Maintenance Inspection

I have just finished with my 13 week maintenance inspection (6 weeks late). I was armed with photos of issues so that I was as quick & efficient as possible. In hindsight, I should have ordered them so that all top floor ones were together, bottom floor, outside ones etc. Jason, the maintenance supervisor, was a pleasure to deal with and I am happy to report that all 45 items on my list will be dealt with by the external company MJH.
So just as we were celebrating the end of tradesmen being around, here we go again!!

Maintenance inspection

This past week has seen the 13 week inspection date come and go! Eden Brae are not able to get the Supervisor out until early March. Whoa! To be honest, I wasn't bothered at all which I think surprised my CSA. For me, it means an extra 6 weeks for issues to arise that may get fixed. Once your list has been agreed on with your supervisor, nothing can be added. I seen the delay as being a win then. The items I have contacted Eden Brae about since settlement have been IMMEDIATELY acted uon. So far no fault at all with after sales customer service eg. toilet cistern, kitchen mixer tap. I initially had items listed here on the blog (straight after settlement)  that would have come up at this maintenance inspection but Troy came straight around and fixed most of them up himself. Here are the things that I will be discussing with Jason, the Maintenance Supervisor.

More things for the 3 month check

Just wanting to keep a visual list of things to raise when we have our 3 month check in January. Here are some more issues to add to it. My personal favourite is the stairway wall, most visible in the morning sun.

Ooops! Hole was cut too big.

Anyone else see the bubbles and the timber behind?

Looking good, eh?!

Very obvious and only just appeared. Nothing in the bathroom capable of doing that so my guess is it was done by a tradie and they tried to patch it unsuccessfully.

Vanity pop-up waste won't depress

A log of some minor issues that I have found so far

Continuing on from my aim to keep this as a log of the good and the not-so-good, I thought I would post photos of some things I have found so far that I would like to bring up at our 13 week maintenance inspection. These are issues that should have been picked up at PCI but weren't or have occurred since then.
