At Bellriver we are committed to staying true to our values in respect to selling homes on unregistered land as in all
other aspects of our business. To this end we use our vast experience and knowledge to complete as much due diligence
as possible – including on surrounding subdivisions, knowledge of various soil conditions in the building area, and an
understanding of local council requirements. The Bellriver difference also includes:
New home tenders
At Bellriver we ensure that the expiry date on your new home tender is in line with a realistic registration date for
your land. We price our tenders to include expiry dates of up to 365 days where required to ensure there are no
hidden surprises for our clients, wherever possible. Please note: although we do our best to forecast registration
dates based on the information we have from the developers, we cannot ultimately control this. The development work
and final registration date is determined by the developer and council.
Site cost allowances
At Bellriver, we meet with our developers and partners to ensure we have a complete understanding of the way the
planned subdivision is to be completed. From these discussions, and based on the information we receive, we aim
to include all expected costs up front in our tender offer. Once the land is registered and we can access the site,
we will complete all required reports and ascertain the final site conditions. If there are any differences between
our initial allowances, we will go over them with you and come to an agreement prior to proceeding.
Provisional sum items
At Bellriver we have no ‘Provisional Sums’ or ‘Prime Cost’ items in our contracts. Almost every builder provides
allowances under these headings instead of a fixed price for items such as kitchens, tiles, carpet, vanities etc.
In a Bellriver home there are no provisional sum allowances for any items listed in our inclusions. Everything
you need is included in our standard offer.
At Bellriver we have no penalty clauses in any of our building contracts. These are clauses builder often use to
increase the price after the building contract has been signed.
Provisions for local council requirements
At Bellriver we conduct extensive due diligence to ensure that all council and government costs are included up front.
