COMMON AREA CLEANING

The cleaner attends at The Vic each Thursday afternoon to clean the Common Areas (including mopping of tiles on all levels).

If any resident happens to have an accident (I.e. spill something on the Common Area), it is expected out of consideration for other residents, that they will clean up their own mess as it is unsightly and may pose a slip hazard. A special magic spray mop has been left in the water meter cupboard (next to the parcel lockers) on level G for residents to use to wipe up spills.

RUBBISH COLLECTION

The rubbish and recycling collections are undertaken by a private contractor each Tuesday morning.

Please ensure that the directions for rubbish and recycling posted in the waste room are followed. Residents that have excess cardboard waste due to moving in are requested to flatten all boxes and dispose of it over 2-3 weeks so that the OC does not unnecessarily get charged for excess waste disposal. Only general household waste is permitted to go in the rubbish bins. There is no hard rubbish collection from the bin room.

MOVING IN PROCEDURE (LIFT USAGE) & FREQUENTLY REQUESTED DOCUMENTS.

MOVING IN PROCEDURE

A reminder to all residents that they are required to make a booking online and use the lift override key when moving. The lift override key is stored in the onsite key safe next to the letterboxes and the code to open the safe is “5050”.

Obstructing the lift doors or forcing them open will cause the lift to malfunction and require Kone Elevator Service to attend which will be charged back to the residents responsible.

To operate the lift in manual mode, insert the key in the fire service key switch inside the elevator and turn the key to “ON”. Whilst in manual mode, select the floor required then hold the “door closed” button until the doors shut. When you arrive at the destination floor, press and hold the “door open” button to open the doors. At the end of your move, please switch the key switch back to “OFF” (which will return the lift to normal operation) and return the key to the key safe.

BOOK MOVE IN APPOINTMENT

UTILITIES CONNECTIONS

A reminder that residents need to open an account for electricity and hot water through Winconnect as final readings were taken at settlement and the service was suspended. Please visit the Winconnect website at www.winconnect.com.au, select “New Connection”, enter postcode “3057” and when you start typing in your apartment number you will see a list of addresses containing your apartment. Remember to connect both hot water and electricity.

Yesterday, we received the sign off from the City of Moreland Council.

20 January 2019 -
Council sign off currently in progress.

Happy New Year to all.

Yarra Valley Water have now consented to the subdivision, leaving the City of Moreland Council as the only authority remaining to consent to the subdivision. The Council have only completed their inspections during the past week (public realm, storm water and subdivision check) and we are now waiting for them to process their paperwork. We have been persistently following up but with the holiday period most of Council’s officers have only just returned from leave.

As such, we are now hopeful that we will obtain City of Moreland sign off by end of January/early February following which the subdivision can be lodged with Land Victoria who we understand have a standard subdivision processing time of 7-14 days. Based on this projection, the earliest that settlements can occur would be mid to late February and purchasers will at the earliest opportunity be given the settlement notice period as stated in their Contract of Sale. We will provide a further update as soon as the City of Moreland Council approval is obtained.

Many purchasers have already placed their order for blinds, some of which have already been installed and all orders will be installed prior to settlement.
We wish to advise that the deadline for blinds orders is Friday, 25 January by which day all orders must be lodged and payment is to be made. Orders will not be accepted after this time. As previously advised, the pricing is at wholesale COST price and is very competitive. The quote is for roller blinds for all windows with block out fabric to bedrooms and mesh to living areas. The colour is a neutral grey/off-white as selected by the Owners Corporation and must be adhered by all apartments. The pricelist and order form are below for purchasers who would like to take up this offer. Payments must be made by EFT at the time the order form is submitted:

News Update


11 December 2018 -
Purchaser inspections.

We confirm that we are still awaiting regulatory releases from various authorities. For example, whilst the water and sewer connections were both completed over a month ago Yarra Valley Water are still processing the release paperwork. Likewise there are some subdivision matters which require to be approval of the City of Moreland.

As it is not known how much longer it will take for all releases to be obtained (so that the plan of subdivision can be registered and settlements can proceed), and given the time of year, it now appears unlikely that settlements will occur this year. As such, it is likely that settlements will occur mid to late January 2019 and purchasers will at the earliest opportunity be given the settlement notice period as stated in their Contract of Sale.



Notwithstanding the above, apartments on levels 1 & 2 (original lot numbers starting with a 2 or 3) will be open for final purchaser inspection this Friday & Saturday as well as Monday & Tuesday next week.
Inspection dates for purchasers on Levels G & 3 (original lot numbers starting with a 1 or 4) will be confirmed later this week. Inspections need to be booked from this webpage using our electronic scheduling system - please click the the blue button just below. For anyone who has incorrectly booked using the valuation inspection booking system, those appointments have been cancelled, so please re-book an appointment.

Application for Certificate of Occupancy has been submitted and will be issued following the MFB inspection of the building.

City of Moreland have approved the storm water system connection, crossover and footpath designs and these works have been scheduled to occur over the next week.

Citipower, the electricity authority, have also signed off on the plan of subdivision, however, we are still waiting on final releases from some of the other statutory authorities.

At this time it is still not known how much longer it will take for all releases to be obtained in order for the plan of subdivision to registered so that settlements can proceed.

Tiling of the common areas and cleaning/detailing of the apartments is currently being completed following which we will be opening the apartments for purchaser inspections commencing next week on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

News Update


26 November 2018 -
Construction nearing completion.

Practical completion of construction is on target to occur on 30 November 2018.
At this time, the Metropolitan Fire Brigade (MFB) will be notified and are required to inspect the building within 10 days, following which the Certificate of Occupancy will be issued.

We are currently waiting on final approvals from City of Moreland Council in respect to stormwater/civil arrangements. NBN, electricity and water are all connected but we are waiting on the paperwork to issue from these authorities. We are waiting on the gas connection which is overdue but does not impact on the status of the subdivision.
Once the above authority releases occurs the subdivision can be lodged with the Land Registry (Titles Office) whose approval turnarounds are currently running at 5 business days.

Pursuant to the Contract of Sale, once both the Certificate of Occupancy has been issued and the Plan of Subdivision has been registered, purchasers are then required to complete settlement within 7 days.

The City of Moreland have also required the apartment numbers to be changed due to Council’s street numbering policy which requires the inclusion of a Ground level “G”. Click the following link to view details of the updated lot numbers/official street addresses: Street Address Details

A few additional matters:

1. The developer has upgraded the mail box system and has purchased electronic parcel lockers and these are expected to be installed in the next 2-3 weeks. These allow parcels to be dropped off when residents are not home and residents receive a notification on their phone whenever a parcel arrives. This is far more convenient than having to chase couriers or line up at Australia Post counters to collect your parcel.
For further information visit https://www.myparcellocker.com/

2. Another initiative by the developer is that the building has been cabled with Rocket Broadband which offers residents an alternative internet solution to NBN. Speeds are faster than NBN, prices are very competitive, connection is very simple over WIFI and there are no connection fees or lock-in contracts. There are also WIFI access points throughout the common areas to provide seamless coverage throughout the building.
For further information visit https://rocketbroadband.com.au/

3. As a service/convenience to purchasers, all apartments have been measured for blinds by our preferred blinds supplier. The pricing is at wholesale COST price and is very competitive. The quote is for roller blinds for all windows with block out fabric to bedrooms and mesh to living areas. The colour is a neutral grey/off-white as selected by the Owners Corporation and must be adhered by all apartments. The pricelist and order form are below for purchasers who would like to take up this offer. Payments must be made by EFT at the time the order form is submitted:
