PDA To Contracts:

What Exactly IS the Process?

The PDA to Contracts Process Explained:

The Planned Development Agreement (PDA) is step one in your new build with Front Light, and signing the PDA and submitting your deposit allows our team to put your new construction on our master schedule. During the Planned Development phase, Front Light will coordinate modifications with the architect and submit the plans through the community Architectural Review Board (ARB). Plans include a full set of architectural plans (structural, electrical, landscape, grading, etc.). Front Light shall provide and pay for all Architectural and Plan Review Fees necessary to obtain conceptual approval in connection with, or related to, the plan development and ARB submissions.

The Planned Development Price shall be credited against the first draw during construction if you choose to hire Front Light to build the house on your lot. If you decide not to move forward with us, that development price is non-refundable, but you will have ARB approval and will own all the plans. Once we are all the way through plans development and changes, we will price out your build and go to a formal contract, and the Planned Development Fee will be credited towards your 15% down payment. After your contract is signed we will schedule your Design Appointment at our in-house design center.
