Expert:  Brisbane-Lawyer replied 6 years ago.
The definition of practical completion will be found in the contract the works commenced under.
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
The contract is governed by AS 2124, it does not give the definition of "practical completion", as an engineer I do not accept your answer.
Expert:  Brisbane-Lawyer replied 6 years ago.
My answer is not complete yet.

Can you please scan the contract and attach it?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.

Alex, I would like an answer. On the basis that Just Answer informed me my deposit was being refunded I paid another deposit today, hopefully this time I may get a result.

I used to work for a construction law practice so I am familiar with the area of law, however, I no longer have access to AS contracts.

As such, it would be helpful if you could please scan the AS contract and all related schedules and special terms so I can have a look.

At that stage I would be better able see if I can help you with this.

Customer: replied 6 years ago.

I do have a scanned copy of the AS-2124 in PDF format but have been unable to attach it to our response. Please advise how your would like to receive this document.

Please try the following:

First type some text, anything - just a few words. Then highlight the words with your mouse.

Once you have done that, click the chain icon between the happy smiley face and the tree.

A pop up window will open. The first line should say Link URL. At the end of it there is a little square icon with a blue line at the top.

Click it and an attachment upload box will pop up.
