Why First Home Buyers Love North Harbour’s House and Land Packages!

House and Land Packages

We appreciate that the prospect of buying a house “off the plan” can be daunting, particularly if you haven’t purchased a house and land package before so below is an idea of the timeline to expect and some tips to consider before buying property, particularly if this your first home.

House and Land Packages

The ideal timeline is as follows:

Step 1: Visit the North Harbour Sales & Information Centre and review our available land for purchase. Once you have chosen your block (on its own or as part of a house and land package) we will hold it for 48 hours without deposit. After two days we will call you to confirm that you wish to proceed.  If you want to go ahead, we will ask you for some further details (full names of buyers and your solicitor) to enable us to prepare the contract.  An appointment is made to sign the offer to purchase in the following week when all parties are available. After the buyer/s have completed the offer to purchase, it is then signed by the Developer (us) and sent to our solicitor.  At this point the $5,000 deposit is payable.

Things to note in Step 1: North Harbour as the developer sells the land (block). Once you have chosen your block you then need to choose the style of house you would like to put on there – you can do this by choosing one of our pre-approved house packages and building with one of our Display Village builders such as Sunvista who are showcased below, or you are free to choose a different builder. BUT any home you choose must adhere to the North Harbour design guidelines and must be suitable for your block. Double-check what you can and can’t have on the block you choose.

House packages come with a variety of inclusions from basic requirements up to marble benchtops and top of the range cookers. Each builder offers a range of different packages to suit a range of needs and budgets.

Step 2: The purchaser has 28 days to secure finance. You will need to speak to a mortgage advisor or your chosen bank to secure finance. If finance is declined, the $5,000 deposit is fully refundable. $5,000 is held in Trust with our solicitor until settlement – which will occur 28 days after registration of titles.

Step 3: Registration normally takes place 1 – 3 months after the release of a new stage Registration can be delayed due to inclement weather affecting the civil works and is also subject to council approval timelines.  Once plan sealing is through council, it can then go to titles office to register.  Once registered, we will call the buyer to inform them of registration and they will also receive notification from their solicitor and a settlement date.

Things to note in step 3: This step is outside the control of the developer as it is subject to council approval timelines. It can be subject to delays – we do our best to mitigate any delays, but it is not always possible.

Step 4: Once settled, your builder can start building your new home. Things to remember: Contact Opticomm to get your broadband set up so you can join North Harbour’s fibre optic network and get access to Australia’s Fastest Broadband, your builder will organise for your gas to be connected to our reticulated gas system.
