TASS | Trusted After Sales Support

It is one thing to acquire a prime building lot in Nova Scotia, but quite another thing to have local expertise and support by your side when building your dream home.

After our customers purchase their property with guaranteed title and survey lines, the fun part follows with the construction of a cottage or home.

To maintain the fun factor during the full length of your building project, we happily support you with our 25+ years experience in working with local contractors and approval boards.

Property Preparation and Financing

After the property has been transferred, we recommend opening an account with a local bank to conveniently make payments for any work that you may start on the property, such as driveways, tree cutting, preparing for a building site etc.

Which financial institution is best suited for your needs including financing?

Site Preparation

Before construction starts, you will need to determine with an environmental engineer the exact locations of your home, well (dug or drilled?), septic system, and access road for a building permit to be issued. Important factors to consider are the distances kept between the septic field in relation to the well, house, road etc. Once the exact site for the house is determined, the locations of all necessary infrastructure will be drawn by an environmental engineer into a site plan. These plans will be submitted to regulatory bodies along with construction plans for approval and permitting.

Which environmental engineer should I choose? Who can provide a miniexcavator for required soil testing? Who can install an underground power line?

House Planning and Construction Work

Construction plans may be available online, can be obtained from an architect, or from the company building your home. Once you’re satisfied with the plans, you can expect the building permit within 4-6 weeks!
