Defects in new properties

Defects in New Properties

During their first year, new homes often need small repairs which are known as defects. The 12 month defects liability period starts from the time the builder hands over the completed home to Inquilab, not from the date you move in.

A defect is the responsibility of the builder, but it still needs to be reported to Inquilab. Please make it clear that you are reporting a defect in a new property so we can arrange for the right contractor to carry out the work.

If white goods, such as a fridge, cooker and washing machine,were already installed when you moved in and one of these is faulty, please check the manufacturer’s warranty as they are not the builder’s responsibility.
