You would think so. But no it's a hidden little one line thing that says owners responsibility.

We moved in last September. Have been doing landscaping since then. Now the CDC are chasing us to get the final OC. But we have to do some stupid Works…

Hi all
Has anyone gone about a process of a final occupation certificate without engaging the private certifier? We are having a lot of issues with our certifier and now Clarendon…

Thanks JK27, that's what I was thinking. More an advisor and person who works on behalf of the client as the builders certainly don't.

Question, if given the chance. How many of you would enage the services of a project professional to help with the build process in terms of:
Negotiation of tenders, quotes, guidance…

The laundry door glass is scratches and the front door has warped a bit and has cracks. Cheaper to replace than repair.

Some cracks in the mortar, cracked tiles, pointing on the roof, shower head not fixed to wall, front and laundry door need replacing.

The defects weren't major and I got sick of waiting week on end to get them done. So I made sure they were on the practical completion checklist so they…

Well we have had handover. Still lots of defects to be fixed but our new SM is awesome. Best of the lot and 100% committed to quality so, he was…

Actually I just checked and it's not in there so yes the contract states that the provisional sum is due at the next payment. Chase them up and refer to…

I'd have to dig out my hard copy I think. But let me check my files and see what I can find.

2 years2 yearsGambit79Gambit79 posted:

Check the addendums to the contract. Ours has a clause added in the addendum that moved provisionals to the final payment milestone.

Still pretty crap. There is apparently a lot of work happening this week to fix the finishing and all the little things. Will see what it's like later in the…

It really depends on the state of your house and the trades. Our floors were done two months ago and still not moved in. Although our walkthrough is booked for…

Ours is the Decina Metro which is a high strength acrylic. So basically plastic.

It's Clarendon, they hire the trades and overwork the site managers. No care is taken. It's the companies responsibility and they simply don't give a crap.

We are on our third SS as well now. Have been told each week that the handover inspection will be in a week's time (for the past 4 weeks) so…

Has anyone had any issues with a private inspector getting access once the house is at lock up?

2 years2 yearsGambit79Gambit79 posted:

Don't do your contract until plans are done. For a knock down rebuild you will have to be out and the house knocked down and site cleared before they take…

With Clarendon the answer is 'as long as they want'. They don't give a damn about timeframe so expect a Christmas delay to result in slow progression for bout 3…

Clarendon are meant to be great for quality but I can't see it. Everything is just slapped together and late.

Most of it is simple **** but some of the highlights are, broken wooden windows frame, gouges in alluminium windows, cracked roof tiles, bare wire on electrical connections, staining to…

So I did a walkthrough today given that we are over a month late on handover, apparently meant to be having a pre handover inspection next week. Well so far…

Depends on your SM. Ours was cabinet fitout out then electrical and wet area tiling.

Wow you got a $100 a day how did you manage that. Ours was a HIA contract as well but only $15, negotiated up to $25. Which is still pretty…

They'll take into account rain days based on a 7 day period. Then unless you negotiated higher will pay you $15 per day over contract based on a 5 day…
