The process of buying land and building your dream home can sometimes seem like a daunting process. Don’t worry, you’re not alone. We’ve put together a list of some of the most frequently asked questions that will hopefully provide an answer to some common concerns. Feel free to get in touch with our agents if you have any other questions.
A small deposit secures your block. A contract is then forwarded to your solicitor (if you don’t have one we can recommend one). At the same time you can select a builder to prepare a tender/builders contract. The land is then exchanged and settled into your name and the building process starts with your builder.
It usually takes 8-10 weeks to obtain Council approval (your builder will do this for you) and approximately 6 months to build. Get in touch with Armidale Dumaresq Council for more information on Council approval.
There are many project builders that will build on your land. Check with the Office of Fair Trading first to see if they are licensed and then inspect their display homes. When you choose your home, ask the builder to prepare a written tender to build the home on your lot or you can select from our House and Land Packages.
