We bought a Persimmon Home just over 2 years ago.
Right from the start we had 180 snags.
Called in the NHBC who sent an incompitant inspector (tried to use a spirit level on a stippled cealing) who refused to enforce his companys own standards and sided with the builder.
We subsequently found out that the house is non compliant to Building Regs (guess who was Building Controls, thats right NHBC). Both Persimmon and NHBC have refused to do anything about it.
Contacted the Construction Industry Council who regulate Building Control Bodies who have also declined to get involved.
The result is we have a house that is legally defective and no one will do anything about it.
It is obvious that house builders can construct what they like and are protected by a closed shop.
