How can someone be shafted when the onus is on them to conduct due diligence and inspect the product thoroughly before buyingSad ?
Buying a house is like looking for a good, godly wife, papa. The minute you see she has a little cray-cray in her (e.g. short temper over every single non issue) or slayqueenish tambias like showing up to the date in a tight tight tiiiight miniskirt with no draws on - RUN papa RUN!

Standard construction contracts have a rectification period of 6-12 months after handover. During that time the client withholds payment of the final payment of 10% or so and the contractor rectifies any defects that arise.

There are consultants (mep) who can run those test and ascertain the status of works of they meet minimum requirements. however,you must be issued with test certificates by your developer before taking over.

@AA, the guy who appears on BD Africa louded as an upcoming developer currently doing another project on Eastern Bypass.

Woe unto the guys who'll buy the houses as same cheap fixtures/fittings have been used.

what is the first letter of his name at least.please name him so he can defend himself and also the rest of us can deal with him with caution.if he has scr*w*d you there is nothing to lose in naming him



Yaani even putting a magic connector on the sinks was a problem. Something simple and doesn't cost much. Never seen a kitchen drainage (that silver thing) being put as the bathroom drainage. When I asked the fundiz, they semad hizo ndio wamepewa.

To add insult to injury, moved out of site after liability period was over without issues being resolved despite numerous promises and reminders on record.

The guy is our very own MM. Most of you guys will be shocked and say I might be discrediting him lakini I know how much the shoe is pinching and how that toilet seat injured my makalioz (kulia kwa choo quite literally).



You should report the matter to NCA and involve your lawyer (if necessary) & bank. They will come survey the the structure just in case there're some structural flaws as well that can endanger your family. They also check on the fittings and they invite other professional bodies to inspect as well. They can blacklist the rogue contractor and ask him to redo and compensate you for your losses. Just try them, you never know. It might sound extreme but I know a friend who did and got sorted after all you don't know what will start falling apart after 10 years. Anyway, pole sana.

Construction errors are wide and diverse for a layman to spot them.
Actually, the key issue is inspection of design documents and specs then match with the product. If it does not meet your criteria, just know that woman or man is not your type and move on.
There is no one fit all house design.
Performance is another monster. Your level of performance is not necessarily equal to someone else.
Buildings. Sale criteria is as built, if not bought off the blue prints.

Its very difficult for a home buyer to identify some of the issues and there are developers who are very good at covering their shoddy work with flashy tiles na kizungu mingi. Plumbing and sewer disposal is a major issue in most of these developments and its difficult to suspect shoddy job.
I don't think it will help to shaft another unsuspecting home buyer you can seek resolve the matter through courts but it will still take time.

This should be the case but is it applied by the whole industry and is it standard practice? edenville 2 for example which i would assume is a big developer gives 3 months which i find absurd.Do you know of any developers /contractors who have this kind of contract, would be good to know

Go look at your house and report back. Those defects are a common thing. Fixing toilet smooth and clean is not priority to many fundis and supervisors often careless about them. Ety window sill, worktops and wardrobes, drainage desiltation, watakuchekelea. Not many contractors have that time. Even tiles are uneventful not cut squares ruggedness and unplumb fittings etc

I've noticed this issue with many homes in Kenya. People have built large homes that look very beautiful from outside but inside the finishing is often subpar. For example poorly hang drawers, uneven stairs, tiles not cut square or that are not flush to each other, water draining poorly in the shower, socket covers crooked ... the list is soo long. It's like people are not proud of the work they produce and the home owners are not keen on these things.
