On May 22, the "Administrative Measures for the Full Decoration of Commercial Residential Buildings in Hainan Province (Trial)" was officially issued. According to this administrative measure, all commercial residential projects that have obtained construction permits after July 1, 2017 (inclusive) must be fully implemented. decoration. Hainan will become the first province to fully implement the full decoration of commercial housing.
"Fully renovated room" refers to the completion of decoration and installation of basic facilities such as wall and floor, water and electricity pipelines, switch sockets and other basic facilities before handover, and the installation of kitchen and bathroom fixtures such as cabinets, sanitary ware, etc. However, there are no restrictions on the "soft decoration" that reflects the owner's personality, leaving room for play. Although such a "fully renovated house" can prevent the residents from opening holes in the walls and replacing electrical switches, water pipes, etc., the layout and furniture placement of each house are different. If the wires, water pipes, sockets, The orientation and installation of faucets do not meet the requirements of the residents, either making the residents have to cut holes in the walls to re-install them, or they can only pull out temporary sockets, etc., making the house a mess.
Besides, although the "Measures" make it clear that the decoration cost will not be charged separately and will be included in the total price of the house in the sales contract, it is also questionable whether the decoration price included in the total price is reasonable. In the name of “housing”, housing prices are raised to seek more illegitimate profits, and the public has no other choice, so this bundled decoration has actually become a “disguised price increase”.
Although the "Measures" are clear, the house purchase contract must specify the specific standards for the main decoration materials, parts, equipment, construction quality and quality warranty period. But who will guarantee the quality of these decoration materials, components and equipment? Since many decoration materials cannot be seen from the outside after the decoration is completed, if some inferior materials are mixed inside, the residents cannot verify it. Although the "Measures" clearly have a shelf life, even if the developers use relatively inferior materials, there will generally be no problems within two or three years. So, after the expiration date, who should you turn to to solve the problem?
In addition, after the fixed facilities such as cabinets and sanitary wares in the bathroom and kitchen are installed in place, and the walls are decorated, the color and style of each house are the same, so there is no special feature. Also, it may be difficult for some houses to decorate rooms, etc. It is very difficult to match the layout and color with the room layout, furniture and other colors. As a result, either the decoration of the home is nondescript, or the decoration of the kitchen, bathroom, etc. is overturned, which will undoubtedly increase the extra burden on the people and cause greater waste.
"Rough housing has become history", if it is not handled properly, it may become a burden for home buyers. Therefore, Hainan requires that all commercial residential projects must be fully decorated, and there must be strict operating procedures. When developers renovate houses, they must clarify the decoration price, standard, brand and model of main materials and equipment, and publicize it to the public. There are more options. It is necessary to let residents know whether the price is reasonable when buying a house, and to extend the warranty period so that the warranty period can be extended to more than ten years. Materials fool the public.
Hainan will become the first province to fully implement the full decoration of commercial housing, and this must be done well. It is necessary for the people to get real benefits from the fully renovated houses while they will no longer open walls and holes to damage the structure of the houses after they buy the fully renovated houses. Don't let "full decoration" become the reason for some developers to increase the price, let alone let "full decoration" become a burden on the public.
