Tell me about it... I'm two days away from PCI with no certificate of occupancy, no idea what is expected of me on Thursday, and apparently I'm expected to be ready for handover next week. My BC isn't answering my emails (except with one form-letter that caused more confusion than anything else), perhaps because she's upset that I'm not happy with her (or PD's) performance. I'm sorry, but neither of my BCs have been much help - maybe I'm misinterpreting their role in all of this and it's somebody else I should be upset with but she dodges my questions about who is actually responsible.
Maybe all builders are like this, but I have to say this is the most stressful thing I've done in years. For the money I'm spending I really expected a higher degree of organisation and quality. It's a shame they've ignored my pleas for somebody to check that their sub-contractors are all working off the right drawings or this last phase would have been so much easier. Instead now they're busy fixing these mistakes instead of finishing off my house. PCI can't include electrical because of this, which strikes me as unfair on me (I told them they were using the wrong plans months ago).
The bank is refusing to even book in their valuation inspection without the right paperwork from PD and yet somehow I suspect it'll become my problem to find a way around their shortfall next week when handover comes along. Not that handover seems likely for next week, I doubt they'll have everything lined up in time.
Thankfully I held back on cancelling my current lease but I still have removalists, curtain installations, driveway, insurance, time off work and all sorts of other things lined up to make next week a possibility. All for nothing if they don't get their act together in the next day or two. I hate to think of how much money this delay will cost me
Frustrating is an understatement. That whole "respect the dream" tagline seems particularly offensive lately.
I'm sorry to hear your experience is also terrible
I understand your stress, I hate going to the house I am over the whole thing.
Every builder is not like this, when people hear about the problems we have had and the time it has taken, they are in absolute shock! As soon as you sign the contract you are just a number not a person.
I wish you all the best for the next few weeks
