Can I sell my lot before I build?
The resale of a vacant lot prior to constructing a dwelling is not allowed at Westbrook. Permission to resell will only be provided if there are exceptional circumstances for the resale.
Can I conduct an inspection on my lot before settlement?
The Sales Team will let you know when you can inspect your lot, typically once titles are registered. Visiting of lots is strictly prohibited during the stage construction as all areas are only accessible to relevant construction contractors. These sites are under the management and control of civil contractors who are required by Law to have strict OH&S controls in place due to the ‘High Risk’ activities being performed on site. These activities include, but is not limited to, deep excavation and tunneling works, the use of large excavation equipment and trucks, so under no circumstances is access to site allowed by clients or by members of the public.
What is my responsibility once I have settled my lot?
Prior to you building your home, your lot must be regularly maintained, kept free of rubbish and overgrown vegetation to prevent others dumping material. Rubbish removal on titled lots will not be undertaken by the developer. The developer will monitor all lots to ensure regular maintenance of gardens/nature strips is undertaken by residents.
What happens when my survey pegs are missing from my settled lot?
Prior to settlement, survey pegs are installed by the developer on your lot, however any missing pegs after settlement are the responsibility of the lot owner and not the developer.
What is the time frame for constructing your home?
The construction of your home must commence within 12 months of settlement of your lot, and be complete within 24 months of the settlement of your lot.
Can I subdivide my lot?
The further subdivision of lots are allowed on specific stages in Westbrook. Please review the notice of restriction/MCP to determine if your lot can be further subdivided. The further subdivision is firstly subject to the approval of the Westbrook Design Panel, and then the approval/granting of a planning permit by Wyndham City Council.
Who is responsible for the cost of my fence?
