Just like to know for those who have built a new house, and reached your two year milestone did you go back to the builder and present another list of defects?
I understand that the 24 month warranty period covers certain non structural aspects of the building , i cant seem to find exactly what the 2 year warranty covers .
I know its 6 years for major defects and 2 years for all other defects based on the NSW fair trading site, just want some clarity .
Im about 6 months off the 2 year mark
I noticed 2 crack tiles just after the 3 month defect period however builder refuses to fix these as i reported it too late, but im sure i read cracking of tiles is covered within the 2 year period, I can see the nail butts slightly protruding in some areas on the walls , small cracks in ceilings near the edges.
