House and Land Packages
S.J. Salisbury Constructions Pty Ltd holds builder’s licence number 57020 under the Building Work Contractors Act 1995 (SA).
SSG Real Estate Pty Ltd is registered agent RLA 262661 under the Land Agents Act 1994 (SA).
House and Land Packages that are promoted or advertised on the Website may involve the sale of land that we do not own. In that case when we offer such land for sale we are acting as agent for the owner of the land. The sale of any such land will be by private treaty and separate Sale of Land contract between you and the owner of the land.
If you wish to buy the land through us, you must also enter into a building contract with us for the construction of a house on the land. If you do not wish to enter into a building contract with us but you want to buy the land, you must deal with the owner of the land and negotiate a price with that owner. We will not be involved in those dealings.
If we do own the land, you must enter into a building contract with us if you want to buy the land.
The plans and specifications for any house we are to build for you are clearly spelt out in the contract documentation that we will prepare for you. You should check that documentation carefully, take your own independent legal and other advice on it and ensure that it covers all of the features you are expecting from your home before you sign it.
