HOUSE AND LAND SETTLEMENT GUIDE

Welcome to the Arli family

HOUSE AND LAND PROCESS

Congratulations on buying your new home

You’ve done it! Your new home and lifestyle are almost a reality after years of saving and dreaming. We’re so happy for you and can’t wait to hand over the keys.
To help you prepare for settlement, please review this useful guide. If you have any questions along the way, we’re here to help.
What to expect
At Arli Homes, we want your settlement experience to be smooth and enjoyable. That’s why you’ll have a dedicated Client Services Coordinator who will be your main point of contact throughout your Arli journey.
Here’s what to expect from us and what you need to do before moving into your brand-new Arli Home.

Finance

We’ll remind you to arrange your finance around the time your home’s frame is built.

If you haven’t already, you must apply for a formal loan approval at least three months before settlement. This will ensure you have enough funds to pay the balance at completion.

7

Valuation

If you’re getting a loan, your lender will want to do a valuation. A member of our team will accompany the valuer on site. This inspection is conducted approximately 4 weeks before settlement or on practical completion.

You’ll provide our details to your finance broker or lender to arrange a valuation inspection.

8

Final inspection

Before settlement, we’ll invite you to inspect your new home to ensure everything is in order.

Attend the grand tour of your new home and learn how everything works.

9

Settlement preparation

Our solicitors will notify your legal representative when your home is complete and ready for settlement. The settlement date will be 14 days after you receive the notice that a certificate of occupancy has been issued for the property.

Your legal representative will finalise the documents needed by us, you and your bank or broker. They will also confirm the final payment amount and the settlement date with you.

10

Settlement

We complete any final touch ups then settlement takes place. 

The final payment takes place, and you take ownership of your new home. Your bank or legal representative (if no bank) takes the title on your behalf.

11

Handover

Once settlement is completed, we will meet you to handover your keys and settlement pack, generally the afternoon of the booked settlement date.

It’s time to move in and enjoy your new Arli home.

12

Maintenance

Once you move into your new home, items may appear requiring our attention. Our Home Concierge team will inspect and address warranty items after the first 90 days is up.

You’ll get a 90-day Defect Rectification Form in your handover pack. Keep a list of items you want us to investigate.
