This is what is difficult. Total adds up but it’s whether we are getting a fair deal . Some of the costs are totally unreasonable. 4K for painting and alarms . I know a couple of other people in the same position but they also feel helpless.
If we can get everyone working together then we may get somewhere.
If the cost of materials are much higher than normal obviously we should be able to question why . We should be able to get independent quote from a third party to compare whether what we are paying is fair.
