Now that you have purchased land or a house and land package at The Surrounds, we encourage you to engage a legal representative who can provide information on the next steps and the settlement process. If you require further information about the settlement process and choosing a legal representative, please contact The Surrounds Sales & Information Centre.
Villawood Properties works closely with Australia’s best builders to help deliver innovative solutions for our home buyers. As The Surrounds is home to the largest Designer Display Village on the Gold Coast, we encourage you to take a walk through and visit one of the onsite builders.
All the land at The Surrounds is sold off the plan, which means that you can secure your lot before the lot is built and serviced. Settlement of your land is 14 days after registration of the stage in which your lot is located. The Surrounds Sales & Information Centre will be able to give approximate dates of title registration. If you have purchased a homesite which is already registered, the settlement terms will be as per your contract of sale.
Each lot at The Surrounds has been tidied by Villawood Properties’ Maintenance Team prior to settlement. It is the land owner’s responsibility to keep their own lot neat and tidy prior to and during the construction of your home. It is also your responsibility to keep your homesite clear of excessive weeds and rubbish.
To ensure a quality residential environment and a cohesive finish for The Surrounds, Villawood Properties has developed a series of design covenants for the homes within this community. All homes at The Surrounds must comply with the design covenants which will be managed by The Surrounds Design Panel (TSDP). The TSDP must approve plans in writing prior to the commencement of home construction. Refer to the Design Covenants for further information, which can also be found in your contract of sale.
Each lot at the Surrounds has been surveyed and lot pegs have been installed prior to settlement. Survey pegs can be identified by looking for a white timber stake 50mm by 50mm in each corner of your lot. These pegs will protrude out of the ground by approximately 2-3cm. If you have a question regarding your survey pegs, please contact The Surrounds Sales and Information Centre.
During the construction of your home, it is important to ensure that your building site is kept neat and tidy for you, your builders and The Surrounds community. Key items to keep an eye on when you are building include:
