Matt, Home Buyer in Washington, DC

What are the rules that govern condo purchase in a new construction in terms of moving from one unit to?

Asked by Matt, Washington, DC Tue Jul 22, 2008

another. Can you do that if you havent locked the initial contract

Help the community by answering this question:


If you haven't finalized the contract there isn't a problem at all. If you have finalized there contract you'll need to ask the builder/developer sales representative if they can move units as requested and check to see if there are additional costs involved.

Assuming that there is an available one without a contract for you to move in, I think this could be worked out with the seller and might entail writing a new contract.

When you purchase a condo in DC, you receive 3 days to look over the condo docs. If for any reason you don't like what you see, you can pull out of the contract. With new construction you receive 15 days from the day the documents are delivered. This could be used to your advantage should you want to change to another unit.
