We have moved into a nearly new house, first owners had it for jsut over a year.
Since I have never owned a new house, I'm not sure whats to be accepted or not.
I read that there is a 10year NHBC along with that the builder is responsible for 2 years.
I have heard of some problems with other houses nearby and I notice the builder in a few houses.
I have already had to get the window company out as they were not catching on the way out so they always opened right out, not safe upstairs with a climbing child.
Alll they did was bend the catches so the caught!
Also the front door was catching, that has been adjusted but weeks later its catching elsewhere.
There is quite bad cracking around the door area, also around some of the windows, quite a few nail/screw pops.
I'm told the nail/screw pops are normal, there are some large ones on the stairs, also long lines as if the wood is forced against the plasterboard.
What is deemed acceptable and is this anything to worry about and push the builders/developers on.
