My question involves a consumer law issue in the State of: NC
My builder was given a list of things that had to be repair prior to closing last year November 2010. She responded that "in a few weeks well schedule the rest of the repairs." One item was completed, the rest were not.
I have significant ponding in the front yard. Autumn, particularly November is the driest season. I had no idea that my yard, sidewalk, and driveway would flood. This became apparent in the major storms in the spring. There are numerous problems with siding incorrectly installed, the slab has major cracks, the tubs and showers are not sealed properly.
Last month, October 2011, I had a home inspection completed and sent the recommendations to the builder. My home warranty expires 11/18/2011.
First, she responded that "we'll schedule the appointments." A week later she stated that her "foreperson" would review the list and determine if they would fix the items found by the inspection. I've not heard back from them. Of course, they never fixed the things that they were supposed to fix in the first place, now they don't want to fix the items that were found this year.
Because, I stupidly did not have the inspection done before closing (yes, I was stupid for assuming a new home would not have problems), do I have a leg to stand on?
Apparently, they do not want to fix these problems. Do I have to take them to court?
Thank you for your time!
