What happens after the contract is signed? When does construction start?

After your construction contract is signed, there will be a period of time allocated for your mortgage lender to approve and finalise your finance application, which your build contract will be used for.

Once finance is approved, a lot of background work is done by Grady Homes to have full construction plans drafted and approved by necessary officials.

After all of the finance and building approvals are in place, and your internal and external fittings and fixture selections are finalised, you will have a meeting with your construction administrator to confirm you are happy for Grady Homes to start building your beautiful new home!

We can only start building on your block of land if finance has settled and the land is registered (if in a new estate).

Together, the length of time these processes take can vary significantly, but unless you have requested a later start date, usually building commences within 2 months of your signing the build contract. Your estimated construction start date will be documented in your contract and discussed with you. Should there be any variation outside of this time frame due to unforeseen circumstances you will be notified as soon as possible.
