Building a New House - Freaking Out!Hi,Not sure if anyone can offer advise but I'm stressing out. I'm building a semi-custom house from a spec builder. We made a lot of custom changes, which they don't like to do as it creates too many issues. I signed a document saying our down payment is non-refundable under any cercimstances and that is what is freaking me out. I am worried that they will say forget it when it comes to fixes & such as they have $40K of my money. I don't know what kind of protection a consumer has in general when buying a new house. Most of what we want are listed in the change orders, but doesn't state anything about good workmanship on construction, etc. Such as there are lights that are not centerd in a room or hallway, electrical outlets not in an ideal place, workers broke a lot of the edges on the windows that secures it to the wall, etc. Still waiting to hear from the construction mgr on all of my requests (not at dry way stage yet). I'm worried that they will say take it or leave it on many of the items I'm bringing up because they can. If it wasn't for my $40K on a doc that says non-refundable under any circumstances, I wouldn't be worried at all. But because of that, I'm freaking out that they can screw me.Am I worrying too much?Thanks for your time and input.CurtisMarch 26 2014 - Fate11YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
