Firstly based in WA. I have been reading through the many many posts on the H1 forums around getting inspections for all stages of a new build. I fully understand the importance of it, a lot of money goes into building a house and want to make sure it is right. There seems to be different arguments over who you should get to do the inspections and it seems different from state to state, some recommend engineers, some recommend inspection consultants etc etc. As this forum's title states "Getting it Right!" I want to make sure I do this.
So in WA, who should you be engaging with to ensure you keep the builder right and honest? I am using one of the bigger WA builders, unfortunately already paid a deposit, but still back and forward over the plans with no date set in for pre-start, no final documents etc. Who do I look at to help me along this path? Who is trustworthy and knows what they are talking about and who are the sharks?
For any that are interested, this is the build we are looking at the moment - http://forum.homeone.com.au/viewtopic.php?f=31&t=85194
Thanks for any advise!
