1. Cracked grout in master bath shower. It seems like the tile on the bench in our shower is not securely attached to the framing so the outer corner tiles are pulling apart leaving a space in the grout. I hope we don't already have mold forming under our bench.
2. Chip in the hall bath tile. Not sure if they'll be able to fix this.
3. Some nail holes in our hardwood have not been filled in.
4. Carpet not attached to the floor in some corners/edges.
5. Our sink is rusting already. Again, not sure what they can do about this, but it's worth mentioning.
6. The biggest issue we have is the grading of our lot. There are two very prominent low spots in which there has been standing water almost constantly since closing. There are two swales on either side of our property and they were not graded correctly, which has caused ponding, which will eventually cause a mosquito problem, so this needs to be addressed.
The annoying thing is that I brought this to the PM's attention during our walkthrough (it was not wet at the time, but I could tell it was graded wrong... this is what I do for a living), and his response was that it passed the grading inspection so it should be fine. I'm sure he tried to brush it off because it's kind of a big deal to re-grade about 1/4 of our lot. But I wish I had pushed the issue because it's a bigger deal now that we have actually started growing grass (our lot was seeded, not sodded).
The grading of the entire front lawn is wrong as well, but I care less about that since it's not causing any real drainage problems (yet).

We will see what he says when we give him our two-week list, but I don't plan to back off until it is addressed.
