Did you know we are regularly asked to look at new-build homes and carry out a property inspection? This is because the purchasers of the new home are not happy with the standard of work, yet they are told on-site by the builders (how do you know they are qualified builders – have they proved it?) that these items will be addressed later.

No, no, no, no, no! You do not buy a brand new car with a wheel missing and accept that when you have had it a few weeks they will come and fit the missing wheel.

New-build houses should be virtually perfect. There is no excuse for poor workmanship, but it is becoming a common type of inspection – buyer beware!
