Frequently Asked Questions
How long does the Feasibility Assessment take?
We will make contact with you within 48 hours confirming that we have received your request and we will then allocate a New Home Consultant to complete your Site Feasibility investigation. The assessment will be undertaken remotely and will take approximately 5-7 business days to complete.
What is the Auckland Unitary Plan?
The Auckland Unitary Plan is the blueprint for Auckland’s future building development and replaces older legislation around what types of homes can be built on different land zones in Auckland. The plan which was developed in 2013 now allows for more intensive housing developments to be built in some areas of the city and replaces inconsistencies across 8 district councils to provide a global planning framework for Auckland’s merged super city.
Will there be additional charges for this report?
The Site Feasibility Report is free and there will be no additional charges for the Feasibility Report. However, the report recommendations are made in good faith and using the best available knowledge and ability. The report findings are not a guarantee of building feasibility and may not be able to give a complete picture of the costs of building without additional tests or further investigation. Should further investigation be required that may incur additional costs, these costs will be agreed in advance with the property owner prior to commencement.
Will I be able to learn about the full cost of building on my section?
Yes, should you wish to proceed to the next stage with Ashcroft Homes you will be asked to complete an Intent to Progress Form (ITP). This next stage enables Ashcroft to work much more closely with you to investigate in more detail the home that you would like to build and site associated issues and costs. Should you wish to find out more about this process please call 0800 377 5885 and one of our New Home Consultants would be happy to assist.
Do you assess sites outside of Auckland?
No sorry, not at this time. All Free Feasibility Investigations are only valid in the greater Auckland area.
Any advice, recommendations, ideas, cost indications (relating to development or values) contained in the evaluation or otherwise communicated should not be treated as definitive, and should be verified by the client via relevant professionals before making any financial commitment. Ashcroft Homes accepts no liability for advice given other than specifically relating to a build or subdivisions contract should it be entered into.
