Building Complaints

I have sent 8 emails to seeff concerning various faults in my premises, concerns about the expiration of my current lease, and confirmation for my new leas also from Seeff of which i have received no feedback on in 16 days. I have had a broken shower for 14 days, emailed twice and called twice. I haven't received any written confirmation of expiration of my current lease or acceptance of my new leas, none of my queries concerning the vacating of my premises.

I ordered a kitchen with granite tops from Builders on 15 December 2017. I had to immediately pay as no work will start without payment.Then it started. The measurements that Builders came and took personally at my house did not match the kitchen design, so we had to add another R 12000.00 that had to be paid immediately. We had to move plugs etc as when installation takes place everything has to be perfect. Then the cupboards arrived in January, no granite. We were told that it is different...

These builders are serious con artists and have literally robbed us of more than R50 000 that was meant for materials. They also employed a plumber than was not qualified, we ended up having to replace all, roof sheeting was incorrectly installed...the list goes on. Run when you meet them!

Product installed incorrectly. Spoke to numerous people at the company about the problem, then they just hand me over for legal action for outstanding money. Product wasn't installed at all as promised, left me with problems that I had to get another contractor to fix. Even after phoning and explaining my problem again, all I was promised was that someone will phone me back, but once again nobody did - surprise surprise. Will not EVER recommend this company to anyone EVER.

If you have an insurance claim via Outsurance in Rustenburg please be warned. They used Noordwes Construction for a claim that I have submitted. It has been two weeks and Noordwes still has not done the work as Outsurance paid me and not them. According to the company I am now a private job and their other insurance claims are more important. It does not help to phone them as they do not return calls.

My mother-in-law has paid a deposit of 50% to Bettapod to build a granny flat. They promised that they would start the following day. After 2 months, they started delivering material to start a foundation. They have finished half a foundation and now am waiting for more material. Promise to deliver the next day is resulting into two weeks without delivery. They come to the "site" once in a blue moon just to pacify - making empty promises. At this rate, the promised 6 weeks to complete is...
