We are pleased to advise you that your apartment will be ready for a bank valuation inspection from the 13th July.

If you require finance to settle your apartment your lender may require a bank valuation inspection to be carried out in order to complete the loan application.

Valuers must contact Tom Hawkins on 0493 072 953 or email tom@settlement-solutions.com.au to make an appointment.

It is important that your finance application is well underway if required in order to complete the process in time for anticipated settlement in early August. If you have not already started your finance process, you must contact your finance broker or lender immediately. 

JUNE UPDATE

Construction is progressing well, and works have not been disrupted by the current lockdown.  

In the apartments, kitchens have now been fitted & tiling is complete. Flooring up to level 5 has now also been installed. Externally, the scaffolding has been removed and the public realm works are now underway. Photos of the building without scaffolding have been added below. 

We recommend that all purchasers begin to narrow down their options for financing their settlement. Valuations are expected to be begin in the coming weeks. Once a commencement date has been confirmed for valuations, we will be in contact with booking information.

SETTLEMENT UPDATE

Welcome to the first of our settlement updates. 

Construction is progressing well and kitchens & bathrooms are currently being installed in apartments throughout the building.

Externally, the cladding installation is almost complete with scaffolding to be removed soon. Works on the ground floor lobby & shopfront will begin shortly with Jewell Station restoration works to follow shortly after.  

We are now in the Consider Finance Options stage of the settlement journey. As settlement is anticipated for August we recommend that purchasers begin to narrow down their options for financing their settlement. Tom & Katrina will be in touch in the coming week to introduce ourselves and we are happy to point you in the right direction should you need any assistance. 

In the meantime please feel free to check-out our Settlement Journey Stages, Settlement Resources & Settlement FAQ.

SETTLEMENT JOURNEY STAGES

CONSIDER FINANCE OPTIONS

At about 3-4 months before settlement you should start to narrow down what financial options you have to settle.

Will you settle by cash, get a home loan, or maybe a combination?

Should you choose to finance with a loan, we recommend you appoint a broker to assist you with your applications.

VALUATIONS
BEGIN

We'll let you know once your apartment is ready bank valuations will be available, usually there are required as part of your loan application.

For purchasers bringing money into Australia, make sure you have set up an Australian bank account and begin transferring your money.

PURCHASER INSPECTIONS

At this point construction on your new home is almost complete. We will send you an invite to conduct your pre-settlement inspection.

Any defects picked up in your inspection, will be noted and passed to the builder to begin addressing.

PRE-SETTLEMENT PERIOD

Once your inspection is complete the next stage is to wait for the Occupancy Permit and Titles to be issued so settlement can be called.

Your finance, either cash transfer or Bank loan, should be finalised and ready for settlement.

During this time the builder will continue to address any defects where possible.

SETTLEMENT
DAY

Once settlement is called your conveyancer will assist you in preparing for your settlement.

Make sure your loan has been finalised and your cash is ready.

Once your settlement is complete the keys to your new home will be available to collect.
