Be wary of low cost quotes
The quotes you receive will likely vary greatly in cost. This is because they may not include all the drawings required for Council approval. For a DA submission to be successful, all necessary inclusions to satisfy Council's strict guidelines must be present. Incomplete development applications can cause issues later in the process, in fact DraftingHelp is often called in to complete inadequate development applications that have been submitted by others.

Find out the exact drafting requirements for your project
An easy way to understand exactly what is involved and required is to visit your Local Council office and ask. You can also arrange a pre-lodgement meeting to discuss your development plans or check the development application form for full submission details.

Ensure your Draftsman will take Planning Guidelines into account when working on your project
The person working on your project plans will not only need to take care of the drafting but also know and understand the planning regulations in your area. A great looking set of plans will not achieve approval if the planning guidelines have not been taken into consideration and strictly followed.

Understand that the cheapest site survey is not always the best
Over the years, DraftingHelp has seen many surveys ranging in cost to the client, however, the less expensive surveys do not often have the detail included to provide the necessary information on the project drawings.

Make sure you can communicate well with your Draftsman
When hiring a Draftsman, a relationship is formed and you will need to be able to communicate with them during the time it takes for your plans to be completed. Delayed email response times and communication difficulties will only hinder your project.

Watch out for charges for changes to drawings
changes to drawings can be costly. Therefore, it is important to ask your Draftsman whether they will charge for changes to drawings. This can make a significant increase to your budget.

All DraftingHelp Packages are at fixed prices, so there are no additional charges for changes to drawings.
