Who pays for fixing builder error?
I am building a house and I gave the builder the floor plan of house I wanted. I signed off on the plan, not knowing how to read a blueprint, not realizing the builder changed the entrance to the basement from my kitchen to entrance to the basement from my foyer. Also the arch from the foyer was to be wall-to-wall, it looks like an entrance from the foyer.
I requested the wallsbe torn down and redone. He is saying they can't remove the walls, as one wall has electrical wiring and the other wall has air vents, and to fix the arch in the foyer he wants me to pay for it. I am adamen, since they made the error and I was not told of the changes, they are responsible for fixing it.
Please advise. If he won't fix it, should I hire a lawyer?
