Hi, Is there anyone ever go to legal action with Clarendon ? I have talked to Solicitor, Lawyer and Fair Trading, but I need further advise before proceeding to legal 100% full-on. Cheerz.. Hi wentworth33, we went the Fair Trading route and managed to have a favorable outcome for our case.

So we have finally moved in! Handover was 3 weeks ago - some notable defects still but wasn’t anything major ie. lower staircase hand rail wasn’t installed and silicone for shower screens missing etc. We managed to claim some liquidated damage due to the delay but wasn’t pleased with the amount as t...

Anyone has any idea how long does the certifier that Clarendon uses needs to issue a Final Occupancy Cert once inspection been made and it’s satisfactory?

Well.. I assumed that each building design has its own contractor and each contractor has its own performance. Hence performance difference but following Clarendon guidelines. Does it make sense? Therefore, cannot generalise all contractor are the same. each individual works differently, even they ...
It does makes sense but shouldn't quality associated with a builder is expected to be consistent throughout, regardless...

Been told our new SS will be assigned next week (name starts with D) but AS will still be involved for the walkthrough with us and ...

Thanks both. We plan to claim it ourselves as the contract clauses are pretty straight forward and we are pretty sure it did not rain much during the first 6 months of construction before the roof was up, apart from few public holidays in between the delay is unacceptable. We will wait till the new ...

Has anyone experienced such and been successful in claiming for the delay expenses? We were initially told a handover date in April. That’s way over th...

We're building the Bronte and currently on the plans they have the air con unit out the back but we want it on the side of the house as we plan to put a pool out back down the track. At Tender they weren't sure that the plann...

We are building in Leppington and just had our bathrooms tiled and grouted. Cabinets installed but no garage door. This week th...
