Hi Nikil,
That's what I actually told their Accounts staff. We are not paying until all our windows and doors are in place. I don't mind paying even if the plaster…

Hi Kush,
I guess they can't bill you yet because they haven't finished your bricks yet. Our hebel has been finished, but we've got 2 broken windows (master and living) and…

Hi Guys, just a quick question. When does PD send the lock-up invoice? Is it before plaster is started or after plaster has been completed? I got our lock-up invoice,…

I hope so too Hurrow! I don't know what's wrong with these people, getting their kick from stealing and damaging other people's property. They don't know how much hard work…

We're still at frame stage, it was just added at our contract. I guess it would look like the ones on display, no cornice at all.

Hi Nikil,
I would suggest that you talk straight to their customer experience coordinator as from experience, my BC's manager also doesn't care. I copied her about my complaint against my…

Ha, ha, ha..we paid deposit in October and no one contacted us until January to book our appointments. Had selection in Feb, tender in April then contract in May with…

I think they added some allowance to the construction schedule already to avoid paying penalties. Wow, you are really smashing it! Site start already after paying deposit just this year!…

Lol, Nikil, imagine I had 5 building variations :-) and mind you, the variations can add or delete cost from your contract :-)

I believe this is the final check before they send your papers to construction, they do different stages of quality check which I think is good :-)
