My advice for getting things fixed before closing is send a list with picture of issues to the PM as you see them. Don't feel like you have to wait until the final walk through to say what's wrong. Spend time in each room and bring a light, it's hard to see in the rooms with no lights until you move in and install lights.
Ones we get settled in we will post picture.

Our Final-Walk-Thru / Pre Settlement Demonstration (whatever they want to call it) is tomorrow and I know that it’s going to be a lot to go over. Since visiting last weekend we found more issues, which it normal to see more issues the more you look. Our PM said he was working on my list I sent them for the last 2 weeks, yet only couple were finished this weekend. I really thought he would have done more. That leaves him only 2 full days to do everything else on my list, which I don't think he will have time. So most I will need to get in writing that they will be done after closing. I wonder if he is going to fight me over fixing some of my issues. If so, I will be asking for his manger contact information, as I won’t stand for poor quality work and a house that doesn’t meant code. If the manager gives me any fight on things that don’t meant code I will ask for the name of the county inspector that passed it and will be filing a complaint with county, saying that inspector is passing things that don’t meet code. I bet the county inspector didn’t look around as much as he should have, not that he doesn’t know the code. I’m sure that will get my point across.

So we haven’t heard from our PM yet since he is still on vacation, and we didn’t want to contact the other PM listed on his out of office e-mail, as it wasn’t emergency. We wanted to give him time himself to address the issues. With that being said if we don’t hear back on Monday or like what he has to say, my husband will be stopping by on Tuesday morning to go over everything with him in person. As we want everything fixed that we have pointed out to him before the final walk thru, done by the final walk thru. We don’t expect our PM to be perfect, no one is, but he should be able fix things pointed out to him in a timely manner (We gave 2 weeks, he used 1 as vacation). If he is able to do this then we will make sure it’s reflected well in our survey. This week he said they would be finishing up the outside, that clearly didn't happen, lol. It still looks the same, so next week is the last week for this. We also noticed a couple more things wrong this week, some after some research. I was worrying about our cleanout in the basement pipe. It’s facing in the wall not out, making it hard to actual cleanout if needed. So I looked up the code and it doesn’t meet code the way the clean out is currently installed. Along with them sealing the wall closed over it, big no no. It must be accessible, so that will be fixed. We also measured between some of outlets and don't meet code, after we even paid to add an extra one, lol. It's sad the county inspector did even catch all these things that don't meet code. So I will email him to add these to the list along most listed below. I don't think our PM realized how detail we are at checking things, until he reads our list of what's wrong.
