    You need to get ready to settle.

    Have you already applied for finance?

    No.

    This is one of the many dangers of buying Off the Plan. Credit conditions can change between exchange and settlement. Not only is your 5% at risk, you are also at risk of being sued by the developers for any losses they may make on a resale at a lower price than you agreed to pay.

    So what is it that you are hoping / wanting to achieve?

    Do you want to settle or don't you want to settle?

    If the area is hot enough, is it worth more than what u bought it for?

    Speak to the developer and see if they are willing to let you out and resell it themselves?

    Have you got a switched on broker that may be able to crunch some numbers and get the deal done?

    I work in this field. I can give you an opinion as to whether you can settle finance wise if you like. I also work with some builders who might be able to on sell the land for you, if that's what you would prefer, or the only option.
