New Zealand is a nation of DIY’ers. We love to add value! And, not surprisingly, there are a fair number of us who also love shortcuts. Weren’t rules made to be broken?
“The job has been done properly – we just didn’t want to pay the Council cut.”
“We were told about this when we bought. It didn’t bother us. It won’t bother our buyers.”
“The buyers can take it or leave it. It’s not our problem.”
