Well we have finally got a settlement agent who was recomended to us via our mortgage advisor, and she is very reasonable in price ! So now the ball is rolling , and hopefully it won't be too long till we settle on our land ! Thanks for all the replies re the settlement agent.

Phoned Bellmac and Focus Settlements as suggested and got quite different quotes, the basic price was very similar, but for all the extras you have to pay, very different quotes, I think that Bellmac have mistaken our enquiry, I think that they quoted us for buying a house aswell, as they quoted us on shire rates and water rates etc, where we are only settling on land at this time , if anyone has any more advice on this, or can actually tell me of there experiences re just settling on land, I would really appreciate it, thanks. Once I get a final quote I will list it for you potential aussiemovers to see ! !

We have been looking at land for a few weeks now and I was getting very disheartned at the whole process, because we couldn't find a plot of land that both of us liked, and it also wasn't in an area we liked aswell. We looked non-stop at buying land in Butler, as we are renting here and love living here as most of the friends we have made live here. But we just couldn't find a plot that ticked all of our boxes. So we have bought a piece of land up in Yanchep, about 15 mins drive north of Butler. We are all very excited about the whole process of building our own home here in Australia and will keep you up to date with it all.
Also the kids are relieved as we don't have to go around anymore looking at square blocks of sand ! LOL
