Before you move in to your new home, be sure to check all major components to verify that your builder has done everything to your specifications. If anything is amiss, contact your builder’s warranty service department to request repairs within a specific time frame. Also be sure to ask your builder the location of things such as the circuit breaker panel, water shut-offs, gas shut-offs, sewer cleanout, phone box and any buried systems or lines, such as propane, electric, cable and phone.
