    We will send you the job leads that match your specified work area and trade that will include the job description, estimated budget and postcode. The price of a job lead is clearly displayed on each lead page. Each fee is calculated based on the likely size and value of the job.

Once you buy the lead, we will provide you with the necessary information for you to contact the Builder/Contractor to apply for job.

Builder/Contractor are free to select whom they like or even not to proceed with any particular job.
