There is no unified standard for fine decoration,

  • Detail

Another "unspoken rule" has surfaced - for owners, hardbound house repair saves the labor of their own decoration and shortens the time from delivery to occupancy; For developers, the hardbound renovation gives them the opportunity to improve their brands and services. In this way, fine decoration should be "beneficial but not harmful", but another "hidden rule" surfaced ― ―

for owners, fine decoration and repair of houses saves the labor of their own decoration and shortens the time from delivery to check-in; For developers, the hardbound renovation gives them the opportunity to improve their brands and services. In this way, fine decoration should be "beneficial but not harmful", but in fact, it has brought a lot of confusion and even trouble to consumers, and developers have therefore gained a bad reputation of "making a lot of money because of fine decoration". And don't count the crimes of fine decoration. Let's first look at the accounting of fine decoration area when buying a house, and we can see how many uncertain factors are in fine decoration

is the fine decoration area equal to the building area

Ms. Lu bought a small family commercial house. Because the house is finely decorated, the house price includes the cost of blank house and decoration cost. Note in the remarks in the subscription agreement: decoration is 1200 yuan/square meter. However, after formally signing the "commercial housing sales contract" and the "interior decoration contract", Ms. Lu found that the contract clearly defined the building area, usable area and decoration price of the house, and the words about decoration standards no longer appeared. Shortly after making the payment, Ms. Lu found that the decoration fee was calculated according to the building area. She thought that what she signed was the "interior decoration contract", so the amount of shared area should be removed from the decoration fee and asked the developer to return it. However, the developer explained that the fine decoration area equals the building area for the convenience of sales, so she refused to return the fee required by Ms. Lu

non refundable gifts fine decoration

Mr. Zhang signed a commercial housing sales contract with the developer, which agreed: "purchase the building area of the house ×××× Square meters, base price ×××× Yuan/square meter. After adjustment according to relevant factors, the total price of the house ×××× Yuan. A full set of fine decoration is attached. " However, the price of fine decoration is not clearly stipulated in the contract, only the oral statement of the salesperson: per square meter ×××× Yuan. At the time of delivery, because Mr. Zhang was not satisfied with the decoration, he asked the developer for a refund. The developer argued that the total price of the house was priced by sets, and the unit price of the house was not determined. It was a gift for decoration, and there was no way to calculate the price. Therefore, it did not agree with any refund requirements. After several rounds of negotiation with the developer, the matter was finally settled by replacing some indoor facilities

developers' statement on the accounting of refined decoration area

the reporter consulted several refined decoration projects as a buyer and asked the developers about the method of calculating the refined decoration area. Some developers were vague, and a larger number of developers confirmed that the refined decoration area was equivalent to the building area, but when asked why it was calculated in this way, the developers' explanation was not unified

statement 1: we haven't made clear how to calculate it. This statement is generally about the opening of the future housing project, mainly to sign the subscription agreement with the owner as soon as possible. When signing the formal sales contract and decoration contract, no matter how the developer calculates, the owner can only recognize it

statement 2: there is also fine decoration in public parts. The developer made it clear that the refined decoration area is equal to the construction area because the public part is also refined decoration. The reporter believed that the public part of ordinary residence should not be refined decoration. When the reporter asked the developers whether the project was an apartment, they explained that although the project was approved as an ordinary residence, it was built according to the apartment. It's no wonder that the public part is also finely decorated

statement 3: there is nothing why. Presumably, this answer is the most likely to cause the dissatisfaction of owners. Consumers have the right to know. Even if there is no tenable position, at least find a plausible explanation to respect the rights and interests of owners

statement 4: fine decoration is to calculate a total price first. Because the house is sold according to the building area, the total price of fine decoration is shared equally within the building area, so there is an average price of fine decoration ×××× Yuan/square meter, which is converted into the house price and given to the owner. This kind of statement is the most conventional one and the most plausible one. But not all owners can figure out why this "gift" is required to be accepted unconditionally

there is no unified standard, and buyers should be cautious.

from the above cases and the explanation of developers, it can be seen that at present, there is no unified standard formulated by relevant departments for the price accounting of fine decoration. Coupled with the illegal operation of some developers, the owners are at a loss in this situation. The reporter consulted baiguohong, the deputy director of Lantai law firm, who said that many of the cases he represented were about the accounting of fine decoration costs, but the cases in which the owners won were almost zero. The contract of the developer is a standard format contract, which has a weak degree of protection for the buyer. The developer will try to avoid the key issues, and some bad developers will create traps in the contract, such as double counting the public area, making false promises about the use area, deliberately not clarifying the standard and price of hardcover repair, etc. Due to their weak position and realistic purchase demand, property buyers are often unable to do anything about it. Once the contract takes effect, the buyer will fall into a passive situation when disputes actually occur

finally, lawyer Bai reminded buyers: first, the pricing method should be as clear as possible in the contract. Pricing by set must be clear whether it is based on the use area or the building area; Second, for the important places agreed in the contract, even for the gift part (such as fine decoration), the standard and price should be determined as far as possible, and the ownership and scope of application of the right should be clear when necessary (such as the gift of the terrace and the use of the garage); Third, clarify the settlement method of disputes over the pricing part in the contract
