/ Building a house in Poland need advice from anyone that has built
Wow you are brave, I am English and lived in Poland 6 years now, have done around 5 building and renovation projects around the Kujavia Pomorski region.
Best advice never ever part with any money up front regardless, walk away if they insist. If you buy materials make sure you get the faktura in your name with your NIP number on it as you can claim the VAT back later well a percentage anyway.
Always always make the person or company sign a reciept for any money paid regardless of any excuses. Live on site if possible and watch them closely. I am thinking of writing a book on what has happend to me here and other peoples experiences with builders. A friend was quoted 700,000 zloty to build a complete house, everything all the installations the lot.
Two years later he has the shell of the house and is minus 700,000 zloty and is broke and going to return to England.........a common story. If you are doing anything up around our way give me a call 698 295 117 for a chat, Steve
