Spring Campaign - Love Being a Local

There’s more to life and more to love in Ambia.

The lifestyle locals love

The best of both worlds awaits you at Ambia. Nestled within natural bushland, with 3.4 hectares of retained native wetland at its core, your backyard will have more trees than you can count. As close to nature as you will be, you will still be within walking distance of everything you need: great shops, friendly daycare, and excellent coffee. At Ambia, your life begins. Become a local and start yours.

I love being a local because Ambia is a very quiet and peaceful area, but still close to parks and shops and not too far from the city

  • What is the process of buying land in Ambia?

  • What is the difference between titled and untitled land?

    Titled land means individual blocks have been physically created (which means you can see it in person and it’s ready to start building on straight away), and there is now a record of the specific lot through a Certificate of Title, which is registered with the Land Registry. The block is now able to be settled by the purchaser.

    Untitled land means the above process has not yet taken place. It could be under construction, or yet to be developed. When purchasing untitled land, you will be advised of an estimated Title Due Date by our Land Sales Consultant, for when your new block will be ready to build on.

  • What First Home Buyer’s Grants are available?

    If you’re a first home buyer, you can take advantage of the First Home Owners Grant (FHOG), which is a once off payment of $10,000 to help you build your new home.

    The First Home Loan Deposit Scheme (FHLDS) is a Government initiative to help you build your first home sooner. If you have less than a 20% deposit, you are normally required to pay Lender’s Mortgage Insurance (LMI). With the FHLDS, the Government guarantees up to 15% of the value of the house and land package, so you won’t need to pay LMI, saving you thousands.

  • How do I choose the right block?

    Considering the right block for you is extremely important. Firstly, know your budget, which includes the approximate building costs. Consider the location, such as proximity to shops, schools and parks. Look at the orientation of the block, as this can affect the energy efficiency and possibly your floorplan. Finally, consider the block size and shape, as this will affect the size of your home and backyard.

    Check out our top 5 tips things to consider when choosing your block.

  • What do different soil types mean?

    When building a home, soil type classification is an important factor, as it determines the foundation of your new home.

    Ambia has Class A soil, which is the best soil type classification to build on.

    Here are the different soil types:

    Class A (stands for Acceptable): This is the highest quality site classification, which means there is little to no ground movement from moisture changes (such as sand and rock). With this soil type, there is no additional drainage specifications required and the builder can lay a standard slab on it. A class A site is most sought after by builders and is most common in land subdivisions in WA.

    Class S (stands for Satisfactory): This soil type is slightly reactive with only slight ground movement from moisture changes (such as clay sites). If you buy an S class site, you will need a combination of onsite stormwater retention as well as a connection to council drainage system.

    Class M (Moderately Reactive – moderate ground movement), H (Highly reactive – high ground movement) and P (Problem – includes soft soils that are subject to erosion) are very rarely offered.
