Hi , I have purchased an off the plan apartment. I have paid my deposit and settlement is in a few weeks. I have now discovered the vendor has sold me an illegal ensuite that was never approved by council. I have gotten legal advice and they have said I have the right to rescind. Vendor advertised all marketing materials and my contract says apartment comes with an ensuite.I went to check in council and confirmed it was illegal. someone from council leaked the information to the developer that I had gone to check the council apartment plans, vendors lawyer sends a an amendment to contract to sign that there is no ensuite. Of course I am not going to sign. I would like to know if anyone knows of a case law that has made precedent and is very similar to my situation. I am hoping to find as many to strengthen my case.
