Building in these uncertain times

Hi Michael,
If you can hold off I probably would. We’re in the build process now and whilst we haven’t had any issues or delays, the uncertainty is worrying.

When do you pay for Post Contract Variations?

Definitely ask them, it won't hurt and you'll know where you stand :)
