Hi guys, Need some advice on my current situation. I have recently bought two apartments off the plan which are being built and will be complete in November. The requirement to buy any of the apartments is a $25,000 deposit and the balance paid upon settlement in November 2016. It says so on the construction site and many advertising banners all over the RE websites. I have had a friend recommend me this property manager who sold me the first apartment and I paid $25,000 deposit. I was going to buy a second apartment for the same price ($25,000 deposit) but was told my my broker that I may not be able to afford it right now. A week later my broker said I can afford a second apartment, and she asked me to call the property manager and talk to her. When I rang the property manager about buying the second apartment, she said that she has one of her own apartments for sale in that building and she wants to get rid of one apartment because she "took on too much". She then went and told me that to buy into it I would pay the regular $25,000 buy in deposit as I did with the first one and then also pay her another $25,000 under the table because apparently the market price has gone up on that apartment (she never said that the price went up on the first apartment). Because I am still completely new to this and I trusted this property manager as she works with my friend I agreed to go ahead and transfer her the first deposit $25,000 and two days later another $25,000. The contract I signed for the two apartments said nothing about paying additional $25,000 to her. After having given this a lot of thoughts, I think I have been tricked into paying her an extra $25,000 because the law states that "it doesn’t matter if the market value has jumped by settlement time, you don’t have to pay more". I have expressed my concern to her about this and she wants to meet and talk about it. I feel hard done by and stupid now. The settlement is in November. Do I have a right to ask for my $25,000 payment back? What can I do to fix this? I realise it may cost me the second apartment, but from what I understand is that my first $25,000 went towards securing the property and the second $25,000 went into her pocket for simply holding that apartment. Please advise me.
