Design Guidelines

To establish and maintain the quality of the Newhaven community, Design Guidelines have been developed to assist purchasers in designing and building their homes to a high standard, maximising the value of their investment and enhancing the quality of the community as a whole.

Before building, homebuyers must submit their house plans to Peet for approval. This can be done at any time after the contract of sale has been signed.

Bonus solar panel offer

Solar panels can significantly reduce your electricity bills and protect against rising energy cost. Plus, at the same time, you’ll be doing your little bit to help the environment.

This offer includes a 3kW solar energy system including a solar inverter, plus installation and warranties, up to the value of $3,500*.
 
Inverters convert the direct current from the sun into electricity that can be used for your home, reducing the average electricity bill for your household. 

A typical Australian household consumes around 18 kilowatt hours (kWh) per day, so a 3kW system reduces the average electricity bill by up to 60%. Note these figures are based on the Clean Energy Council (CEC) guidelines and may not represent the actual saving for individual homes.

5 Steps to buying land

1. Make an offer

With your home research done and finances sorted you’ll be ready to write up an offer or contract of sale.

2. Pay a deposit

Immediately after the exchange of contract, you will be required to pay a deposit.

3. Exchange the contract

When both you and the seller are happy with conditions and the purchase price, both parties sign the contract of sale.

4. Get sorted in pre-settlement

A settlement agent or solicitor can help with this and handle the paperwork involved in purchasing your new home. They will also work with you and/or your lender or mortgage broker to ensure any loan arrangements are documented.

5. Time to settle

It’s official! Once titles are issued and your contract conditions are met, settlement takes place. At settlement, the balance of the purchase price is handed over to the seller and your representative will ensure documents are registered so the title reflects the change of land ownership.
