Developer Absolves Responsibility during Defect Liability Period

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Appreciate views from building engineers / water specialists / anyone with similar experiences on this Water Seepage issue observed along my wall (refer to Photo). 

Upon moving into my newly TOP apartment in mid 2017, I noticed a small 5cm circular water mark on the wall which disappears when it’s sunny. 

During rainy Seasons of Nov17-Jan18, the water seepage mark grew dramatically.

I first reported the issue to my Developer in Nov17 and the joint inspection was conducted in Jan18.

Post-inspection, Developer informed that the water seepage was likely the result of my installation of a magnetic mosquito net & its accompanying frame (non-sliding) - refer to photo. Developer informed that this is considered an A&A (Alteration & Addition) caused matter and hence they would not rectify9D7080EA-A088-461F-9EC0-B4E1C31AEFB3.jpeg.73b7c9823848db03af6eba3f9a5ae2b4.jpeg

To my family, it appeared as it’s a leakage from the external wall into the interior wall. Furthermore, we never see any water pooling etc along our window frame. This is rather perplexing. 

Appreciate everyone’s views pls.

I am more amazed at the installation of a magnetic netting on the outside of the window. Not only does it alter the external facade of the building, it also presents a window safety issue. Very high chance the incoming mcst will insist on its removal.
