We have a dilemma and would like some advise.
Before starting our house our builder asked where we wanted the draws in the kitchen and bathroom cabinets, which we sketched and emailed. Then as the cabinets were going in they sent us a variation of $1600 for 'additional draws'. We protested that the schedule lists draws and nothing had changed since our sketch. They said they forgot to price them so we simply didn't sign the variation (which is required as per the contract)
Friday this week is our hand over (1 month early to the contract date) so I've been requesting our final payment since last week which I finally got emailed today (Wednesday) and low and behold they have added the $1600.
We have our carpet layer and timber floor people coming next week and we gave notice on our rental.
What do I do? I have a call with the builders director but I suspect he'll say pay or no keys.
