picture this, new house being built on the block next to mine.
went over to meet the guy. Seemed to be a nice guy as we chatted for about an hour. He is a builder building his own place.
I am in a wheelchair so it was difficult to get around on my building site to check different things. I rely on the wife to answer alot of questions.
She says it looks like he is started building his place pretty much on the boundary. I said take abit of video footage and i watch it at home. It looked for certain that he was very close and when i asked him he swore that his setout was correct.
So 4 months later his place is finished and my place was about a month from complesion.
I have a surveyor friend and i get him to shoot some lines and it turns out that his eave is 28cm over my boundary.
When i investergate it turns out that he did his own house setout instead of using a licenced surveyor.
Rang the council and they don't want to know about it.
I am trying to find who his certifyer was.
I can see this is going to get messy.
