FAQS

All homes are guaranteed against structural defects for the period of seven years from the date we apply for your Warranty Insurance.

Your builder will generally provide maintenance for up to 13 weeks from the date you take occupancy of your dream home.

Yes, your house is insured under your builder’s All Risk Construction policy.  Please note that the insurance expires upon issue of the Certificate of Occupancy.

Yes, your dream home will fit on the concrete or timber floor. It may appear too small, but this is a popular misconception at this stage of construction.

No, we cannot hand over our builder’s master key at any time.  Your builder will, however, arrange for the house to be opened for you by prior arrangement, during business hours. Just contact the builder with your requirements

It is better if you do not discuss the work with sub-contractors.  Any instructions or changes given to sub-contractors must only come from your builder. Due to requirements of the builder’s insurance policy, you should not visit the site unless you have permission from the builder.

All variations must be documented writing and given to the builder. Please refer to our special conditions about variations that are requested after contract signing and colour selection.

Variations requested after the colour selection has been completed will always delay progress, and will cost significantly more than adjustments made before the plans and specifications are finalised. It is better to avoid post-contract changes where possible.

The completion of your new home is dependent upon Council requirements, weather, availability of materials, variations to the contract, etc.  We can, however, give an approximate date of completion once we reach the fix-out stage.

Sometimes you may be able to keep excess materials (eg. bricks) but you must not do so unless you have written permission from the builder.

Generally, it is the owner’s responsibility to arrange these items. Keep in touch with your builder to find out the correct time to arrange these connections.

You should arrange applicable cover for your house and contents from the day you take occupancy of your new dream home.

Knockdown rebuild projects can be a cost-effective alternative to relocating. For many people living in inner-city suburbs, it’s all about location, convenience, and lifestyle. If you live in a great location and don’t want to move, but your home is old, out-dated, or no longer meets your needs, then Occman homes have the solution.

Occman Homes complete several Knock Down Rebuild projects each year. We appreciate that the demolition of your existing home is only the first step to a much more considerate build, so we take care that any existing trees or landscaping are protected while maintaining an amicable relationship with existing neighbours.

With our range of experienced demolition experts on hand, demolition of your existing home can form part of the build contract or be separate if required. Call us to have a chat about the process.

If your goal is to knockdown and rebuild your existing home, the team at Occman Homes is here to help, with over 28 years’ experience in helping clients achieve their dream home and desired lifestyle.

Our design process is all about providing you with total peace of mind. We can guide you through the process from the demolition of your old house to obtaining all the necessary council paperwork and approvals.
