Homebuilder Grant Scheme - Shocking outcome!!

I saw in the news a very small number approved, about 250? so they might relax the ruling to get better take up.

Yeah, I hope you get it as what you are doing is in the spirit of the grant.

Crazy as it sounds, just make sure it's all worth it and the builder doesn't suck it all up in commission/margin.

Make sure its included in your tender as the builder may add a clause in the contract that marketing material or emails do not form part of the contract (seen…

Inspection of brand New Home without exit clause

I'd ignore the fact that its a new build and treat it as buying any other house. Would you recommend buying a car without getting it checked out? Who knows…

If your brother isn't building it with a practical completion inspection etc, I would think of it as just buying any other house, you don't know how it was built…

I can't see an answer to my questions though.
Who oversaw the build.
Who gave them the amended plans.
