Getting closer to the defects rectification, but not quite there yet. There are three major outcomes achieved:
1. Fair Trading has sent a report regarding the work that has not been completed by the builder.
2. The builder left one defect undone, but has been forced by Fair Trading to fix it.
3. The builder started begging for money from the owner for the work that has been done in accordance with Fair Trading rectification order. So they ask for money to be paid for the work they had an obligation to do to repair the defective work they did earlier.
Though at the moment the issue remaining is not very critical, however it affects the quality of living in the purchased property.
The builder sent people to fix the defect. The fixing is to reapply the silicon. The root cause of the issue has never been investigated properly.
It is 1 year and 11 months since the time the defects were reported to the builder! It would take possibly the same time to build a new apartment from scratch. :)
Still more time to go.
