Builder hit a domestic sewer pipe when erecting piers

We had a similar experience. In Victoria the plans from yarra valley clearly stipulate that the sewer map they provide is a 'guide' only. Unless the builder asked you to…

Found out raised bathroom at completion stage.

Yes this is a big and organised industry these days which means that we can't trust most on line reviews. Might be worthy of a brand new thread.

We hear a lot about builders becoming insolvent or being deregistered but I would like to know what these ex registered builders do for work following these events. From what…

Keep the PC and PS items to an absolute minimum. Tell the builder to get quotes at this stage, not later. This will require a longer time as the builder…
