Settlement coming

We just got notified that the developer has lodged a Statement of Compliance with the Land Titles Office, which apparently means that the Plan of Subdivision (and then settlement) is coming very soon! Our solicitor says it's likely to happen in the week beginning 14th December.

Things will be a bit tricky as we still don't have final signed bank documents, and my dad (who needs to sign them) is leaving the country at the end of this week.. everything else is looking good though. I'm able to transfer money for settlement at a moment's notice, thanks to internet banking, and the account the money needs to be in is all set up.

New Riva displays

I just noticed that there are some new Riva display homes, including one just next to us in stage 11 of Renaissance Rise! That makes two in the Mernda area now and five in Victoria altogether, compared to two in total back in August. It's nice to know the design is popular enough to make so many displays.

We are still waiting on the bank to give us documents with POA stamps in the right spot .. and waiting on our land to be officially ready to build on. It's frustrating having nothing to do but wait :)

We have crossover and fill!

My parents went down to our block of land on cup day, and it looks like our block has been filled and the crossover is there!

The photograph above is taken from the back of our property. The crossover on the right (in front of the truck) looks like ours.

And this picture is looking over our crossover, with my dad on the left :) The houses across the road are in stage 11, ours is stage 12.

We also have photos of the rest of the property but there's not much to see apart from dirt. Dirt with a slight gradient from the back to the front of the property, as the fall plan specifies.
