    Completing outstanding work on new build property

    Completing outstanding work on new build property 16th Mar 17 at 6:43 PM
    Can anyone advise me on how to get the property developer to complete outstanding work.
    We have been in our new build for two years and are struggling to get the developers to complete the work.

    Do we have anyway of forcing the company to complete the work ? Any advise would be welcome.

    not sure there is anyway to force them but they dont like it if you start highlighting their deficiencies on social media. I'm sure bovis homes amongst others have come in for some stick recently.

    It is difficult to get developers to come back to complete work and deal with issues after you have moved in. I would just keep nagging at them or go speak to the site manager directly if their is still work going on or email their head office. I am sure you may have tried these already but thought Id throw it out there.

    Can you give an indication as to what remains to be done?

    Why did the developer complete on the sale of the property if it was not finished? Are you talking about snags or something more substantial?

    You should have a two year warranty from the developer to make good any defects.
