200 tradesmen visits
JOHN Charalambous and his wife Sarah Noakes, left, claim to have had more than 200 visits from staff and tradesmen over problems with their new-build.
Sales manager John, 49, and Sarah, 35, moved into their £400,000 four-bedroom home in Hailsham, East Sussex, in November last year but found issues including a leaky bay window and stained carpets.
John says: ‘I must have sent more than 300 emails to Linden Homes since then.’
A Linden Homes spokesman says: ‘We have been in contact with the customer in response to the items raised and the vast majority have been resolved.’
