We've noticed the same. The way we see it, they could go above and beyond if they had to. We had an area in our yard that had overgrowth for which we were quoted $2-$3k by contractors; I gently requested this to the builders and they did it for free. Was it something that HAD to be done by the builders? Could be argued either way. Another anecdote - we had overlooked an electrical outlet placement and during a walk through, we pointed out that we had asked for it to be placed somewhere else. It was clearly not documented on our part, neither was it something we pointed out during our framing walk through. The builders fixed it right away.

not necessarily. His claim is that if done on the front end, you can be successful. Which is true.

If OP had a good Realtor, they would have merely had Lennar write this into the contract as a term, and I doubt Lennar would have had an issue - given it would still be closing at their estimated date and within the calendar/fiscal year.

However, it's ALSO quite true that they're not going back after the fact and inserting such a clause - especially at this late date

Thinking you started off on the wrong foot by electing to go with them in the first place...
