How do I access user specified attributes, via python?

I have added a 'userModel' attribute to my basic instance placement.cga file

I have selected and generated buildings on my lots
They all contain placed 'instances'

I have selected a random lot and want to check what it is via python?

print ce.getAttribute(ce.selection()[0], '/ce/rule/userModel')

I get None returned, yet I can clearly see I have model instance placed in the Inspector.. and I can see the project path to it?

Are user Attributes not accessible in this manner?
