[PropertyInfo.030] Charlie's sad story

There's this sad story from Sydney Morning Herald yesterday about a Cabramatta bus driver who has dispute with his builder and has been living in caraven since 2002.

According to the article "the ground was never compacted and no slab laid", and "the right side of the house starting to sink into the earth".

Although this is only one side of the story, would be interested to see how can the builder explain how did the house pass the council engineering inspection on the slab stage before laying the bricks.

It's always sad to see stories like this happening, just wonder if Charlie had inspected the house with a private inspector much earlier, it would be much easier to pick up any problem and much cheaper to fix.
