Settlement Stages

3. Book a Pre-Settlement Inspection


You will receive an email from us inviting you to book a pre-settlement inspection to review your property ahead of settlement.

We are proud of the home we are delivering and want to ensure you are, too. Don’t worry if you have never undertaken an inspection like this before, we will guide you through the process and ensure you are comfortable every step of the way.

Please be mindful that the area is still a construction site and no access is available without an authorized representative being in attendance. These appointments must be booked prior to site attendance.

We appreciate all buyers will be getting excited about making the move into their new home and/or taking ownership of their investment. At this stage it is important that new owners reserve pre-settlement appointments to undertake a focused review of the property with a Dennis Family Corporation representative for the purpose of a visual inspection of the final finishes.

We ask buyers to try and limit the number of attendees to these appointments to avoid detracting from the purpose of the inspection. However, we do appreciate you might have specific people you would like to attend.

You may elect to engage a third party to undertake this inspection for you. If you choose to do this, please provide the booking email or link to this page to your third-party company so they can make their booking.

Appointments are scheduled to take 45 minutes. Please arrive 10 minutes before your confirmed appointment time and wait at the recreation / pool area.

Please note that only persons listed on the appointment will be allowed onsite. For safety reasons, all attendees must be wearing closed in footwear. We will provide you with a high visibility vest which is to be worn throughout the appointment.

If you are experiencing any COVID systems or not feeling well you must re-schedule your appointment.
