@worldofmud Oh okay. No, I am not allowed access to the site, as it is unregistered. We were given access only due to the soil test clause in our contract. Its frustrating when they take your money and do as minimum as possible. I will have a talk to the builder and see what they have to say about t...

@worldofmud Thank you for the reply. I will make sure to ask the builder about the red line. How deep do builders usually cut the site to construct the slab on site with rock? I tried searching online but there isn't any information about this.

Hi guys, Does anyone know what is the main difference between a HIA QC1 and QC2 build contracts? Both QC1 and AC2 are new house construction contracts but QC2 has "Peace of mind" in its title. So is QC2 a better contract? Planning to build a house and wanted to know how these contracts dif...

No, we decided to deal with the builder directly. We asked for a quote from a builder through the broker and it was almost $15k more expensive than the quote we got from the builder directly. So we decided we don't want any mediator in between us and the builder, which will be expensive as there wil...

Hi, I came across this carpet in many display homes and wanted to know if anyone knows what type of carpet is this? Is it closed loop? Any help would be really appreciated. Thank you Albert https://forum.homeone.com.au/u/97500_1598704790.jpg

Hi @Chris thank you for the reply. Yes even we thought it was not really a free service. The builder increases the base price of the house in order to cover the commission for the broker. So we decided against hiring one and dealing with the builders ourselves.

Hi, we have started planning to build our new house and we came across a building broker who said its free of charge for us as they get paid by the builder as a commission. Does anyone have any experience using a building broker? Is it worth hiring them? Any suggestions would be really helpful
