This allows us to complete full working drawings in detail, engineer your house plans, collate site information such as surveys,  engineers site reports, energy efficiency, BAL and Coastal requirements. Once this stage is complete, your building quote will be finalised and will reflect any adjustments where necessary in relation to the above.

Need finance?

If you already arranged finance, great! Many however, don’t realise that there are frequent regulatory government changes which can often affect finance approval. Before beginning, it is always worth checking the latest rules with your financial advisor, lending institution or mortgage broker before discovering that what you thought was possible in the past may not be possible now.

Trusting your biggest financial decision with anyone can cause unforeseen delays, can be very stressful and can lead to you failing to get the finance you thought you’d be able to get. It doesn’t have to be this way!
