Sewers are the first service to be laid as they require the deepest trenches, which can range from 3 to 6 metres deep. The sewer system will carry waste away from your house to a treatment facility.
This stage of works will ensure your home's roof and underground plumbing have the appropriate connection points to carry all the stormwater to the council drains. Concrete pipes for stormwater then need to be laid in order to drain any excess rainwater.
Pressure mains then provide drinking water to all houses. Gas pipelines are also installed to service your land lot.
To build roads, excavation is required to establish a solid base, on top of which, different classes of crushed rock are layered. Finally, kerb and channel are laid on the road profile.
Electrical and communication conduits are placed in nature strips. These services will allow your house to be connected to electricity, internet (NBN) and telephone line. Light poles are also set up to provide lighting for the street.
Concrete is a versatile material. Once mixed, poured and leveled, it will contribute to many of the final finishes of the community. Think smooth driveways your car will effortlessly roll out of, level footpaths you’ll wander along, guttering along the roads you’ll drive down.
The final step to completing your lot involves placing top soil on the lots to ensure it is neat and tidy. The nature strips are then seeded or turfed and street trees are planted to beautify your neighbourhood. Finally, street signs are installed, roads are line-marked and lots are pegged.

In preparation for settlement, it’s important that you consult with your bank or financial lender to obtain formal approval, and legal representation to confirm that all your documentation is in order.
Note: Timing is critical. Formal finance approvals are valid for 3 months before settlement. Due to COVID-19 the banks are experiencing delays of 2-4 weeks in processing finance, so it’s important to talk to your lender about timings.
If required, your financial lender can arrange a valuation appointment with us. You will be notified once access for valuations can be granted.
Note: Due to current COVID-19 situation your chosen lender may value the property remotely and/or as per API Valuation protocols.
Local Council including relevant authorities provide their consent in the form of a Statement of Compliance certifying that your lot was completed to highest standards of construction and meets the approved plan. It also confirms service authorities will take control of assets such as water and gas mains.
Once completed and signed off, the Plan of Subdivision will be lodged with the Land Titles Office for registration. Usually titles are issued within 5 – 10 business days, but it can take up to 4 weeks in some cases depending on the size and complexity of the plan. Once titles are received, a formal notice is issued to your legal representative and the settlement due date is set.
At an agreed upon date and time, you will pay the balance of the purchase price and receive the title for your property. If you are settling via a loan you will need to have unconditional approval from your lender and have signed a final loan contract with enough time for the bank to be ready for settlement on the due date.
Congratulations! The land is now yours. All plans and design guidelines will be available digitally from the myProsperity portal, in My Property > Documents.
