I have exactly the same issues with poorly installed ceramics and inconsistent color of the grout (not to mention the black color of the grout with almost white tiles), and the same floor problems. I have asked them to reinstall, and overall have about 40 flaws listed on my Tarion form.
Fortunately my floors are pretty perfect. The odd squeak here and there but not as bad as I've experienced in various other suites.
Talking with other neighbours it seems the consensus is that Cresford hired amateurs to install backsplash tiles. Sloppy and inconsistent all around.
And the only balcony issue I have is with the remnants of paint from the paint roller used to paint the undersides of the balcony. The splotches are all over the underhang from the railing above making it impossible to get at without falling of the balcony. It's quite noticeable. I'm sure customer care will attend to it, but haven't had a chance to add it to my list of deficiencies yet.
Looks like the building registered 2 days ago as per my Lawyer
As most of the Units in the Building will be closing on the same day, please insure that financing is arranged immediately (if you have financing already arranged, please advise your Lender about the confirmed closing date) and please insure that up-dated instructions are received from your Lender at least 10 days prior to the closing date. (that is by April 17, 2010).
Until the building registers, the purchasers do not own the units to sell them. Cresford still owns the units and the residents are paying a phantom mortgage or an occupancy fee to stay there. Currently residents cannot sell unless they have permission from Cresford to assign their unit.
Once the building registers you will see an increase in listings on mls.
