    Default Real Estate Help

    Hi guys,
    We moved into our new home on saturday. The weekend before we moved in we did the final inspection to check everything was working... we signed the form but now weve moved in and the roller door on the garage doesnt close you shut it and it just comes straight back up ( when we went and did the final check the roller door was up, so believed it worked... should have seen it close ) we've checked there is nothing blocking it...
    Were do we stand here ? we've lived in the house for 3 days ( 4 today ) are we expected to fix this or can we put it back to the realestate ?? I really dont want a huge bill to fix a door we havent even used ...

    Just email your property manager - it is a maintenance issue. They will organise for someone to come and have a look at it. I doubt it is even a big problem, I have seen roller doors do that just because they are not on their tracks properly, it takes like 10 secs to fix it

    Oh sorry, LOL.

    Well it is probably nothing major TBH. I have had garage doors do this in the past. Usually it is just not clicked in properly (you know that hangy down think near the motor?) or the wheels are not on the track properly. Just check that everything seems to be in its right place.

    Also just remembered, on the motor bit there is usually a nob or two that can control how far the door goes up/down. Try having a look at that.

    Hhhm... Try and go back to the real estate and see what they can do. If not, you are stuck with it.

    When we brought our house we made lots of little discoveries in the two months after that you don't pick up when you do your inspections, but we've just had to deal with it. The way I see it, as soon as settlement is done it is your responsibility - but if it was broken before hand they should have to fix it or should have advised you that it was broken so you could come to an agreement about repairing it.

    added on.... after you have done what K&P suggested

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    the o/h was fiddling with it yesterday ( hes a mechanic so thought he could fix it) he couldnt find a thing that would be making it do it so puts it down to something internal/ mechanical. im sure its something little that could be fixed easily just really not wanting a huge bill on our hands when really if they knew it was broken they should have fixed it our let us know 9 i have a feeling they did know it was broken as they had it up when we got to inspect the property so we wouldnt suspect it..

    Hmmmm. The other thing with roller doors is if they encounter too much resistance they will automatically roll back up. You may just need to grease the tracks/wheels and chain to make sure they are all moving smoothly.

    Doesn't that just annoy you though! The last thing you need after just buying a house is more bills! moving is expensive enough! Lol give the RE a call, cause I would say they would have known as well.

    Problem is you will have a hard time proving it, especially after they signed a form saying house was all good .

    They may have thought it was something major, but it quite possibly still isn't/ Try greasing the tracks and that. See if it helps.
    I am assuming you manually have been pulling the door down so it iisn't open?
