I Bought/Reserved a 30th floor flat from a developer in summer 2013 and was told that my flat is the highest floor with a balcony. That means I will have an open sky balcony. This is definitely a great feature with significant added value to the flat.
Now as the building approaches the completion, I went to the site and noticed there are actually balconies installed to the floors above. I checked with the developer and was told they modified the building plan after my reservation/exchange. They didn’t specify exactly when. Neither myself nor my solicitor was notified of this change. As a result, the supposed premium open sky balcony has been turned into a normal covered balcony.
Definitely a significant change from my perspective and the property now is not what was sold to me and not what I expected.
To me, this is totally a sales and marketing trick they are playing and it is very unfair.
The Developer claims they are within their rights making this kind of modification.
Can they do this?
