An interesting point is the property tax and the property transaction tax (“LBTT”) (or stamp duty – “SDLT” – in England and Wales). As a general rule, a future funding agreement is established in the form of two contracts. The first (land contract) provides that the developer transfers ownership of the land to the developer buyer at the beginning before development begins. The second (construction agreement) will contain development and other commitments. A significant saving of LBTT/SDLT can be achieved through a structuring agreement in this way – since the LBTT/SDLT only soars on the land price and not on the construction costs and profits of the developer. (However, Revenues Scotland, which manages the LBTT, seems to be taking a slightly tougher line here than HMRC, which manages LA SDLT.) In large-scale construction, contractors prefer to be able to sell housing on behalf of the landowner without interference from landowners. It is customary for the parties to negotiate a provision allowing the developer to sell long-standing weapons to third-party buyers at a price not below the price listed. To control the sale process, landowners generally require entry into the sale price and a right to approve or reject any proposed changes to the housing price list. In 2002, Woodfield Constructions Pty Ltd (Woodfield) entered into a “management agreement” with Jojill Nominees Pty Ltd (Jojill). Jojill was the registered owner of a property and entrusted Woodfield with the management of a project to develop a townhouse on the land. The development included the construction of 3 townhouses with connected parking. If the parties intend the developer to have the right to issue a reservation on a property, it will be important in the development agreement to carefully define the right to submit the reserve.
It may be better for parties to use other security to protect the developer`s claims. The development agreement could contain provisions requiring measures, such as . B: provisions to ensure the quality of development; Make the particular evolution in accordance with agreed plans and specifications; The agreement required Jojill to sell Lot 2 on Woodfield`s orders and not otherwise to produce the product.
