Frequently Asked Questions 2017-10-26T10:05:24+00:00


Following are some questions we are often asked

  • Can I make changes to one of Land Homes house plans?

    Of course!  Our standard range of house plans have been developed in conjunction with customers and are popular.  However, you are free to amend any of our plans, or we can design you a new home from scratch in order to suit your individual needs.  Just talk to us about what you would like.   We are here to help you. Visit us at one of our show homes, or complete our contact form to get in touch today.

  • How long will it take to build my home?

    Once we have worked with you in designing your home, we will submit all the necessary documents to council and handle the consent process. Once your permit is issued we will have a hand-over meeting and introduce you to your Construction Manager. At your first site meeting you’ll receive a build programme outlining key dates for your build. Our standard build time is 14 to 16 weeks however, this can vary based on the complexity of the site and size of your home.

  • What is a licenced building practioner?

    The purpose of licencing people in the building industry is to ensure that those who are responsible for the work being done in building your home are competent and accountable, so that homes and buildings are designed and built right the first time. All our required staff and sub-contractors are licenced and are more than happy to show you examples of their work, or credentials if you would like. Just ask.

  • Will you quote on a home plan/design that I already have, or do I have to use one of Land Homes?

    We welcome the opportunity to work with you on a plan or design that you may already have. After all it’s your new home, and we want to ensure it meets your needs. Imagine your personalised home built for you, from the ground up.

  • Will I have to look after the building consent process?

    No, part of the ease of building with Land Homes is that we take care of that process for you. The consenting process (and possible resource consent if required) is onerous, and requires the completion of detailed forms and drawings. Our experienced staff liaise directly with the council as we have preferential treatment for the fast tracking of building permits.

  • Will I have to pay a deposit, and what will my payment structure look like?

    During the design phase of your home we may require a deposit to cover draughting costs. However, this amount is taken off the contract price of your home, should you decide to build with Land Homes. As we are not a franchise business we are able to offer you flexibility in how your house payments are structured. Your sales consultant will talk with you about the options.
