Thanks for your detailed reply. Yes it is a residential house. At the moment the roof isnt sealed or painted so I may look into this first in a bit more detail and see what options there are. Do you have any recommendations of tradies in Brisbane that could assist with this?
I have an old 1950’s property in Brisbane which has had a leak from the roof during the recent storms a few months back. A builder has gone onsite and advised that the leak is caused by a cracked ridge and hip bedding. As Im looking to eventually demolish the property in maybe 5 years time, is there any way to repair this without having to replace…[Read more]
Thanks Allycat. I guess Ill just have to try one and see how they go ensuring that I have a clause in the contract stating that I can change if im not happy with them.

What if I decide not to settle and wait for the bank to get the title deeds? Can the vendor cancel the contract or anything? Ive already forked out the money for the deposit and also for the bank fees,…[Read more]

Thanks guys. I spoke to the electricial directly this morning rather then going through the PM so I could get the full story. Apparently the person who did it did a really dodgy job. From what he said the transformers are the incorrect ones used, the wiring used is the incorrect wiring and many of the lights are wires are loose being a hazard. He…[Read more]
Thanks for the input guys. Im in Melbourne so if anyone can recommend some good cheap places for goods that woudl be greatly appreciated. The apartment is approx 60sq meters.
