Default i need your support to take down a dodgy builder

Hi guys,

Im currently going through a legal battle with a builder who has taken my money and built a defective house with it.
We purchased the land in 2012 and started the build in 2013. Since then its been a nightmare, the house is still not complete and still in contract. We have have inspectors go through the property to find the foundation's are 100% defective and all the paper work is up the creek with it as the builder supplied a fake soil test as we had our own.
The builder is a franchise builder with one of the largest builders in australia. We are currently going through vcat to try and stop this guy and reclaim our future. We are trying to raise the funds for our legal team to proceed any further. We have until the 31st to get $12000 to continue. We are reaching out for any support at all. Here is a link to our campaign with a little more info.
Thanks

I've been in touch with them but they just want to throw it on tv and then i can be stuck with a deformation case that take a long time through court to prove im right. I've been in contact with a student journalist who i want her to do the story so it can help with her career. Shes been intouch with a respected investigational journalists who i hope will be able to shed some light on my suspicions that the builder using my funds to fund his own build.

There can be no deformation if all your facts are correct. Even a small win for you can be a big fail for them. Once the ball is rolling, watch all their engineers and supervisors disappear. Start small and finnish big.

Thats right. Well at the moment the authority are investigating the builder and building surveyor, afterwards id say the engineer. The soil test guy wont get looked at because in the report he supplied it said "if more than 200mm of excavation a second soil test will be needed" where the cut was 1200mm without another soil test. These people are not smart at all with there paper trail as i done all communication through email incase this happened so i have them admitting to giving us quotes with out suppliers, they were carrying out unauthorized variations and the contract is up the sh#t with the soil test for the engineering being done on the same day as the plans were finished and energy rating was done, 3 months after they quoted us the build and i supplied our soil test 1 month prior. And as for the engineer the original drawings missed 6 structural beams dated 6/13 and add them into the revision when the house was restumped in 8/15.

Have you spoken with the franchise company? They may assist you to avoid their name being tarnished by this dodgy builder.

So with the franchise company they have been sitting on this the whole time. My honest opinion is that there waiting to see if i go bankrupt before the hearing. I have until next week to have all my documents in and if i dont have them in im stuffed. I have a really good team but im struggling with the amount of money they want. Even though once this comes out in the media its going to be massive for them. Its just getting there which is hard.

Issues with foundations with volume builders are nothing new. They do everything to the absolute minimum required.

Good luck with your case. It can be extremely slow, expensive and frustrating to get anywhere.
