Try searching again, or ask your own question 2 Our users say: Posted by: Amasi | 2013/01/10 Tanya''s answer is correct.In layman''s terms, when an estate is developed (by developer), there are certain rules that apply. Some of them I think are crazy and aimed to make a house look like Stepford in Stepford Wives (drive into any estate you will see houses that look exactly the same).These rules includes issues like building should commence within 5 years after the estate is approved (forgot the term), once you start building you should finish within 18 months of starting.If you are buying 2yrs after that " approval" you have 3 yrs to start building. If you dont build within that time, there will be penalty in the levies as " your land is getting value because of our houses" .So, get the rules from your owners'' association and find out what are the rules in that estate.Oh, whilst at it. I remember reading somewhere that municipal rates are very high if you didn''t build.716aou Reply to Amasi Posted by: Tanya | 2013/01/09 Find out from the developer Reply to Tanya Have your say Your name (optional) Your comment Security × Thanks for commenting!
