Our old BC is STILL haunting us!
Just had a phone call stating that we have received a $6000 discount twice. It was supposed to be off the land, which we were given by the land developer, but then our BC or whoever wrote our contract has put it in our building contract too. I did mention this to our old BC in an email where I asked for clarification on how they came to the base house price.
So now we have to have ANOTHER PCV adding on more money, that of course can't be added into the loan as we have already applied. This is on top of the PCV that added another $1000 or so to the smart wiring as they had that wrong originally too.
It's so frustrating!! We have the money for this, but were hoping to use this money to pay for driveway/fencing/furniture etc ARGH
If they have signed the contract with the 6K saving - they have to honour it. I would play hardball with them... This would be like saying the base price has changed since the contract was signed and you need to just live with it - not good enough.
If I was in your position I would not accept this and tell them that they need to honour the contract.
My 2 cents anyway
I agree with Alpal. We had a similar situation where we had upgraded our bricks and at Tender the price charged was around $2K less because of a typo on PD's part and we thought we had to pay up but the administrator said that as it was in the contract they have to honour it and we were only charged $200 for the brick upgrade. I'd be telling PD that you won't be paying because it's in the contract. It goes both ways. We aren't allow to change anything after signing so the same standard should apply to them.
Good luck and let us know how you go.
