Thought I share our experience with site costs at MW , stage 3
Wish we had known about this forum a couple of months ago.
We own a block at Marriot Waters (Lyndhurst Stage 3) and where about to sign the contract to build (PD)
That is until we where informed that our site costs are $21,600
The issue is a sewerage pipe/trench running along the right side boundary on the easement of our neighbours - the set back to our slab is 1.2 meters
-something about the angle of repose ??
Site costs -
additional run of single phase power over 12 m
upgrade stormwater to 100mm under future driveway
charge for manual handling
additional slab mesh
screw pile set out
screw pile test
provide screw piles as per engineers requirements
We are ready to walk away after this. The developers don't want to know about it and advised us to get a quote from a different builder .
any comments or experiences would be appreciated
