Thanks Shirokuma. I did call Blackett Homes but they were charging $1,000 for a quote and it is non-refundable :(

Anyways, now I need to appoint a new builder to complete my…

Penalty for delayed completion date

You are right Mark. I would rather have delays with good quality built than fast and crap. In my case, they are taking their time (took 5-6 months to lockup)…

I just looked at your blog HomeAngels and it seems that you are in the same boat as me... things are delays after delays! Though at least your builder hasn't…

I would say March when they started the work because there are a few paperwork to get done before they can commence work like getting DA approval etc.
Anyone disagree?

Do you think I should ask them to retrofit the roof sarking and get R6 batts? (correction from previous post, our contract specified that we are getting R5 batts.
Thank you…

No, I didn't have a chance of meeting the independent inspector of our house (to be honest, I didn't know that it is an option).

I swear I did all my research before I…
