Aah ok, fair enough...interesting offering, I see that they have that on their website...cheaper comes with less service..They should have made that clear to you up front :/

Well that's the problem I'm trying to call out. You should be credited for A , if you replace A with B.
It is also in the wording. For my tile…

Already at Hebel stage? You're well ahead of us...site scrape next week and slab pour 31/05 (apparently).

Very ordinary that the aerial isn't connected. Have you noticed other things?
It's one of the things that I've been worried about myself...you can have lots of inclusions and add-ons, which…
