The Construction Lender will take a registered first mortgage over the Land to allow the Project to be completed. They rank ahead of any Interests issued by the Fund and will have the right to sell the Land should the loan fall into default.

Should the Project incur cost overruns, not be completed, and generally fall into disrepair, the Construction Lender will be entitled to sell the Land as mortgagee in possession to recover its debt. Should this occur some or all of funds invested under this Part 2 PDS may be lost.

The Project may fail to be completed on time and within budget. The builder appointed to the Project may default in which case a new builder will be required to complete the Project, incurring additional costs.

The Developer will undertake development of the Project and as such will be required to comply with a number of statutory authorities including council approvals and consents, taxation issues, building contracts, project managers, Construction Lenders and the like.

There is a risk that the end value of the townhouses may be less than current market value and the projected profits as shown in this Part 2 PDS may not be achieved in part or in full.

What happens if the funding goals are not met?

All monies raised will be returned to investors without any deductions or fees and with any bank interest if applicable.

What happens if plans dont get approved or dont come in within a certain period of time delaying the project substantially?

All monies raised will be returned to investors without any deductions or fees and with any bank interest if applicable.

What happens if Developer does not get a construction loan for the expected amount?

All monies raised will be returned to investors without any deductions or fees and with any bank interest if applicable.

What happens if the project makes less than 20% profit?

Investors will get their returns out first at the agreed upon rate of 20%. What remains (if anything) goes to investors.

Are investors taking on the project debt?

No, the debt is the responsibility of the Developer only. You as an investor have no more liability beyond your investment capital.

Who is the Builder?

Yet to be decided, a reputable builder will be appointed once planning permits come through.

Why is the Developer doing this? He is making only a small amount of money?

Top up capital in form of equity is usually expensive. Access to this capital makes the project possible and hence the Developer is doing this. Secondly although the valuation states 1.3M and 1.25M the Developer believes he will be able to sell at a much higher price in the overseas investor market. Anything beyond the investors 20% return goes to the Developer and he has confidence in the viability of the deal.

Is Estate Baron investing in the deal?

Estate Baron as a company is not investing in the deal as it is a technology platform service provider. However Estate Baron team members are investing in their private capacity and will be treated exactly the same as any other investor in the deal without any special preferences.

What is my security?

The SPV puts a caveat on the land on behalf of the investors. The investor nominated Directors can fire the Developer and take control of the Development in case of project running in trouble. The SPV has all Development rights to the project and can buy out the land at cost as per the terms of the agreement. Investors get paid out before the developer make any money.

Is the 20% rate annualized?

The 20% is for the duration of the project and is an absolute return. We expect the project to be completed in 12 to 18 months.

What happens if the project takes longer than 18 months?

The project is a very small 2 townhouse construction and should ideally take no more than 8 to 9 months. However every Development project has risks. In the PDS we have disclosed all possible risks we could envision. In case of delays, we have the right to fire the Developer and step in.

Is it possible that I could loose my money?

Yes. While we do significant due diligence and Estate Baron team members are investing in their personal capacity you should treat this similar to investing in the share market. The project could run into a loss in a worst case scenario. However you are not liable for any of the debt borne by the Developer.

Can I make more than 20% in the project?

If you are looking to invest a substantial amount (more than 250K) Estate Baron can consider rebating a portion of its fees in order to give you a larger return. Please get in touch if you are serious about a larger commitment. For any amounts smaller than that your returns will be fixed to 20%.

My account shows bonus credits? How do I get those?

You will be able to submit the bonus amount for rebates once you have invested in a particular project and the funding goals of the project are achieved. We will either give you a gift card for the amount or remit the amount to your bank account.

How will I be updated about the projects progress?

We will send you regular updates via email, including photos and videos.

Will I be able to participate in the Development actively?

No, your role is of a silent investor. While you can pose questions and concerns about the projects progress, you will not be playing a role in the management of the project.

Can I visit the site during Development?

May be, it depends upon whether the construction site is considered safe for your visit according to the project manager. Also if your visit interferes with the progress of the project then we will not be able to facilitate an entry within the site. You can however observe from a safe distance.

I am interested in buying the townhouses, what do I do?

Excellent, get in touch with us at You could save on stamp duty, sales commissions, and also save 20% by investing in this project.

Where can I see the feasibility of the project?

The feasibility and all the numbers are detailed in the PDS/Offer Document which can be accessed by expressing interest in the project using the blue button at the top of this page.

Can I get my money back earlier if I run into an emergency, before the project completes?

We cannot offer you liquidity before the project completes. However if you find a buyer for your units, we will help facilitate the transfer of your units. You should however in everybody's best interest plan your investment in such a manner that does not place you in duress. You should expect to stay invested for the duration of the project.

What are the Legal structures underlying this? What am I investing in?

You are investing a Registered Retail Managed Investment Scheme called The Guardian Investment fund whose scheme number is ARSN 168 048 057 set up by Guardian Securities Ltd (ACN 106 187 731) (‘Guardian’) which holds Australian Financial Services Licence (AFSL) No. 240506. Estate Baron is a Corporate Authorized Rep (no. 001239306) of Guardian and is authorized to provide general advise only in interests of the Guardian investment fund. The custodian is Australian Execution Trustees and they will hold shares in the SPV on behalf of the investors. You will get units for this class (Mount Waverley Development) in the Guardian investment fund which will acknowledge your investments.

Are there any fees associated with my investment?

The returns of 20% are net of all costs, which means there are no fees for you to invest in the project. For instance if you invest $2000 then your expected return would be $400 and you should be paid back $2000 + $400 = $2400 on completion of this project. You may have to pay taxes to the ATO as per your marginal rates and other personal circumstance.

Where does the money go?

Estate Baron never touches any of the funds raised. The money is held by the Custodian, Australian Execution Trustees on behalf of the investors. They will release the funds to the developer only for invoices for the project related work.

Has the Owner applied for FIRB approval for redevelopment purposes? The FIRB approval attached appears to only be for Principal Place of Residence.
