11. Frequently Asked Questions

If I previously bought an apartment with another individual, who is eligible for the Rewards?
If you purchased a Crown Group apartment in conjunction with other person(s), all the persons appearing on the contract for the previous purchase may be eligible for the Rewards.

For the Referral Rewards Program, each entity named on the contract as the purchaser on the contract for the previous purchase may be eligible to participate in the Referral Rewards Program.
For the Repeat Purchase Rewards Program, only those entities named as both:
(a) the purchaser on the contract for the sale of the apartment; and
(b) the repeat purchaser, whether directly or as a Nominee, on the contract for the sale of the Crown Group project,
may be eligible to participate in the Repeat Purchase Rewards Program.

If the purchaser of a Crown Group apartment was a company, who is entitled to the Rewards?
For the Referral Rewards Program, if a company is a participant in the Referral Rewards Program, one Nominee of the company is entitled to the Rewards once the referred purchase reaches the stage of exchange of contracts.

For the Repeat Purchase Rewards Program, if a repeat purchase occurs by a company (or by a designated Nominee), it is the company itself, or one Nominee of the company, that is entitled to participate in the Repeat Purchase Rewards Program. In the circumstance where a Nominee is designated, a Nominee Form must be duly completed.

In what name may a purchase be made?
For the purposes of the Referral Rewards Program, a purchase may only be made in the name of the person referred to the Crown Group by the Referral Rewards Program participant. For the purposes of the Repeat Purchaser Rewards Program, a Crown Group purchase may be made solely in the name of Referral Rewards Program participant.
