Fingers crossed that you need to pay the land tax!
Have you went on your tiles appointment? How did you go?

Hi! My settlement hasn't completed yet, so unfortunately I can't answer your question. Did your settlement happen pre-June 30 2020?

how was your national tiles appointment? which flooring did you go with? :) would be nice to hear about how you're going with your build.

That is a great price.
Did you get the refined flooring promotion? Is that ~$12k after applying the promo?
I was thinking of having 600x600 tiles (the cheaper $20 per square) done…
