In return, the promoter assumes at its own expense various obligations – such as . B the application for a building permit – and, if successful, he may decide whether or not to purchase the land. The price they must pay can be negotiated as soon as the building permit has been issued, is set at an agreed minimum. He is convinced that transport agreements tend to favour the landowner, as both parties strive to obtain the best possible price for the country which, because it is sold on the open market, is subject to a competitive procedure. While the competitive nature of a promotional agreement is a good thing, the potential drawback is that the promoter is not necessarily in the best position to understand what local developers are looking for. There is a risk that huge amounts of money and time will be spent on obtaining planning approval for a system that no one wants to buy or build, either because of the different requirements of the local market or because it is not economically viable. The landowner is legally required to sell the land and all proceeds from a sale are then distributed between them and between the project proponent, but only after the developer has been reimbursed for planning and other technical costs. If both agreements are well negotiated, they can achieve a satisfactory result. However, consideration should be given to the particular circumstances of the land, its location, the characteristics of the local market and the planning legacy of the area in deciding on the best approach, which is why it is always useful to have professional advice. Contracts that depend on planning often provide that the building permit must be “satisfactory” to the buyer, as they are not willing to complete the transaction if the building permit does not allow them to carry out the development of their proposed plan on the land.
A “satisfactory building permit” is often defined as a building permit that does not have an “incriminating” or “unreasonable” condition. Reaching an agreement with a developer or developer can be an effective way for individuals to release additional value from their country, especially if they don`t have the time, experience or money to fund the promotion and planning process themselves. It is customary for contracts to sell commercial properties to be concluded on the basis that the conclusion of the transaction is conditional on a party (usually the buyer) obtaining the building permit. The sale price will generally be a figure that assumes that the property benefits from the building permit to which the party must apply. The agreement should indicate who is obligated to meet the condition and exactly what is needed (i.e. the outline or full authorization of a specific use or scheme). This practice note assumes that the buyer is subject to this obligation. Some buyers include their own bespoke list of inappropriate conditions. A broad list of subjective conditions can give the buyer full latitude to accept a building permit and trigger the conclusion of the purchase or refuse it and leave. In such a case, the buyer may have an in option, in fact an appeal option.
For option and promotion Agreements are usually two of the most popular agreements. But what`s the difference? And when should we choose one for the other? A promotional contract looks like an option, but the organizer is generally not a contractor/developer. Instead, once the building permit is issued, they will put the land on the market and sell it to third parties. Often, an important factor in the promotion of land may be the ability to demonstrate the delivery capacity of a system to the local authority. In these circumstances, a partnership with a credible developer as part of an option agreement could be more beneficial. This practice note takes into account claims for breach of legal obligations.
