    Hi there,

    I’m new here, just received keys to my apartment which is a brand new build. I’ve started snagging and it feels endless. It feels like its been used as a showhome. Theres damage, wear and tear and and endless list of scrapes, scratches and other defects.

    The showhome was the apartment below mine. I noticed as we entered the door was grubby with marks all over it whereas a neighbours door still had protective covering on the handles and peep holes. No protective covering throughout the apartment either.

    Has anyone had experience of this before? Any suggestions on what I can do? Or am I just lumped with having to do an exhaustive snagging list and being unhappy that prospective buyers have been trudging around my flat or worse its been used for something else.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Regards,

    A very disgruntled first time buyer

    Hi

    An all too common story... Get your list back to them as soon as you can... You have a golden window at the moment.. The longer you leave things the harder it will be to prove abd to get things done

    Good luck
