We have a slab! our independent inspector was there for a prepour and fixed a number of issues which DJM did not fix, apparently DJM inspector who was on site was feeling a bit annoyed .. as if I care ..
Word of advice if you can ....pick your own building surveyor .. we regret not doing it ..
Hi Manj - congrats on your progress! Can I ask what you mean by pick your own building surveyer - is there an inspector as well as a surveyer? Are they different roles? And does Arden allow you to pick the inspector?thanks
Thanks treedance .. the builder requires a building surveyor, he’s the one who issues the building permit, signs off certain stages of the build etc. most builders use DJM, however, since recently home owners can select their building surveyor (additional cost etc on top of build)
The independent building inspector is someone we have hired to look into all stages of the build for us since we aren’t privy to the building code ..
I’m guessing you feel DJM have done a poor job - have you since heard there are others that are better? Are DJM ‘in the builder’s pocket’, as such?[/quote]
Not sure about other building surveyors treedance .. you could also appoint a council building surveyor .. I only found out about that quite late into the process
