Reply To: 95% of new Spanish houses have defects


Is the UK really relevant! even if things are bad there too it doesn’t change the fact of the topic…95% of spanish build have defects. When the whole article is read included in these defects are less m2 than contract and inferior materials, not exactly snagging are they 😮 Has anyone seen some of the properties here they advertise of having luxury kitchens?

I do know here that many have had to pay for their 10 year guarantee. If there are any problems the property owner has to pay for a technical report (costly especially if they are minor snags).

We once bought a new property in the UK and had six water leaks in as many weeks. They did repair them but we had to go to court from damage to personal goods and furniture. However, as I wrote above it doesn’t change the above spanish info’.
