Ahh we are so naughty! We can't make up our minds!!
We were initially really keen on this property, then we were worried because of the 'slope' and potential site costs and were not so keen, now after looking everywhere for a similar location and a similar size land for the same price we are again coming back to this property!!
I just wanted to bring up this topic again to ask for a bit more help
Vpande - I checked out the location of the nearest powerpole on our side of the street - it is atleast 10 houses away, so the closest would be the one across the street...so I'm guessing I'd probably have to get an underground pit??
I'm thinking of either getting an independent soil test/site survey or asking M if someone would come out and have a look and give a rough estimate before we purchase the block so they can consider things like ; powerpoles, neighbours, access to site etc.
Has anyone done something similiar and how did it go?

I think you should ring up 'Alinta' the company dealing with underground powerpits and ask what they will do in this case. most new home builders want the underground pits organised beforehand (not sure whether its for the looks or to avoid interferences with the cranes)
good luck. hope it works out in your favour.
