Nightcap Community Questionnaire is published by Nightcap on Minjungbal promotor Samantha Bachman on her website. It's part of an application for a residential lot with Nightcap on Minjungbal "Community" at Mt Burrell, NSW.
The developers are not named.
Prospective investors are informed that the minimum deposit is $100,000 and "vendor finance" is available to a select few, subject to approval by the anonymous "development team".
Nightcap Community Questionnaire
The first question is:
"Names of you and your family members that would like to live on the land?"
Applicants may presume that a question regarding their desire to build a home on the land implies that permanent residence is a legally permissible and immediate possibility.
A disingenuous footnote to the Nightcap Community Questionnaire advises prospective investors to do due diligence, but does not warn that multiple occupancy is not a permitted use of the land, that DA applications have been refused three times, and that no development approval is currently in place.
Hopeful investors are not informed that fulfilment of the marketing representations is subject to approval of Nightcap's prospective land-share concept by Tweed Shire Council or regional authorities, through a process that normally takes several years to complete.
The developers do not warn of risk over contested ownership of property they advertise. Nor do they inform that during 2014-2017, in response to similar marketing representations, 23 families were "approved" and invited to "live on the land" in exchange for receipt of over $2.5 million in trust funds, loans and other equity.
Unfortunately these investors lost life savings, but hey, Nightcap promotors don't care about that. The anonymous development team has published a disclaimer... and they are aggressively pursuing SLAPP actions to protect their revenue stream by imposing an unconstitutional gag on aggrieved creditors and outspoken critics clamouring for justice.
Litigation and threats of litigation effectively muzzle many creditors who silently fear retaliation if they should dare object to having been fleeced. Most of this blog was recently removed due to such intimidation, but the posts have now been restored by Admin.
Nightcap Promotion Published by Samantha Bachman
Samantha Bachman, the manager of Earth-Haven Display Villages, is also threatening the publishers of Nightcap Nightmare Blog with legal action. She promotes Nightcap on Minjungbal's "Land and Tiny Home" offer online without disclosing that multiple occupancy and land-sharing are currently not permitted use of the offered land.
