Building A New House
Aug 27, 2010 3:32 pm
I am currently at near completion - construction stage with my builder and I have received yet another variation from them for the following, has anyone else been charged for this from their builder?
Engineering Reports and certificates
Bit odd and sinister right? mind you, these all add up to a few grand, which to me is ridiculous!
Any input appreciated.

I haven't recieved any nasty surprises, and we have just completed PCI.
We needed to pay a bushfire assessment fee, but electricity and the telephone were even included in our house price.

Your books are entirely unrealistic. I mean, a ginger kid with two friends?

Thank you for the replies,
we are currently in dispute with our builder and I believe this was raised solely due to that issue, we have received variation after variation which is becoming ridiculous. There are past customers of this builder who I have approached and asked if they were issued with the same variation and 100% of the customers have advised they did not receive such variations.
I think its time to name and shame!, I posted a previous post of my honest opinion of the builder and they demanded I remove the post! After my build is completed I will post a blog of my building experience with this builder so other consumers and honest people like us are not sucked into building companies like this. It is unfair practise leaving people like us in a difficult situation, If the builder resolves the disputes then I may consider not documenting my build, will have to wait and see how it all pans out.
Any further input will be appreciated.

Lol, cost of concrete itself creates a small difference. E.g. if you have 30 m3 of concrete in your slab and you pay $300 per m3 (which is on a very high side in NSW),…
