Alex Rachun, Code Enforcement Officer/Building Inspector Phone:(NNN) NNN-NNNN ext. 231
The builder should not have been issued an occupancy permit if the property was not up to code. Those being said, have the inspector verify the code violations. Send the builder a letter via certified mail return receipt requested demanding that the code violations be rectified or you will have no alternative other than to sue him. I am sorry that you are going through this situation with the builder. You can also file a complaint against him with the New York Attorney General. The Attorney General is tasked with consumer protection for the State and this is a consumer protection issue.
As a licensed contractor you can file a complaint with the licensing board for the State.
Hopefully this will motivate him to repair your home to code. Please do not hesitate to ask me any additional questions that you may have with regard to this matter. It would be my pleasure to continue to assist you.
You are welcome.
