    Hi, got a building inspection back for a property I put an offer on. It is a brand new townhouse and the inspection said that they didn't put covers on the downlights which is a fire hazard and they are mandatory to have by law.

    I have a building inspection satisfactory to the purchasor clause for 14 days. Is it reasonable to ask them to install them at their own expense before settlement? Its not a deal breaker for me but perhaps I could tell them I am thinking of pulling out if they refuse. Advice appreciated.

    Id say that it was picked up and suggest they do it to keep the sale.

    If they don't, don't stress. Adding them on yourself won't make or break the deal.

    Is that all they picked up?

    Other than that the only main thing was some of the sealing in the bathroom needs doing and the grout in the laundry is poor.
