I purchased pre-construction, so I didn't see the property before buying. Knowing/not knowing the provisions of the contract pre-construction is not determinative in this situation. You guys are annoying.

I'll have a look at the floor plan document.

Sounds like you took possession after a walk through. We might be annoying but you're the one whining here about a mistake he made.

Beyond the other absurdities - how does this 2x2 area diminish your ability to enjoy your condo?

You don't seem to understand that the floor plan isn't to be relied upon. You are expected to pay attention to the space you're purchasing but as you've admitted...you didn't do that because you "weren't thinking". That is a "problem" you will have to deal with on your own.

You saw the space you were buying and thought it was a good deal. Now you see on the floor plan something very slightly amiss, that you didn't even notice on walk-through, and now you're wondering whether or not you can be "compensated". You are the worst kind of customer there is.


Where is Mr Moo when we need him and his deerskin hand bag?

I'm "occupying", but haven't taken possession (re: title) yet. Gentlemen, I'd ask that you please stop making the assumptions necessary to justify your anguish. It's better to ASK before you bark. I completed a "PDI" walkthrough which, in my locale, starts a 30-day clock for warranty purposes. Even outside of the warranty I'm fairly certain I can bring a suit if I care to. Anyways, since I haven't received any more than one or two helpful responses in this thread, you can all take a rest now. And I don't solicit "internet" responses expecting them to be immature. /participation

You're so full of shit and trying to make yourself look good given that you didn't get the response you expected. You haven't taken possession yet? Let me remind you of your OP and we can see who is barking and should really remember what he posts:

I'm not seeking legal advice, but what happens in situations like this? Any real estate folks kicking around??

So, is it your contention now that your 30 day warranty period will allow you to have the vent removed?

As a trial attorney, I always have to laugh at people who think they've got a great lawsuit every time something annoys them.

Call your attorney and pay him $300 an hour to get you what a jury thinks four square feet of corner space is worth. Who knows, he might be unethical enough to take it from you.

The thought you have an RE lawyer is ludicrous. If you had said, "I'll have to contact an RE lawyer" your level of pompousness and idiocy would have been much lower. To the bolded: lulz. Come talk to me after you have gone through numerous arbitrations with millions on the table.
+100000 That you have an RE lawyer on retainer, and that you don't really understand the particulars of buying a condo, are mutually exclusive propositions. That is the biggest source of lulziness on this threak so far. And all over one word choice: "my."
