Misleading Advertisement for Riverpoint Apartment
The apartment a 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom apartment, which has an internal size of 66sqm. This is very small for a 2 bedroom apartment. The second bedroom is not large enough for a queen bed and has no windows and has a sliding door because the room is too small to have a normal swinging door. The kitchen comprises benches along the wall.
This is the advertisement. Some text: "On Offer in Stage 1 of The Riverpoint Development is An Affordable Lifestyle Apartment On The First Floor, 94m2 of total Area, with 2 Large Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom & Upgraded Finishes." Two large bedrooms, who is this agent kidding?
But the real issue is the drawing included, as shown above.
The floorplan shows a tiny bathroom with a shower only. However, the drawing included in the advertisement shows a large bathroom with a bath and a shower.
When this was brought to the attention of the agent, Michael Mangelakis, of Street Property Sales, he replied in an email
