Hmm that is very unfortunate.If this is true then reporting them to something like Better Business bureau would be good. Also see if you have mortgage insurance, it may be able to help you out. Cutting the joint is really not needed. Start from scratch. Unfortunately any bevel joints that were there must already be filled and sanded so you have to treat every seam like a butt joint.

If the house is still under new construction warranty and you've got a lot of issues that the builder won't address, then you may want to consult with a real estate attorney to see what your options are. Another avenue would be the contractor regulating board. The BBB (Better Business Bureau) tends to be pretty worthless, at least here in the states.

As far as repairs go, applying tape to what you have is all you can do. No need to cut joints or anything.
If the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.
