A purchase agreement without a measured floor plan allows a builder to deliver a unit smaller than what was promised in the sales materials.
Here’s how it works. In a typical builder sales office, purchasers will be shown a brochure containing a floor plan with all room measurements and the total size of the unit. Unfortunately, those measurements have been known to disappear from the same floor plans attached as a schedule to the purchase offer.
