Here are all the important answers to your house and land packages questions. If you need further information please call our friendly team on (03) 5333 3881 or send us an email.
How do I confirm the purchase of a house and land package?
We will confirm the block availability and place it on hold. You then pay an initial $5,000 deposit, which goes toward your first progress payment.
How do the contracts work?
As part of the process you will sign two contractors, one for the home construction (with us) and one for the land (with the land developer). If you’re financing the purchase, your bank will treat the contract as one loan, combining the house and land together.
What happens once I’ve signed the contracts?
We organise the specific plans for your site, engineering drawings, 6-star energy rating assessment and select your internal and external colour selections (see the colour scheme options here).
Can we make plan changes or additions to the plan?
Yes, minor plan adjustments can be made prior to the preparation of your final contract sum, however, once this is completed no changes can occur.
What happens after the contract sum is finalised?
Once your contract amount is finalised, we prepare contracts for signing and you pay the balance of first payment (after the initial $5,000 deposit is deducted).
When do I make my progress payments?
An account for each progress payment will be sent to you and your nominated lender on completion of each stage, this includes 5% deposit, 10% slab, 15% frame, 35% lockup, 25% fitout and the remaining balance on completion.
How long will it take to build my home?
Generally, it takes 6 weeks to complete all the necessary planning and documentation and then building start. From there it takes 4 to 5 months depending on the size of the build. The start time is also subject to your land title being available.
What happens when your home is complete?
We organise the handover meeting with you, where we provide you with the keys to your new house, plus an instruction manual, which includes all the important information about your new home, including appliance guides. We also walk you through your home to show you to use everything.
Do I need to arrange the new connections?
When it gets close to handover date (typically, we confirm this date with you a few weeks in advance) we will provide you with a form to arrange the setup of new connections of electricity, gas and water. You may also wish to arrange for connection of telephone, internet or Foxtel services at this time.
Is there maintenance after completion?
Once you’ve settled in we organise a 6 months maintenance review at a convenient time. At this time, we can rectify or fix up any issues that may have occurred.
What structural warranty do you offer?
We offer a 10-year structural warranty on all our new homes.
