I have what may seem to be a dumb question.
So when you get to the end of a build and things pop up in the maintenance period, what sort of things can you get fixed? Leaky taps? Blocked toilets? Water hammer? Handles coming off a cupboard? Sticky windows?
And does this extend to the full 7 year period covered by the builder's insurance? If not, what sort of things are covered after the maintenance period?
Thanks in advance!

Im just about to fill in for my 6months maintanance will be interesting what they think is covered
Grout cracking /fulling out .
Doors cracking / flacking at the bottom from builder not painting bottom of doors
Im guessing things that got missed at handover that builder thinks comes under maintenance
Never take no as answer but sonetimes pick which ones are worth fighting for and right things down even if you think it isnt maintenance you never know .
my builder told me if things get picked up later is it wont be fixed . But I turned around and said by law we have 7 years workmanship . Obversly if one piece of grout comes out we probley wouldnt call them .she was kinda surprised I said that .got to be one step ahead of these builders

Thanks melsie. Yeah they put so much stock in the maintenance period thing but seem to forget about the 7 year thing. Hence my question.
