FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 
How do I select a unit? 
Before your closing date you will be given an opportunity to select a unit.
How does the reservation process go?
On receiving the reservation the developer will allocate a unit to the buyers according to their reservation date. The buyers will be issued confirmed reservations and locked in at the low purchase prices as of on the reservation date. On receipt of the payment, immediately a LETTER OF ALLOTMENT will be issued to the buyer. 
 Selecting your unit:    2-3 months prior to completion of the building the buyers if they have not sold off their units at a profit by then, according to their reservation date will be given an opportunity to inspect and select their units.  On completion date the buyer can select to take the Buy-back or continue as owner. As owner the buyer gets rental income monthly.
I reserved the unit in my personal name and I want to change it into a joint name. Can I do that?
2-3 months prior to completion of the building the buyers will be given an opportunity to select their units and also decide the legal name for registration on their unit. (some buyers may like a change from their original reservation name). At this time you may change your name from a single name to a joint name or any other legal name or entity.
 
How do I use my Condo for FREE?  
The owners have 2 options.The purchaser can use his purchase and stay in the hotel for Free and when not using it is rented and making money for him. This is how the free stay works. Or the owner can remove the unit from the rental pool and stay free in the unit.  However in this case, the owner will have to pay the HOA monthly fees for each month in advance. The owner can select whichever option suits him/her the best.

Personal Occupied units: The owner may decide not to take part in the rental management program. This option the owner can take. Basically this leaves the unit occupied by the owner. The owner can let it to friends or other guests, Long term yearly rentals are OK. However he is barred from letting it out on commercial short term daily or weekly basis and competing with the hotel itself. If the owner elects this option, the owner has to pay home owners association fees of $25 per month. The owners may still take advantage of the cleaning services as a regular hotel suite and other hotel services for a service fee of $30 per month. For Parking units,  owners association fees is $5 per month and cleaning and upkeep fees are $ 5 per month.This ensures the upkeep of your apartment to the same standards as that of the regular hotel suites. Regardless of which program is chosen, owners will have the opportunity to change their plan every 2 months.

Would the developer keep me informed on the progress?
As the project takes shape the developer will post photos and 3D views of the building from all directions and of the exterior, interior and the units itself and post the same on the site.

Can I come and visit the property before I buy? 
Of course the buyer is welcome to come out and view the property before purchase. Just remember that developments tend to sell out couple of months before the start of construction, so it may be that the buyer can only see the area where it is going to be rather than the building itself. For Buyers who reserve today, the developer is offering  rebate for free trip. 
What is the rental yield I can expect? 
Currently in India, Nigeria, Slovakia, Turkey, Mozambique, South Africa and Zanzibar there is a healthy rental market. It is worth bearing in mind that currently there is a shortage of property to either rent or to buy to live in and many developments will not be available to live in until the end of 2023.

I need more specifications and construction details?

The developer will have to maintain the standards as stipulated in the regulations issued with regards to building construction, and also safety issues.  In the event of a problem, assistance can be found from the regulatory agencies, and from the contract entered into with the developer. This may contain building covenants, which often provide a guarantee of workmanship of 10 years. There is also the Governmental civil code, which contains protection regarding building standards.

On rare occasions,, it may no longer be possible to purchase a property reserved through the company. On such occasions, the Company will pay compensation as mentioned under the property details page.

How easy is it to buy and sell property Abroad? 
Very easy, but the present system for buying and selling property is not one which is likely to be familiar to many global investors. Typically most countries that use Common Law require a lawyer to represent each party or a public official in Civil Law jurisdictions. In most other countries you can buy straight from the developer "off-plan" for little or no fees; alternatively you can buy direct from another private vendor in the secondary market, whether the property has been completed or not. Usually there is an extremely buoyant market as demand currently exceeds supply and you will be able to sell your property in the secondary market before completion or after the property has been built. However many property developers require their consent to sale and purchases, and may also charge a transfer fee of between 5% and 10%. You do not need our permission to sell or resell your ownership and we will not charge you, the seller any sale fees. The seller can  use the developer Buy-back guarantee or  join the developer's resale pool to earn quick profits. click here.
If I decided to sell before completion of the project, would that  be possible and
would I be penalized in anyway?
There is no penalty. In fact the developer under its Resale Pool will help you resell the property. 
 
Are there any other fees while the project is being built and what about after completion? 
None.  
 
Are there any issues with buying Abroad and being a foreign
investor?
 
No. 
 
Any type of tax? 
On profits there could be a  capital gains tax.
 
Are there any Legal costs in purchasing a property? 
No, there are no legal costs involved since your contract is direct with the developer. There are only legal costs incurred if you decide to ask a lawyer to act on your behalf. Please contact us for details if you wish to use a solicitor who specializes in international law. 
 
What deposit is required? 
Normally for apartments the  developer has Two payment options:  20% down and nothing to pay until completion. Or you can pay for the entire purchase price and get a  discount.
You will find exact details of payment plans on the pages detailing the individual developments. 
What are the Options on making the payments? 
The buyer may send the payment by check, cashiers check, (out of country checks are not accepted). By online Bill pay,  money order, Western Union, Bank transfers, Wiring funds, credit card, Bitcoin etc. Any means, which is convenient  and more economical to the buyer.   The  buyer may pay by credit card or use a service like Paypal for payment.  The buyer has to bear all exchange rate differences. The developer will bear credit card transaction fees as applicable.  . If using Paypal go to www.paypal.com and send payment to the developers email account.   All funds received are immediately credited to the buyers account with the developer. 
 
Is this a safe investment? 
Not only safe, it gives an excellent Investment opportunity, to the Investor seeking high returns of  18 - 30%.
 
What does the low price guarantee mean? 
Low price guarantee: When ever the developer makes a change, and if the change is an extra benefit, then under the Low price guarantee, existing buyers automatically qualify for the added benefits. If the change is like a price increase or lower benefits, then the existing buyers gets to keep the prices already committed to the buyers. This is Win Win for the existing buyers.
 
Will the property be Freehold? 
Most of the developments are offering freehold properties. 
 
Will my real estate agent or broker participation be honored?  
If you have listed your broker's name online at the time of your original registration, And your broker is registered by us and has helped in making the sale, then the broker participation will be honoured. If you did not indicate a broker at the time of initial registration, that option is no longer available.
