Hi Guys,
How are things going on?
The NBN charge is around $500 for a single story build and close to $750 for a double story.

How good is that!!
I guess, it's a good bet to buy/build in any established suburb. Besides Enfield/clearview are both under 10 km from CBD and close to main public…

Hi Rajan,
Speak to one of the fairmont's selection consultant at Pickards . Ask her what choices would you need to make during selections. She will guide you from there. Hope…

Hi Tina & Rajan,
following on from Rajan's earlier post about Termite treatment being included in the contract, I assume that will only be for the footings. We had to pay…

Hi Rajan,
Welcome to the forum.
Our soil was classified as H2 (P), and thus the footing were designed by the engineer and will be deeper than normal.

Recieved another "Construction update " letter from Fairland. Apparently the final plan has been deposited in the land titles office. They have asked us to contact our conveyancer to organize…

We recieved our final plans and selections pack yesterday. Surprisingly it still mentions footings allowance instead if a fixed price.
Also finance for the land is just a signature away.
