Your Covenant Application will now be lodged with your developer for approval. If covenant approval is required before Council lodgement, we must wait for this approval to proceed to the next step. Please Note: Covenant approval can take from 1-4 weeks depending on the developer.
The Full Council Lodgement will be sent to our Private Certifiers within 1-2 weeks of the contract signing (if we have all required information) and upon receipt of your 5% payment (if self-funding).
Once lodged, the Full Building Approval can take approximately 4-8 weeks to be approved. This timeframe depends on a variety of factors including the Council regulations in your area and the complexity of the submission.
Post Contract Variations
While the Council Approval process is under way, our Estimating Department will work on your Post Contract Variation. This document will include all colour upgrades you selected at your Colour Selection appointment and any additional requirements you nominated at your Contract Appointment. This process takes approximately 3 weeks from the date you sign off on your Colour Selection. However, please appreciate this timeframe can fluctuate depending on supplier quotes and responses, as well as the nature of your requests.
When you receive your Post Contract Variation please check through it carefully and if you have any questions or changes, please advise your Administrator.
Once the Post Contract Variation is complete and correct, please sign and return a copy to us. Signing the document confirms your acceptance of the variations to the Contract.
When we receive the signed Post Contract Variation, a quality check will be completed by our Cosham Studios team. This ensures that all of our paperwork aligns.
From here, our Drafting team will complete the Final Drawings which incorporate all of the details of your Authorised Tender, Post Contract Variation/s and Colour Selection. This process takes approximately 2 weeks.
The completed Final Drawings will then be emailed to you for a thorough review and your final approval. Once again, signing these documents confirms your acceptance of these plans, which will be used for the construction of your new home.
Your Home Consulting will send through your finalised electrical plan and relevant costs from which we will create the Electrical Variation. This will be sent to you for approval.
If retaining by owner has been nominated on your site plan, please contact your Customer Service Administrator prior to commencing the installation of your retaining wall.
