I've been wondering, some of the plans we've been looking at with different builders have items that are not listed in their inclusions i.e a sink in butlers pantry. My question therefore is if this item is on the final drawings, does that mean the builder has to include it? I'm weary of asking sales people because they'll usually say no and then add it in as an "upgrade" so I wouldn't want to pay for something that is already included (We've had quotes with doubled up items so I wouldn't trust their systems)

One reason a pre contract inspection is a must,can find mistakes, overcharges, unfair contract clause,tell you with legal certainty what's included,also puts builder on notice,your loaded with knowledge,look at building experts website, good luck.

Generally specification trumps drawings, however the specification isn't going to mention things not included, only inclusions. So if it is on your final drawings in your contract they have to provide it. That said when we found inconsistencies and it was an item we really wanted we always asked just be sure we weren't going to be disappointed.
