Off the Plan
(Greenfield Sites)

Start up purchases either off the plan or direct from the developer should be approached with a clear knowledge of the business model. In most cases lenders prefer experienced management rights operators although other complimentary experience is generally well regarded. Off the Plan purchase contracts will be predicated on a projected net profit which should be the subject of an accountant’s report, inclusive of projections and assumptions.

The management rights contract should contain appropriate “claw back” provisions to ensure that any short fall in initial letting pool numbers is adjusted in terms of the purchase price. Generally the contract will specify an adjustment amount per unit for any letting pool shortfall. The purchaser then provides the stakeholder (usually the vendor’s solicitor) with a bank guarantee for the shortfall (retention amount) on the basis that provided the letting pool shortfall is made up within an agreed time frame (retention period) the balance purchase is paid via a call up of the bank guarantee. If there is still a shortfall at the end of the retention period (the adjustment date) the bank guarantee sum is partly allocated in line with the number of units achieved in the letting pool during the retention period.
