Many do not know that some issues are only covered for the first 30 days or so.....ALL screen issues, scratches in sinks, appliances, countertops, mirrors, windows and sliding doors, bathtubs, toilet seats, etc.,etc.

This makes sense, because if there is a large scratch in let's say, your kitchen sink, if you report it and have it on your 30 day list they should take care of it, but 10 months later they can say that the scratch could have easily been caused by your pots and pans, etc. That is reasonable.

Landscaping is also usually only for 30 days.

Many issues, like screw pops, drywall cracks, etc, may not show up for they are reported during your one year warranty inspection. They are common, and The Villages prefer to come out once to fix them all. This is why most folks wait to report those items, because if they find 2-3 we will most likely find more and we include those in our report.

Hope that helps! Again, Congratulations!

Thank you Frank, really great information you are sharing !! Our sales rep has stated that when we arrive in October, we will have a 10 day window to create a final punchlist at that time, sort of like getting the keys officially. We will reference your comments to make sure we are inspecting things correctly!
