Time for a reality check
We bought a one bedroom Ralan unit in Killara in early 2014 which was built in 2013. It is a good unit and the price was very fair. If you expect "perfection" you pay an extra 100K. We had a building report done before purchasing.
Having said that, there are quite a few problems with carpark drainage etc which are very slowly being sorted out. But, I'm not convinced that most new blocks don't have some structural problems.

Questions & Answers
I am looking to buy an apartment in 27-33 Boundary Street, Roseville. Anyone have any feedback?
It looks like The Ralan Group went into voluntary administration :/
Anyone here able to offer some feedback WRT that building?
Has Ralan gone bust? Activity on 545 Pacific Highway has suddenly stopped
Not too sure, hope for anyone who has money invested with them that they haven't.
But easy way out of claims for them
I am looking at buying a Ralan built unit in Eulbertie street Warrawee. How do I know that the comments made with respect to the properties in Killara and Roseville do not apply here?
To be fair honestly you don't know. It's just a chance if you are willing to take.
If I was to be subjective, it's too big of a purchase to risk giving their reputation. Now that I know the nature of this developer and the business ethics of the people I would not recommend anyone to buy from them.
It's your call tho.
Yes their building in warrawee may be of better build quality but you just don't know until you move in and find out. If I were you I'd try and source a mirvac building or a building from a smaller developer with a higher build quality
Without going into too much detail, I have extensive experience with Ralan apartments. My recommendation is that you stay well away from anything built by them regardless of the suburb, as the same builder is used for each project. You will be setting yourself up for significant ongoing cost through special levies and repairs within the unit itself. Stay away.
