We have the entire ground floor in our new build tiled. We had noticed a some areas where there were slight elevations and depressions in comparison to the surrounding tiles in our kitchen dining area.

If there a 'slight' differences you probably find the tiling is within 'tolerance' if the builder tiled the house they will follow the standard set by the building warranty company (eg NHBC). However if you paid for the tiling to be done privately, then this would be a different matter since the quality and workmanship would be for you to agree as part contracting the work.

Start by contacting the builder if you contracted the work through them, and ask them to cover this under the remedial works due to poor workmanship, you will then need to mark each tile affected so they can be easily identified using sticky notes or dry marker on the tiles is normally easiest. The builder will send someone round who will look at the quality of works and advise if this will be addressed at their cost.

Where using a private contractor I would call them back and ask them what they plan to do, and see if they dispute the quality of their work.

If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to ask them!
