    Charles Church won't let us snag before completion

    Also before completion the home will be full of snaggs because it's not finished. It would prob just be a waste of time and money aswell because you would need to do it again post handover anyway.... Yes, it's 'normal' practice to complete all snagging post handover. Clare

    Charles Church won't let us snag before completion

    Generally builders wont grant any access untill Habitation and CML are granted (mine didnt anyway)... but bare in mind you have 2years to bring up snags... (but i would make sure all your snags are in writing and you have something from the that acknowledges the receipt of the snaggin list)...

    wall structure help needed

    It's a really good point but it could be an extremely tough battle... your best/ and cheapest bet is to span a bit of wood between the two studs where you will be putting the gate and you can either fix the gate to that or it can take the pressure. If they have fully complied with the standards...

    wall structure help needed

    i thought you said they will fix it...? I would really look at the thickness and quality of the plaster board used like nem39esis said- You might be able to get them with that... ask NHBC what the standards are for plasterboard.

    Uneven floor and suspect wiring & pipework

    I toally agree with Nem39esis- shoddy!! With the movement in the flooring the sheath on the cables WILL wear away in time... (builders cutting corners again)- I'm suprised they didnt put a nail through one of the wires! Have a look at this, It's the technical guide from the NHBC, this will...

    wall structure help needed

    If It wasnt their fault then why did they come the 'fix' it in the first place! Really, they've made the problem worse and caused a bigger bigger than the one they tried to fix and they accepted fault in the first instance... I'm not all up on the contracts but there must be something to back...

    Aberdeenshire Newmachar-what a joke!

    hi again, Yeah Trisha- she doesnt like me... she will never take calls and knows sweet FA about construction. I would keep fighting them if you want to stick with the property. Out of interest, have they given you the option to pull out? I had been denied any more information than 'we are...
