Thank you for the query. This is really a contactual matter. You have purchased a house based on what you were told about the layout. So if this is being changed or you are not being given what you were led to believe you were buying then you could potentially have a claim abasing them as this is what we call misrepresentation of a contract. However, if you are to raise a claim against them then I would strongly advise instructing a solicitor and I will provide you a useful link to find someone who is local to you. Prior to raising legal action, you will want to approach the builder and raise the issue officially with them and see this through to exhaustion. If you are not given a reasonable resolution then at that point you could look at raising legal action against them. However, you should always try to resolve matters formally yourself before you raise legal action as this will show you in a better light to the court. Ensure that you keep any evidence you have (such as the original house description etc.) and a copy of all correspondences you send and receive in relation to the matter as these will all go in your favour when building a claim if needed.
