We are looking into a 497sqm land in schofields. We took the plot map to 3 builders. One of the builder told me there is 2m slope (three wavey topography lines drawn on the map marked 42, 42.5, 43 and there is no unit next to this figures, doea ot mean meters?) and this will cost addional 20-30k extra in the site cost. This was masterton homes.
Fowler and wisdom homes told us the slopes are not an issue because the depth of the building will only be buildinh within 1 m slope, so would not involve much extra in the site cost.
Now the strange part is, we checked the land and it was prety evened out block! We couldnt even noticed any slope, not even .25m on naked eye! I called the land agent and the lady had no idea on the sloped/ elevations. Is it possible for a block of land to look even, and being considered to have 2-3 m slopes in it!!!
I wish i could attach the photo of the plan/ map here so that you guys could help me understand!
