Which mine does, straight into drains by the builder and their plumber. Thanks.

If op has concrete paths min fall 25mm over 1 metre to yard / perimeter drains it will be fine. 70mm fall is getting to be ridiculous and unusable. As…

25mm for concrete is all you need

My builder did it after my inspector pointed it out to them that it is a requirement. Cheers

Tell them to use flexible non permeable such as sikaflex

Not for paved or concreted surfaces, but grass yes

How many times must I repeat myself - GET A SOIL TEST DONE before you talk to the builder!!
If you ask metricon, they will actually tell you which company they…

Get an independent building inspector
Also get a copy of guides and tolerances

Just goto realestate.com.au and search homes in Paddington / Red Hill etc. It's full of them.

Don't pull out, just get a good independent building inspector for all of the stage inspections.

The OP shouldn't need a tribunal as the house is covered by its statutory warranty. All they need to do is call the builder who is mandated to fix it.

Hardwood floor on stumps would be the best in most cases but there wouldn't be many builders who would do it let alone volume builders.

I really don't think we will have a royal commission into the building industry. Too much at stake for both major political parties and with property prices in Sydney and…

We went with a volume builder who only does waffle pods and we are taking all precautions. Just be aware though that conventional slabs can also heave.

The thing is that non compliance can be worked around by the builder with a letter from an engineer or other qualified professionals.
Non compliance doesn't mean wrong, it just…

Unfortunately to get the house that we all want, we have no choice but to use the volume builders. And they all use waffle pods.

Best Brisbane builder for large average home

We live at Newport which is north of Brisbane and the McLachlan homes we have seen on display are truly magnificent and very well finished.

Wrong, it is a structural defect and the OP should have statutory cover by the builder. At the very least, call your builder to come and fix it and then…

You need a qualified independent building inspector to get up there and write you a report. In Queensland, structural defects are the builders responsibility for 6 yrs and 6mths after…

I would follow the steps from the link I posted above , then contact the builder.. You might get more help than you think.

I have attached G and P QBCC Licence screenshot, which shows 8 demerit points:
"8 18 Dec 2017 Breach of s.51B(2) QBCC Act, licensing contractor

That's why I like…
