Hi baronx, weren't you going with Urban Edge at one stage? Did you change? @brokenstick We were going with them, but we pulled the plug before contract. We found them extremely unhelpful when we had any issues about their "process". They are not following the law set by the VBA which dict...

I've built with them. Happy to answer your questions. Hi @MBP, we are planning to build with them, but there are no reviews online. It would be great it you could share.. - how your experience with them was in general ? - if you would recommend them ? - if given the opportunity to build again, woul...

Thanks Travis. We actually decided to go with another builder after all. They wouldn't build on a conventional raft slab. Only waffle pod and I was not comfortable with that. @kak85 Which builder did you end up going with ? We are looking at building Larimar 43 with Granvue in Melbourne West & ...

Is there any damage? We've had some consistent cracking around wall voids which the builder has fixed time after time. A few years ago the builder also fixed underground piping that was broken due to house movement. We've had some new cracking now in the middle of the house and one of the expansion...

If you’re after the cause of slab heave then you will need a geotechnical report Thanks.. Actually we don't even know if there is a slab heave. So, I'm after recommendations for a building inspection or building + geotechnical report to check the state of the house.

A little off-topic, but any recommendations for building inspector/engineer to access a single story dwelling for slab-heave in Tarneit (VIC) Do you mean for a report ? Yes, a building inspection report for a house built a few years ago.

In the same boat; looking for reviews. Are you building with them or have you found someone else ?

This keeps getting better & better as I dig more into it; apparently UrbanEdge are within their rights to bypass the amendments to the building act & enforce the recommendation of a building surveyor. https://www.accc.gov.au/public-registers/authorisations-and-notifications-registers/exclusi...

@brokenstick Thanks a lot for your reply. It's great to be in touch with someone whose gone through the same issues.. I think we'll be pushing back as their quotes & timelines should have factored the current building act. We are building the Autern 54 and given the size & cost of the build,...

Hi all, we are planning to build a house in Victoria (Melbourne West) and have spent a year planning the build with our builder - UrbanEdge. Now at contract we have been told that we have just one option for surveyor and if we don't go with their preferred surveyor, then we can't build with them. Gi...

Hi Wild, UrbanEdge have been pretty slow with the process too, but they have been very accommodating to changes at any stage and are pretty good with responding to emails. We paid our initial deposit in November in 2017, were due to sign contract in July and site-start in August 2018. But, things ha...

Looks like we gone for similar colors, although slightly lighter shades. We have gone for open space and light, and also added higher ceilings, window splashbacks, extra glass sliding doors and a big window at the back. One of the things we liked about the Andu is how open it is at the back Your co...
Your color tone is very similar.. it will come out really well. Land anywhere in Melb. is selling like hot cakes, espec...

Hi @kiara .. our base was $435K and we are now sitting at $590K. Majority of the upgrades are from the kitchen/prep where we have spent almost $30K on cabinets etc. We have done our colors and electrical and waiting on some final pricing for contract. I've also created a FB group "Urbanedge Hom...

Only issue now is there's hardly any reviews online for good surveyors, as most people are still going with one from the builders' friend-list.

We've had our tender appointment; when the drawings were received, most of the changes we asked for when the paperwork was submitted hadn't been incorporated. So, I had my reservations about UE as I went in, but I was converted very quickly. The admin was very nice to deal with and noted all the cha...

There doesn’t seem to be much on building with Urbanedge Homes, so I thought I’d start a dedicated thread & share our experience After our tender disaster with Henley , we ended up going with Urbanedge as the wifey got fixated on the Autern 6-54 plan . I must admit thought that the plan is reall...

@alwayslearning Who did you go with for your surveyor? We are going to build in Truganina and looking for recommendations.
