So we are waiting for our land to be released. Our roads were done last week and the lights are in. How long did you wait until land was ready for settlement. We have done everything with henley so are very anxious for our land to be released.

Hate to be the bearer of bad news but land settlement often takes a while; council requirements, titles office delays etc. Just seeing as a block of land "looks" ready to go is by no means an indication of its actual readiness. You should have been given and estimated time of release when you purchased the block and I would add a few months to that. If in doubt you can always contact your local council or the developer to see where they are up to.

We had roads and lights in three months before the land settled.

If you were told a month ago they were on track for mid July, I would say they probably still are. Things happened pretty quickly for us- once our land looked 'ready' we were settling within a couple of weeks.

Probably depends on a few things including how many are already sold as I understand developers have to pay their contributions to govts on registration.
Our place is in a small development of 25 blocks on one street. The street, lights etc have been up and running for months. The first 13 blocks are registered, the next twelve were meant to be ready by end of June but now we're being told another 6 weeks.

In contrast, I settled on my land before roads were finished, and street lights and services weren't even completed.
I've now been settled on the land for over a month, but the developer isn't expecting practical completion and access to the land for another week.
Has me baffled to how that works, but it's obviously possible.
