Left In The Lurch For Csc...

Recommended Posts

Hi, my contractor has left us in a lurch. He did not complete our CSC. Also, water is seeping through the back yard.

I called the Architect but it seems like he is also gone. :dunno:

I need advise on how should I proceed...

Tried calling the Building Plan Department, only can left message but no one call back.

Do I need a new Architect? On an estimate, how much do I need to pay?

Hi Serene,

Two of my neighbours had a similar experience like you and I assisted them. Looks like your case is one of inferior quality construction cum contractor running away. You will need to spend some money to do the following:

(1) Investigate what is wrong with the construction works. More defects may show up later. This is a common problem for many homeowners who rebuild their house with inferior quality materials and poor hands on supervision. Rectification of poor workmanship and replacement of inferior quality materials may be high. Hence, would have to study into what are the defects before thinking of alternative solutions to replacement.

(2) If you have got your TOP already and CSC is not given, it could mean that there are some works outstanding, usually external works. You will need to hire an architect to help you with the submission of document and get a contractor to make good the outstanding works.

Can't estimate the cost, until you are able to furnish more details. If the contractor is still around, best to persuade him to complete the works. If that is impossible, I guess you probably have to take legal recourse to recover your losses, provided the contractor is able to pay damages and you are able to challenge this successfully in Court.

If you wish to share privately with me, you can pm me your contact and email address. It sometimes pain me to know that forumers try to save on small amounts of money in construction and end up with big inferior construction quality.

Usually architect will stay around since you hired them. Is yours design and build? If so contractor hired architect. If one gone the other will follow. You can try contacting them directly if you need help with the submissions etc.

For my case, my engineer was liaising with various departments for the CSC. Not sure if only the architect can do the submissions or if it can be anyone else.

You can also check with NParks and BCA on what are the outstanding reifications on your property and once you know what else is left to do, contact contractors for quote on what it will take to rectify those areas.

Depending on complexity, QP engineer can also do the submission for you. For more complex works, you will need the architect's help.
