Thank you to every one that entered the ballot for a Berba home!
Your questions answered
How to purchase if you're selected in the ballot
If you are successful in the ballot for one of the 28 homes - congratulations! Please reach out to us as quickly as possible to meet with our sales team to sign the Sales & Purchase agreement. The Ballot automatically redraws if no contact is established. We would hate for you to miss out!
A copy of the Sales & Purchase agreement is available for download.
It is important to highlight to all successful ballot winners, before entering into a Sales and Purchase agreement for a Berba home, the purchaser must be able to provide proof of a written pre-approval letter from their bank sufficient to purchase the property with not less than a 10% deposit.
If this is not possible, we would unfortunately not be able to enter into a Sales & Purchase Agreement and would therefore ask KiwiBuild to redraw the ballot for that home.
We are encouraging everyone to seek pre-approval from their broker or banks as quickly as possible. We work with some excellent brokers who can turn around a pre-approval very quickly for you. Their details are in our Berba info pack available for download here.
10% of the purchase price of your home and is due once your finance condition of the sales and purchase agreement.
IS THERE ANY WAY THAT THE DEVELOPER WOULD ACCEPT LESS THAN 10%?
Unfortunately, 10% is required under the terms of the agreement. Don't forget, you may be able to use some of your KiwiSaver savings towards your deposit (see question below).
Yes, definitely. If you are successful in the ballot your Solicitor can manage this process for you. It can take time, so please check with your KiwiSaver provider on how long it typically takes for the funds to be released. It’s a good idea not to leave this to the last minute.
Unfortunately we are not able to enter agreements under the First Home Partner scheme.
Yes, buying any home is a big deal and its important you and your family fully understand the legal agreement you are entering into and what is expected from you in order to settle and move in. A Solicitor can also explain the Kiwibuild Deed of Covenant Document. This document explains what you can and can’t do with your home under the Kiwibuild home ownership scheme.
Unfortunately, we are not able to facilitate any changes under the contract terms BUT that aside, we will be delivering beautiful first homes we think you will love... and at an incredible price point!
After you've purchased your new home
Not quite. There are a couple of very important steps for the development team and their Solicitors to achieve after the buildings are complete. Before settlement and we hand over the keys, the buildings will require Auckland Council to issue CCC (Code of Compliance Certificate) and LINZ to issue Titles for each home. The timing on this can vary across different projects and workloads at Auckland Council processing teams.
Aedifice Property Group has engaged a highly experienced team to meticulously plan and execute this process in the best time frames possible. To understand more on the steps moving towards settlement if you are successful in the Ballot we would recommend your Solicitor guides you through this.
Yes you sure will. One of Aedifice Client Relationship Managers will send you regular site photos and let you know what the builders are working on. We will also post aerial drone images on our website, making sure you have a bird's eye view on the progress month-to-month.
Absolutely! There is a private park for residents, a multi-use games area and more... Plus, just metres away is 240,000sqm of Parrs Park offering a huge range of activities, clubs and opportunities for indoor/outdoor fun for all ages.
No, but there is a Residents Association that will look after the development's common areas (managed by Barfoot & Thompson). More info is available in the Sales & Purchase agreement.
At the time of sale the annual fee per unit was $773.35 (inc GST) and is subject to change.
The Residents Association is responsible for insuring the common areas only. Individual home insurance is the responsibility of the home owner, with the home owner/tenant responsible for contents insurance.
