Soleil Group Complaint - Misrepresentation Of Square Footage

Review by Tclarke on 2009-01-29
NEW BERN, NORTH CAROLINA -- They showed me unit plans for condo that was going to be 920 square feet once completed. Once completed the condo was only 800 square feet, which is a big difference for a unit that size. The unit did not appraise for the original listed price of $326, 000. The developer [snip], the management company (Soleil Group), Skysail Condominiums the Project, [snip] all failed to mention the difference in square footage. Once confronted about, said too bad, you still need to buy this condo or we are keeping your deposit.

I now have to spend numerous amount of money to hire an attorney to get my deposit back.

If you entered into a contract with Skysail Condominiums or any other Soleil group project, make sure your appraiser measures the square footage instead of relying on their unit plans.

it seems that they did mis-represent the condo. what does your deposit state as to the unit size?

if anything, contact a lawyer and see what they say. there has to be some way you can pull out of the deal.
