Our build is almost finished and we are now in the process of getting Interim Occupation Certificate. Apparently we need to provide Surveyors Certificate and have some questions. 1) What is it? 2) How to get one? 3) Did Clarendon pay for it or yourself? Council said they don't issue it and I should...

Have you seen the fairmont range? The 34 and 35 might also address your needs. It has 5 beds upstairs, downstairs bedroom/study with dual access bathroom. Stairs are facing the front of the house Has the kitchen, dining and family in zones. I've seen people put a big picture window at the rear of t...

Hi all Has anyone gone about a process of a final occupation certificate without engaging the private certifier? We are having a lot of issues with our certifier and now Clarendon stating we need to engage a surveyor at our own cost to provide a report on our hydraulics. Any stories of getting arou...

Do you know if sarking in walls is mandatory in NSW? Do you know of anyone who didn't get it? Sarking in walls is only done in QLD as standard as far as we've seen. Roof sarking is standard only in NSW

Ssssoooo, we received an email from our SS last Thursday, update on progress, book in second PCI and potential Handover for next Thursday. Stated that he had spent the whole day on site with his maintenance man, and ALL brickwork and mortar issues had been rectified (amongst other things!). Now I d...
Yep! They did that with our brickwork too and we cracked it... The saying goes, if you pay peanuts, you get monkeys...an...

We’re building in Brisbane (began late July) and we supplied all our own lights. https://forum.homeone.com.au/u/76368_1516396910.jpeg Wow you're prices are cheaper as well...so crazy that the prices differ too... Yeah we asked if they would install them and were told no......

[quote="mattmatty"]Hey nilej Just a little from my experience. Will be hard to say cause everyone will get different packages etc. I'm grabbed a house and land in Box Hill. It ended up costing a fortune. Base price was already very high (much more elevated than the standards). Any deviati...

Handover. For those of you that have had Handover - what is the actual process?? Is it another walk-through? Do they physically give you the interim occupancy certificate at that meeting? Do you just hand them the final bank cheque and they give the house keys and that's it?? Is it that simple?? An...

It’s a Wentworth. We changed a heck of a lot though. The WIR was a 5th bedroom/nursery. Then joined the existing wir amd small bathroom into a bigger ensuite. Also added 1m to the overall length of the house, which we put into making the bedroom 1 and 2 bigger. Absolutely in love with the finished ...
