    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.

    Is that all they picked up?[/QUOTE]

    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.
