Hi, We had a house built in Brisbane early 2013 using a standard HIA building contract. At the final inspection we disagreed about the colour of the security screens. Our contract clearly states screen colour. HIA advised that screen colour was insufficient reason to withhold final payment, so we paid and made a note under "Defects not agreed on" at handover. We are preparing to go to QCAT and ask them to resolve the complaint. Both parties should represent themselves at the tribunal. My question is:- If we fail in our quest to have the screens changed, can the builder seek compensation for costs over the action?
