    Posted: 18/January/2018 at 20:36
Hi, I recently paid a deposit on an off the plan apartment that was sold and marketed as having a 25m lap pool. Half way through construction it appears as though the pool will only be 15m.

The contract stipulates a 'pool' however as I mentioned, all marketing and plans showed a 25m lap pool.

Is there anything we can do?

Read your contract carefully, there are probably ways that you can escape the contract and get your deposit back. For example, does it give a date that the apartment will be finished?

I expect that there is nothing you can do to get them to build a bigger pool, nor do I believe you would be able to get a price reduction, but you may be able to void the contract. See a solicitor for assistance if you decide to go that course.
