The ACT Government is reviewing laws to protect off-the-plan home buyers from unfair contract cancellations.

In 2021, the laws were changed to prevent property developers or sellers from cancelling, or rescinding, off-the-plan contracts unfairly. The Government committed to reviewing the changes after 2 years to make sure that they are working for our community. 

Community members who have been involved in buying or selling property off-the-plan are encouraged to provide feedback. If you’re a buyer, seller or someone who has experienced challenges with an off-the-plan property contract, including cancellation or other issues, we want to hear from you.

To provide feedback, visit the YourSay Conversations website to read the discussion paper about the current laws and submit a survey response or give written feedback.
