Episode 272 | Gold Coast Buyer Sues Deceloper......Marine Quarter Saga!!!

Times are a changing....at least with off the plan projects they are. Ever since the changes to the unfair contract terms regime commenced 9 November 2023, we have seen the goal posts shift even further in relation to off the plan projects creating an almost new landscape for developers and their lawyers to become quite skillful in their drafting. Well, this segment is yet another example of how times are changing yet again. We talk about the buyer who has recently commenced proceedings in the District Court claiming damages against the developer for Marine Quarter Southport project, for a proposed termination of the contract of sale, asking for more money from the buyers to keep their contract on foot. Only time will tell us the outcome of this saga, unless of course the matter is settled out of court, which it may very well be.


Despina firmly believes that being in the privileged position of a solicitor that she gives back to the community when she can. This has been transcended into her weekly radio show 'Talking Law' that is broadcast on the Gold Coast each Thursday on 104.1FM Gold Coast/Tweed & 103.5FM Northern Rivers and has been going strong now since 2020. Despina talks about various hot topics at local, state and federal level, and answers the questions that ordinary Australians want to hear. And the best part, it is free. Despina is not paid for her time on air and she enjoys the fact she can give back to the community in this manner. Knowledge is power and her radio show is very much about empowering the ordinary Australian with information that they should be aware of to help them in every day life. Despina has a very big following on air and online with a facebook community page for the radio station and is always happy to talk with listeners off air.
