I forgot to mention that our BAL rating has been confirmed as a BAL19. so we get a little cost saving on that,, although not as big as i thought. EBH had only added approx 9k for BAL29 and 7k for the BAL19 and 5k if it was to be a 12.5. So we only get approx 2k back - better than nothing that might be all we need to pay for our tile upgrade.
The bushfire consultant "michael" that i have been dealing with has been fantastic. Answered all my questions with no hassles and a pleasure to deal with. Would highly reccomend him if anyone is looking for a BPAD. He is located in Emu Plains his business is "Bushfire Management Consultants"
