    they take your money and dont care afterwards . keep calling and pestering them and nhbc . personally if i was you i would sell up. no offence but new builds are like dolls houses not built to last . better off in a older house . better build quality larger rooms etc. not victorian though most cost a fortune to maintain. which development are you on

    My advice would be to keep on writing to complain and keep a record of your letters.
    My website has template letters that may help you.

    3.5 years is now outside the Gladadale responsibility NHBC warranty and unless you have previously complained inside the two years they are not required to do anything under the warranty. The remainder of the Buildmark warranty is for major strucral defects only.

    I agree with Cheeil, New Homes have far too many disadvantages, it never ceases to amaze me that people still buy them.

    Most who do have no other choice. There are not enough second hand homes on the market. My area has 43 homes for sale, but hundreds from three developers.

    There is always a choice.
    Why buy something badly-built, too small and overpriced just to stay in an area or get on the property ladder?

    Staying in an area is dictated by employment/schools/families, its not so easy to move from an area.

    Where there's a will there's a way.
    The easy option in most things in life is doing nothing and complaining!
