Depending on the form, content and circumstances, a development contract can be terminated in different ways: by expiry of the development contract, termination, dissolution, annulment, nullity and consensual consent. Some of these termination options may be excluded by contract in the development contract. On the other hand, a development contract can normally be terminated after a reasonable period of time on the basis of case law (otherwise it would remain in force indefinitely), even if no termination is provided. The agreement also defines the price to be paid by the buyer, which could only be an agreed fixed amount, but rather reflects the value of the post-closing development based on the capitalization of rents payable by the tenants. The risk of planning is the risk that the planning authority will not approve the project in the proposed form. The planning authority may authorize construction under unacceptable conditions, refuse construction or request construction modifications. It may be wise for the parties to negotiate the circumstances in which they will challenge the decision of a planning authority and to what extent they exercise the right of appeal and take into account the appropriate conditions in the agreement. This should help avoid a deadlock scenario. In some states, the property modification tax must be paid, including the creation of an economic interest in the property, or the creation of a trust. It is therefore important to avoid building trust in the country that is the subject of the development agreement. It is important for the developer to understand the current funding, if any, on the land and if the land is leased or if it has a different load that may affect the feasibility of development. provisions to ensure the quality of development; Compared to other costs, the developer generally funds development costs until funding is available.
(f) constructive confidence arose, despite the fact that the agreement did not give Woodfield the land, that there was no explicit declaration of confidence or surrender. The futures contract determines when ownership of the property is transferred to the buyer – as a rule, this will be done after the end of the project. When a third party funds construction costs, they will generally collect a royalty on the property that will only be released when the proceeds of the sale are available for repayment of the loan. But even if the developer funds the development from its own capital, the developer will not want to transfer the property until it is completed, in order to avoid the risk of spending money on the construction of land that it does not own. Provisions that instruct the buyer/tenant to terminate the contract if the developer has a serious violation, does not respect a long stopping point or becomes insolvent. Parties should be required to continue to fulfill, as far as possible, their obligations under the development contract during the litigation process. 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. The development agreement should also provide for an authorisation procedure for the design of the development. The initial approach should be added to the agreement and the landowner should obtain specific permission to deviate from the proposed concept. In the absence of a proposed concept, the question is whether the minimum requirements for the number of dwellings or commercial buildings and a quality criterion should be taken into account. The agreement required Jojill to sell Lot 2 on Woodfield`s orders and not otherwise to produce the product.
