My question involves a condominium located in the State of: NY
I purchased a condo unit a few months ago in a building that is new construction. After closing, I noticed that the bathtub was installed backwards making it very uncomfortable to take a bath because the bathtub is designed so that you lie in a certain direction, and the faucet is right where your head is supposed to be.
I called the developer (who is still the managing agent), and he is blaming it on a beam underneath the tub and that the plumbers had to install it this way because of this beam. When I press him about the architectural plans, he admits that the tub wasn't installed according to the architectural plans, but that it cannot be fixed, and he refuses to share the plans with me. I think that it's more of a matter of him not wanting to fix it for whatever reason, than it not being possible to fix.
He has offered me a sum of money as a settlement but I feel that the amount is too small. I'm wondering if I'm legally entitled to a tub that's installed properly, and if I take legal action against him, if I have a strong case.
Thank you for any help.
