Hi Rajan,
I read Arun's whole post while researching about Fairmont. I have also spoken to Mr BJ, came across to me as very informative and upfront about the inspection process.

Yeah, The FHOG held us back big time. Apparently due to some naming issues in the identities that we provided and in the contract/FHOG paperwork, hopefully it's all sorted now…

Hi Guys,
How are things going on?
The NBN charge is around $500 for a single story build and close to $750 for a double story.
The additional $1200 is for the connecting…

How good is that!!
I guess, it's a good bet to buy/build in any established suburb. Besides Enfield/clearview are both under 10 km from CBD and close to main public…
