Should a warranted problem arise after you move in, the builder is
likely to have a set of warranty service procedures to follow. Except in emergencies, requests for service should be in writing. This
helps to ensure that everyone clearly understands the service to be
performed.

Builder Visits During the Year

Many builders schedule two visits during the first year - one near
the beginning and the other near the end - to make necessary
adjustments and to perform work of a non-emergency nature. Don't
expect a builder to rush out immediately for a problem such as a nail
pop in your drywall. Such problems occur because of the natural
settling of the house and are best addressed in one visit near the end
of the first year.

Your Inspection Checklist

Create a checklist when inspecting the house. The list should include
everything that needs attention, and you and your builder should
agree to a timetable for repairs. Builders prefer to remedy problems
before you move in because it is easier to work in an empty house.
Some items may have to be corrected after move-in. For instance, if
your walk-through is in the winter, your builder may have to delay
landscaping adjustments until spring.

It is important that you be thorough and observant
during the walk-through. Carefully examine all
surfaces of counters, fixtures, floors, and walls for
possible damage. Sometimes disputes arise because
a buyer may discover a gouge in a counter top after
move-in, and there is no way to prove whether it was
caused by the builder's workers or the buyer's movers.
Many builders ask their buyers to sign a form at the
walk-through stating that all surfaces have been inspected and that there is no damage other than what
has been noted on the walk-through checklist.
Ask a lot of questions during the walk-through and
take notes on the answers. Don't worry about asking
too many questions. That is how you learn. It is
important to view the walk-through as a positive
learning experience that will enhance the enjoyment
of your new home.
