Who's building with Clarendon??

We had provision for solar put in and did it after handover. We didn’t do a battery but paid just under $10k for a 10kw inverter and 8kw of panels.…

If they agree with the issue then they will come back to rectify - we did handover with stair treads and risers that weren’t stained. I wouldn’t hand over the…

When we had handover they had a book that you wrote your list of issues at handover in. Then you got one copy (pink maybe) and they got the other.

Our handover was a few hours long. They tried to dissuade us from writing some things down on the handover list but we wrote them down anyway and that’s how…

Did you change cabinetry after plans were finalised? Maybe they didn’t move plumbing from the original position.

Make sure you have all defects at handover well documented. We noticed our glass splash back was scratched about 3 days after handover. At the six month inspection they wouldn’t…

What ceiling height are you having downstairs. If it was 2750 or higher I wouldn't think this was a problem. If it's 2450 that might be why they can't do…
