Hello, thank you for your question. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I can assist you with your question.
hi Tony :)
Hello! Okay... did you buy off plan?
No, we bought after the house was built, the car port is built to the measurements but due to interior wood and fencing and brick on both sides it is not accessible, they have confirmed this to us
Okay. I'm trying to work out where the legal liability rests you see. The issue is whether they have built to what you agreed, and it sounds like they have.
Can I just check: did you inspect the carport once built and agree to buy anyway?
Yeah and that is what they are saying, they say they have delivered a car port as described and it is up to us whether we choose to keep a car in it, hence it is call a car port! :) we didn't think to have to check the carport, they told us on the day after we had completed, as we picked up the keys
Okay, well, legally, I expect they're right then I'm afraid to say.
If you inspected it, and they made no specific promises to get a car in it (despite what it's called), then all purchases of property re based on "caveat emptor" - let the buyer beware.
Oh that is a shame :( I guess I have to agree to the remedial work and hope for the best then :(
It does sound like it I'm afraid :(
okay, well at least I know, thanks very much for your help Tony :) PS never buy a house with a car port :)
