We heard back in a couple of days too, valuation came back 4k more than what we paid, so all good.

I agree regarding the comparison with Timbertop. I went there a few weeks ago and the prices had increased since last year but not as much as I thought.
When is…

That is crazy expensive, considering these blocks were sold at around 550$ per square meter or something like that.

I went through the same process before and I understand your frustration, just keep in mind that there are government agencies involved, and they have their own pace of doing…

One the statement of compliance is issued, then the developer lodged the plan to the titles office for registration. Once the titles are released (2-3 weeks), then we'll get a…

In my previous block at a different council I was able to pay the cil over the phone just fine.

Thanks I did that and they basically forwarded my call to the "sales agent" but then got a voicemail recording.

Thanks for the reply :)
How many blocks are there in the estate in total do you know?

We were interested in a block in this area but we drove by yesterday and there's no sales office, nothing there? I tried calling the number on their website and…

Not yet, we are getting the driveway built this week, so we will move in next week. :)

We're trying to arrange for our driveway to be built next week, but apparently our water taps in the front are exactly on the pathway in front of our door,…

BBQ sounds about right to me, let's do it as soon as we see some sunshine :)

We didn't afterall. We spoke to a few people but they didn't fill me with more confidence than our own builder's reports, so I skipped them.

Not really going through the contract, just a walkthrough around the house, making sure they haven't missed anything, and also that there's nothing they have to fix (there usually is…

We had our PCI last week as well, hoping to get keys end of next week.

Yeah our builder does not do landscaping or driveways so we had to get that sorted ourselves. Very easy though, just through email.

I think we got something like 5,5k for the exposed aggregate, but that's for the whole front side , not just the driveway, we're doing a bit of a design…

Oh sorry, in terms of the driveway, you need to send your design to the design assessment panel of somerfield (dap@somerfield.com.au) to get it approved. For the driveway…

That's great, congrats! Our pci is in two weeks. Everything's gone really well.
Regarding opticomm, have you done anything yet, like looking for one of their providers etc?

How's everybody's build going? We should be starting the final stage this week or the next, so not too long now. :)

1 year1 yeararagornaragorn posted:

Yeah, but you probably need that anyway right? Otherwise you need to install an antenna for your TV etc, which I assume will also cost money.

Some of them have a month by month plan, so we could try those, and if its not good we just stop them. Better than going into a 2 year…
