I bought a house built in 2015, but after pulling the permits I find out it was started in 2008. There were stop work orders and failed virtually every inspection. It just scraped by in 2012 for inspections but then sat for another 3 years after that. I was told it was built in 2015 because that's when the "first" owner took occupancy. I found out that the foundation had been poured in 2009 and left sitting until 2011.
What date is used as the date the home was built? Is there a limit on how long a house can be under construction?
I live in Canada.
