A tempting idea for many Samara residents is to buy an apartment in a house under construction. The main attraction is the lower cost of housing. But at the same time a significant part of money should be invested in the initial stages of construction (design, organizational costs, site selection), when no stone is laid in the foundation. Equity participation, as the practice in Russia shows, can be a risky undertaking. At best the construction will be delayed for an indefinite period, at worst you will have to return the money through the court, continuing to live in rented apartments. In order not to be hooked by swindlers, our experts offer some useful tips.
Recommendations for choosing a reliable developer
The company’s reputation. First of all, when setting yourself up for equity participation in the construction of a house, it is necessary to find out as much information about the potential builder. It can be a legal entity that has its own land or the right to lease, carrying out residential construction on it. To gather information about the company good all ways, from forums of shareholders and ending with the services of lawyers. Trust should cause organizations that have proven themselves on the positive side.
- First of all it is necessary to learn about the “working experience” of the builder. It is not recommended to get involved in co-construction, if the company has been operating in the market for less than 5 years.
- Then it is necessary to analyze the history of the last objects. If the builder had small delays, there were no mass complaints about the quality of work, then such a company can be trusted. Practically every serious company has an official web-site where all the commissioned buildings are listed. It will not be difficult to make a short list and search on the forums of feedback from the tenants of these houses on the progress of construction and the quality of the apartments built.
- If the potential builder is building a residential home in Samara, you can visit the site to determine the pace and quality of work. It is desirable to invite an experienced builder or future tenant of the house on a tour. Make a conclusion about the financial situation of the company, you can talk to the builders about the level of wages and the timeliness of its payment.
Source of funding. To build an apartment building, there are several options for financing.
- Large construction trusts with available funds can assume the lion’s share of costs. In this case, shareholders are given a kind of deferment with a small percentage. This method is most common when the house is built for the employees of an industry or large industrial enterprise. They become the guarantor of the money return.
- Many builders actively cooperate with banks that specialize in granting loans. Some of them participate in government programs, providing benefits to certain categories of citizens.
- When the burden of financing construction falls on shareholders, they will have to unite in housing cooperatives. Lending is done on an individual basis with each member, but the HCC management takes care of all the organizational concerns.
Contractual obligations.Many shareholders lost their money because they were superficially acquainted with the proposed contract. Therefore, before you sign something on your own, it is better to spend some money on legal advice. In addition, many legal Internet portals provide free support to registered visitors. There is one point that citizens do not pay attention to. This is the name of the contract. For example, the builder offers to sign a preliminary contract on the share participation. Experts don’t recommend to approve such a document, because it’s not a good idea for a builder. k. The construction company most likely does not have permission to build. In addition, the contract has no mechanisms and guarantees to return the money invested. Only equity participation agreement should be considered.
