7) PUNCH LIST

The proverbial punch-list. A punch list are items that need to be completed or mistakes were made and need to be corrected. Many builder’s contracts want you to close on your transaction and worded where the punch list is the rule, versus the exception. Fred makes sure this language is in your favor and not the builder’s. Sometimes there may be a few items time may not permit to have completed, or an appliance is damaged and on back order. But, your punch list should only be the exception, not the rule.
