They gave us a ticket. They also said they will do a yearly inspection and fix any issues after the house was settle since it was a new home

Are you saying that you purchased a home from a seller who then was sending out inspectors and a contractor never came to do the work. It is a bit unclear. If you can clarify, that would be great.

We purchase a new home, the house had issue that needed to be fix the day of the closing they gave us a ticket that they will repair the issues but after we closed they fix a few and said they will fix the rest during the yearly inspection when the house is settle. They came by inspected the house and fix a few issues but stop fixing the rest of the issues, they have not answer our calls, emails and text.

So the claims would be for breach of contract in law and promissory estoppel in equity (meaning they promised and failed to fulfill it). This would first entail having an attorney writing a demand letter, certified return receipt requested demanding they do the work. Then if they failed to do so, you would bring an action in court. We can discuss more if you want to do so.
