Hi,

How does one get the keys? Does the developer call you? Or send a letter?
Or you call the developer?

Thanks Colourbox.

It sounds like the developer's lawyer will inform via mail to go down to One Amber to collect the keys?

Does anyone which stack and which floor they have released the keys yet? I am getting a unit in Stack 22.

I heard that they do it in batches and I have seen an agent's photo of the inside of units with some that are in my stack.

Or is it only after we have paid the progressive payment for the TOP that the lawyer will contact us?

can only collect keys after the payment is made, also survey fees and usually 6 months maintenance fees

Finish:
  • marble flooring, tiling etc looks ok. On first impression hardly any defects.
  • painting as expected
  • wooden flooring: major defects. we are going to ask the developer to rip it all out and redo it from scratch. Seems like water damage: get the impression flooring was done before windows were completed and incoming rain damaged the wood. In our previous house we had wooden floor from same sub-contractor and that one was a 1000 times better. This will delay our moving in and is going to be a problem.
  • windows: in general ok, but handles have a lot of paint chips off and seem to be poor quality. Going to report this big time on defect checklist.
  • kitchen cabinents: probably as expected. We were planning to revamp the kitchen cabinets anyway as we were not expecting too much. Drawer rails and hinges a Blum Bluemotion, but woodwork is all locally made. Was expecting the full drawer from Blum with only front panel locally made, not only rails.

Appliances:
  • Bosch oven, hood. Bosch ceramic 2 pit hob in dry kitchen. Bosch 3 pit gas hob in wet kitchen.
  • Joven electric storeage heater - handover checklist says Gas Storage water heater as says the purchase contract. Need to sort that out on Monday.
Nothing which was not on the contract. One major problem for me: space for Fridge is 89cm wide and my current fridge is 90 cm wide

Going to do detail check for defect reporting tomorrow. Will be a long list (as expected).

Need to invest in curtains so I can not see neighbours and neighbours can not see me

That's not good. Electric heaters are more expensive to use than gas heaters.
Different units may have diff heaters, according to their table of specs. And gas heaters are not possible if your bathrooms are far from the kitchen. Maybe they did not do the handover checklist properly?

Aside from the water damage, I noticed that alot of units had very bad gaps in the flooring. Hopefully they are willing to replace your flooring rather than just polish / grind it away. It can only be ground a limited number of times.

I've been into many units before during the construction period. I guess the most unsatisfactory thing is the flooring. Most units had it very bad. The kitchen cabinet quality is the second worst. The little dustbin inside the cabinet door also probably doesn't work.

One more thing- check your bathroom tiles. Alot of units had big gaps, esp where the ledge to put soap is. This will get dirty with time.

Also, check whether your household shelter door can close.
