Hello, I am in a building contract, and the completion date (confirmed by the builder) is in less than a week. The builder has issued me a letter stating that it is an extension of contract, and provided me with an 'estimated completion date' that is ten weeks away. I am wondering if this is normal practice, or should I be asking the builder to provide me with a second contract with the new completion date written into it? Is there a way I can ask/write in the contract to get compensation if the builder goes over the new (estimated) completion date? Currently there is nothing that automatically grants me compensation in the contract. As I'm sure you can understand, I am worried that they will be able to keep issuing me with a letter with an estimated completion date - as their track record with this build has been incredibly slow. PS - Edited to add that I found in the HIA contract something that may stand in my way... The Builder shall give to the Owner a notice of any extension of time to which the Builder is entitled within TWENTY (20) working days of the Builder being aware of the cause and the extent of the delay. But does this mean from the end of the completion date time? Or should they have made me aware earlier?
