Many property buyers are attracted to housing schemes, apartment buildings, and commercial projects that offer properties on installments along with guaranteed rental income. Unfortunately, developers often default on their promises, resulting in delayed property delivery and unpaid guaranteed rentals. We understand the frustration and financial strain this causes, and we are here to provide comprehensive legal services to protect your interests and seek remedies against these defaults.

1. Delayed Property Delivery: Buyers are promised property possession by a specific date, but the developer fails to meet the deadline, causing significant inconvenience and financial losses. Buyers can seek compensation for the delay, enforce the agreement to expedite delivery, or claim damages for breach of contract.

2. Unpaid Guaranteed Rentals: Developers offer guaranteed rental income to attract buyers, but subsequently fail to make the promised payments. Buyers can enforce the contract terms to claim unpaid rentals, seek damages for breach of contract, or pursue legal action for fraud if misrepresentation is involved.

3. Poor Construction Quality: Properties are delivered, but the construction quality is subpar, not matching the promised standards. Buyers can demand repairs or compensation for defects, or seek a reduction in the purchase price if the quality is significantly below expectations.

4. Unfulfilled Development Promises: Developers promise various amenities and infrastructure that are not delivered as per the agreement. Buyers can enforce the completion of promised amenities, seek compensation for the lack of facilities, or rescind the contract if the amenities were a crucial part of the purchase decision.
