Building A New House
Apr 26, 2021 2:11 pm
I just put in an initial non-refundable deposit with Carlisle homes to secure a land. While browsing through the forum, I got to know that Carlisle homes is sly and has many unfair conditions in their contract. I have also carelessly signed an appointment letter to appoint their recommended building surveyor for the inspection. This would make it difficult to deal with defects from the house they built.
Reviews mostly come from building experience when it may be all red and rosy with excitement. I am curious to know how owners of these homes feel about the house after handover and staying for a while. Would be hell to have a house built but not livable and have to deal with these companies in court.
Would you help please to build up my confidence or help the common people like us to fight against unethical big business by sharing?
Thank you very much in advance.

you're screwed. just hand over your money now and hope for the best.
in all seriousness though, plenty of Carlisle homes out there that are fine, and people living in them love them. Sure some wonky conditions and strange approach to waterproofing aren't a great start.
Though you may have learned your first lesson, do your research before signing anything.
