What is Contract Works Insurance?

On each new job, Coastal Homes applies for contract works insurance policy which covers the company risk and public liability insurance cover for the duration of the build period.  Once we hand the home over to you, that insurance will lapse and your private home insurance will take over. 

 

Once I pay the agreement to proceed to working drawings, when can I expect my drawings to be finalised and lodged with Council?

We will start to complete the detailed drawings, collect the site specific data and make final checks of all the paperwork so we can submit the Building Consent Application.  We estimate this will take between 4-5 weeks. 

 

What is a PC Sum?

A price cumulative sum is an amount of money that is recorded in your Building Agreement where we do not yet know the final cost, for example your kitchen.  Once your choices have been finalised and a price confirmed you will receive either a credit back or an invoice for the difference.

 

What is a soil report?

A soil report is necessary to determine what ground conditions are like below ground where your house will be. The report will determine whether additional support is required within the footings should substandard soil be encountered. A soil with a low bearing capacity will cost more to build on than one with good soil and other options regarding building may need to be considered.

 

When will we get Code of Compliance?

At the end of build process, we will issue a practical completion certificate and will obtain code of compliance from Council.
