Hi there, We are looking to buy a parcel of land in NSW and also we are fairly new to the whole process. After reading a lot on this forum, I gained immense knowledge and information but when it comes to bringing up myself into the process I still don't feel confident. So we are heading up next week to look onto few blocks of land in which we are interested to purchase. This is basically a new estate with new land release. We are quite familiar with area and our plan is to first purchase the block of land and then hold it for a year or year and a half then later build it and occupy as PPoR. So next week our plan is to have a survey of the blocks of lands available. They are all in a range of 600-700 sqm. So whats next? Do we need to put on deposit (2k) once we decide on the land or first we negotiate the price.We haven's spoken to any lawyers,solicitor or conveyancer as yet. When do we need to speak to land surveyor or how do we get the soil tests done? Can someone please tell me the steps?
