The Tel$tra cable issue is fixed. (hopefully).
The technician came to my place twice and he replaced the cable, then the drop out issue seemed disappeared. :z:

We had a hand over for the granny. There are still a few minor things but I liked the finish and love the granny.

I totally agree with what you suggested. Most people around me suggests not to pay in full as there is no motivation anymore so the builder won't appear again to…

I thought I need IOC before moving in physically?
I wouldn't have rushed and been stressed if we could move without IOC. The most troublesome was to sort out…

I have not given notice to the landlord. I would teminate the tenancy only when we are given the interim OC. The certifier will visit my site this…

We will know if the magic happens this weekend.

You meant the approval time?
6 weeks.
Zen was pretty fast in terms of designing the floor plan & other paper works.
