What happens after you sign your contract

Oct 27, 2021

If you’re a little unfamiliar with the process of buying off-the-plan, we’ve outlined exactly what you can expect from the moment you sign on the dotted line to the day you get to move in and enjoy an apartment that is entirely yours.

You’ve selected your perfect floorplan, decided on your colour scheme and signed on the dotted line. Congratulations! So, what happens between now and the day we hand over your shiny new keys?

Enjoy our step-by-step guide to what happens between signing your contract of sale and your much-anticipated move in day.

You’ll be kept up to date on construction

We'll provide you with regular updates of the building's construction progress, so you can watch as your new home comes to life.

You’ll see everything from the moment the slab is poured to the erection of the framework, followed by our top-tier construction partners starting to fit your apartment with high-quality timber flooring, designer finishes and premium appliances.

You’ll have plenty of time to finalise your finance

When you purchase an apartment off-the-plan you’ll have extra time to finalise your finance, as it’s only the initial deposit that you’ll pay upfront. This means you’ll have more time up your sleeve to save along with exploring your options when it comes to banks and lenders.

If you’re considering a home loan, you’ll need to start preparing your loan approval within three months of your settlement date. The team will contact you ahead of time, to notify you to get your loan sorted.

Smooth sailing into settlement

When construction is nearing completion, it’s almost time for settlement – another step closer to move-in day. We’ll invite you back in to explore your completed apartment for your pre-settlement inspection. This is simply to ensure your apartment is as you expect it to be, and it will give you an opportunity to inspect the quality of the finished product. We work with the best quality builders and tradespeople in the industry, so we can guarantee your apartment is built to an incredibly high standard.

If you’ve arranged a home loan, your valuation will occur around this time too, however you won’t need to be there on the day. We’ll organise this directly with a representative from your bank or financial institution.

As settlement approaches, we’ll be back in touch to explain exactly what will happen on your move-in date. Once your settlement date is confirmed, this is when you’ll make the final deposit payment and unlock your new Caydon lifestyle.

The moment you’ve been waiting for

Move-in day is here! We’ll be waiting to hand over your apartment keys, plus we’ll go through the move-in procedures and instructions for connecting your utilities.

To help you get to know your new home, we'll introduce you to our resident app - Caydon HQ. This is where you can book your new shared spaces, be notified of much-anticipated deliveries, and communicate with your community of fellow residents.

With all the hard work now over, it’s time to sit back and enjoy your brand-new apartment in style. Did someone say rooftop drinks?
