Building A New House
Nov 16, 2020 6:40 pm
Apologies if this kind of topic has already been posted but after quite a few searches around the forum I could not find informations that were pointing me to the right direction(s). I am a newbie and I am sure that I could benefit of a lot of valuable informations and experiences from the different members of this forum.
To give some background, I am currently looking at a volume builder MOJO for a knock down and rebuild , I would like to build the LIDO 28 as my land is quite narrow (slightly over 12m) but quite long (40 m) . There are not too many options for a narrow land, so the LIDO 28 is one of the rare project home that could fit. I fall under the cumberland council (former Auburn).
I have downloaded the "DA checklist for Minor Residential Development" from the cumberland council website, it looks like a document difficult to digest ( i have only skimmed through it) but my understanding is that the builder will cover majority of the checklist.
I have spoken quite the MOJO sales rep and he gave me a proposal, they have sent someone to do a very quick site inspection before drafting the proposal. I have taken time to review it and will ask some modifications of the plan before I sign.
My question is : what do I need to look for before I sign this proposal ?
