Compliance Certificate Clarification

Don't get me started on building surveyors -ours didn't even sight the relevant COC because there wasn't one! (unlicensed plumber).

Unbelievable. Is it likely that they will stop plumbing self-certification?

Our site plan doesn't seem to say anything other than the fact that there should be a fall of approx 1m length away from the slab.

So levelling the land with soil wouldn't make a difference? Is it because the water would just sink to the original soil level?
We will take your advice -thank you.

Home Insurance For Slab Heave

It's home and contents insurance.
Our (now previous) home insurance refused to give us just contents insurance.
Besides, we need insurance for storm/fire/theft etc.

What sort of path is this?

The weep holes are 150mm above the ground.
Yes, I thought that the path would have to pool water to drain, however, the path is sloped so it won’t pool water.

Yes, the drainage doesn’t make sense to me either!

My friend is renting a property and it has a path, as illustrated, right around the house.

The path is not made of concrete but rather some sort of crushed rock…
