Thank you for your interest in Woodlea.
Can I sell my block before I build?
No. Sales boards are strictly prohibited. Resale of a lot prior to constructing a dwelling is prohibited by Woodlea.
Permission to resell will only be provided if there are exceptional circumstances for the resale (i.e. financial hardship) which can be clearly demonstrated by the purchaser.
All purchasers are aware of this restriction at the time of purchase and this restriction is intended to prevent investors speculating on the land and on-selling without making a contribution towards the growth of the Woodlea community.
What is my responsibility once I have settled my block?
To ensure it is regularly maintained, free of rubbish, debris and overgrown vegetation and secured to ensure others do not dump material. The developer will regulate presentation of vacant lots and completed lots to ensure regular maintenance of gardens/nature strips is undertaken by residents.
How will I find out when my block is titled and ready to settle?
Your legal representative will inform you of the proposed settlement date when they are notified by Woodlea’s legal representative, Maddocks Lawyers. The Woodlea Sales Team will also notify you directly once titles have registered.
Do I need to have legal representation to settle on my block?
It is strongly recommended that you engage the services of a conveyancer or lawyer who specialise in the legal requirements carried out during the settlement process.
Why does the timeframe for settlement sometimes get extended?
There are many parties involved in the process for getting all the approvals required. There are relevant authorities such as water/sewer, power and NBN Co, the Council’s team and Woodlea’s own consultants.
Woodlea’s development team works diligently to ensure the forecast timeframes are achieved but sometimes things occur that are out of our control. Purchasers will be communicated with regularly regarding the progress of construction and forecast title registration.
Can I delay settlement?
You can request a delay in settlement and if it is granted you will be required to pay a fee of $500 plus penalty interest (15.5%). This means that for every day that you cannot settle, it will cost you more.
If an extension request is granted and settlement does not occur within 10 business days of the original due date, Woodlea will proceed to issue rescission notices.
Do I have to attend settlement in person?
No, you do not have to attend settlement. Your legal representative will undertake all tasks needed to ensure the settlement process is carried out successfully.
What are my responsibilities during the settlement process?
It is your responsibility to make sure you are in a position to settle on time. This entails contacting your bank or mortgage broker to ensure that the funds will be available at least 24 hours prior to the advised settlement timeframe.
In addition, it is recommended to conduct a site inspection of your block to ensure any rubbish has been removed and that survey pegs, which define the boundaries of your block, are all in place.
Can I conduct an inspection of my block before settlement?
Yes, we encourage you to do a site inspection. The Woodlea Sales Team will let you know when you can inspect your block, typically once titles are registered.
Valuers, for finance, can also access site typically 4 weeks prior to title release.
