Thank you! I've emailed our bank contact to push this forward.
My Broker said "we cant get any approval, unconditional or otherwise without DA approved plans and a contract. My…

Thank you so much for sharing your experience. We were given a formal indication but no actual pre approval as we hadn't selected our builder. Difficult to do with a…

Thanks very much. I think I might just speak with the bank directly and bypass the broker given I have to arrange the construction loan with my current lender regardless.

Hi everyone,
I have recently submitted to council our plans for a custom build in south west Sydney. We have narrowed our builder choices down to three, having received estimates…

You have to pay. Either the builder will charge you or you have to pay it yourself during the DA process. One way or another, cost falls on you.

How is everyone going with stage 3.1?
I'm submitting our plans to council in the next few weeks. Just got the Basix component back so almost there.

I am so sorry to hear this. What in the actual f. Can you try to do land only so you don't lose the land and the deposit?

How is everyone travelling? Hoping you've found or are close to meeting a resolution.

Here are some suggestions that I…

Hi Guys,
We were unconditionally approved 3 weeks ago, but we were almost delayed with our settlement due to an error by our lender. Thankfully we got everything through on time…

The call you received 3 days was notifying that registration was lodged with Land Registry Services (not council). If your solicitor said council, they are mistaken. Dahua group wouldve sent…

I haven't heard anything from my solicitor, but I spoke to the sales team at Bardia and they advised registration on stage 3.1 isnt going to be before June.

It actually depends on the type of stone/brand you've selected. Some brands like ceaserstone and Cosentino have some in their range that come in larger slabs. E.g I have…

Congrats! So glad that all worked out for you. We looked at doing the same also, but the lots available all had so many restrictions on them with a large…

Correct, so if your lot is undervalued by 30k, bringing it's worth to 430k and not the 460k you paid, the bank will require you to either produce the additional…

Hey Neighbour,
If your land is undervalued and you don't have the savings to make up for the loss, the bank may not give you a loan unless you can come…

One of the planners told me likely to be June registration, not March as we anticipated. Which makes our concern much worse as prices are set to drop even further…
