There was no new snags but there was a few items that we agreed they could fix post close. Mostly it was glass that needed replacing and was on order

Has anyone done anything with the water pump to reduce the noise?

I know they are noisy but mine seems excessive.

Not yet. Usually when I run the hot water the booster kicks in and that is loud, but fine as only for a few seconds. I’ve found in the evening when everyone is in bed, if the heating is kicking in, there is a low hum from the external fan through to the heat pump. It’s annoying but I suppose that it’s only noticeable when the place is in complete silence. How loud is yours and where are you hearing it?

Its only when we run water, flush toliet/shower/run tap. I think its the sound of the fan so insulation wont help. lasts only a short while.
Might be something i get used to as im moved in more and the place is noisier in general.

Sounds like the water pump rather than the fan.

Sorry i meant the fan that is on the water pump rather than the outside air to water fan.

I could maybe put something on the sliding panel it is sitting behind to insulate the sound

Did my snag yesterday, overall it wasn't bad considering they were obviously pushing it through probably a week or two early to get it off the books before the end of the year.

Not too many major items came up in fairness but yeah some paintwork needs redoing in a few rooms. The biggest paintwork issue was more with the window frames on the inside. They all need cleaning up and repainting. But overall was happy.

A few spots which they had no problem fixing up but overall no major issues

Hi All - I hope everyone had a great first Christmas in their new homes!

I wanted to see if anyone else has had any problems with the heat alarm over the oven during the break? We’ve only been in a week or two and we’ve found that the heat alarm goes off nearly every time we open the oven door. I think it’s to do with placement as it’s nearly right above and so any bit of steam that escapes sets the alarm off and it doesn’t stop for 5 mins or so. Not great when our toddler is down for his nap / sleeping at night!!

I’m going to get on to the office when they’re back but as it’s likely to be January I’m also hoping others may have had the same thing and figured out how to prevent it!

Hey everyone,

Just getting ready to draw down my mortgage and close my sale. But wanted to check did anyone else have an issue with Bank of Ireland. They are claiming they won't release the funds while some of Dres land dealings are still in the mapping stage for the estate.

Hi all,

Wife and I put a booking deposit for a house due for completion in July. Hope you are enjoying your new homes and that you might pass on any information for snag items that are common. In particular I've a question about making small changes and what was permissible by the builder subject to extra cost of course.

Thanks for any detail you can share
