I'm building three town houses, I was wondering is it the builders responsibility to provide garden sheds or the owners?
It's a basic HIA contract in Vic (heavily in the builders fav) and the specifications list nothing of the matter.
Though the builder is doing the landscaping (it's on the landscape plan as well as the building permit plans).
The builder has asked me to provide them, as it's part of the occupancy permit should the builder do it or is it my responsibility? Or should the landscaper at least provide the base for them?
Interested to hear the Internets thoughts.
The builder has also asked for a 5 week extension and only provided one LPD as opposed to the two as per the plans & engineering...

Hmm, one issue I have is the builder has put water and gas point and a bigger hot water system then what’s in the plans so, I’m going to struggle to get a 6cube shed in there. I feel like it’s becoming an impossible task.
As it’s a requirement for the occupancy certificate...

Good to hear Bansi. Its unfortunate that you couldn't negotiate the builder to cover all the costs, but its no big deal. A good outcome overall i think. Goodluck.
