2. UNDERMINING OF NEIGHBOURING PROPERTIES:
a) The fixed site cost offer does not include cost associated with undermining of neighbouring properties. These costs will be outlined once engineering has been completed & any additional costs will be charged to the client by way of variation to the building owner.

3. CONDITION OF SITE:
a) The subject allotment is not to have or ever had any structure existing or previously existed thereon, except for boundary fencing.

4. DEVELOPER'S ENGINEERING:
This offer has been based on developers engineering information available at the time. Once the subdivision is complete, the builder will arrange a geotechnical report and contour survey. If the findings are discrepant with the original engineering information, or where the subject Developer has varied levels and conditions to those depicted on the engineering plan of subdivision provided with the land contract, the builder reserves the right to review the site/foundation costs. Based on findings of this review the builder may decide to offer a revised fixed site offer, or render this agreement Null and Void.
