Outrageous! Buy a New Home - Don’t Sue and Shut Up
Homebuilders will stop at nothing – Now Buyers must agree not to Speak

Beware of New Builder Clause – Homebuilder requires that homebuyer sign clauses forcing buyers to give up their constitutional rights.  It’s a decision between constitutional rights and the American Dream.

Pulte Homes Under FBI Investigation
Wednesday, 01 August 2012

FBI looking into Fairhaven
An FBI official said it has begun a probe into whether Pulte Homes intentionally concealed information about unstable soil conditions in the Fairhaven subdivision on Builder's Certification forms. The forms must be filled out by the home builder when a home buyer applies for a Federal Housing Administration-insured mortgage. “This is a preliminary inquiry to gather facts to see if it warrants a full-blown investigation,” said Special Agent Erik Vasys, spokesman for the San Antonio FBI office. The inquiry is being conducted by both the FBI and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, which oversees the Federal Housing Administration.

Pulte Builds on Cemetery Land in Nashville
Friday, 27 July 2012

1800s family laid to rest once more
Twenty-year-old Sheila Carter was first buried beside her family members in 1889. Dirt and vegetation hid her tombstone until Brentwood homeowner Steve Jones ran over it with his lawn mower two years ago. A team of seven archaeologists is now moving Carter's body and eight others from the Jones' back yard into a small cemetery nearby.
Nashville developer Pulte Homes, formerly Radnor Homes, is paying for the removal of the bodies, an arrangement reached in Chancery Court last month. According to state law, landowners cannot sell land with graves on it without informing the buyer the bodies are there.

Pulte-Centex: After Five Years, 4,317 Sun City Homeowners Struggle with Defective Homes
Friday, 20 July 2012

Hundreds of Sun City homeowners seek answers on class-action lawsuit
Hundreds of Sun City Hilton Head homeowners crowded the Bluffton High School auditorium Thursday for an update on a class-action lawsuit claiming rampant defective stucco work in the retirement community. Lawyers who hope to represent them said they expect the five-year-old case to move forward in the courts soon.  Sun City residents may see people taking pictures of their homes soon if they haven't already noticed them, Seekings said.  That's because lawyers are already preparing to send 4,317 "Right to Cure" notices to Pulte, he said.

Pulte Homes Foreseeable Hazards
Thursday, 12 July 2012

FBI, HUD investigating Fairhaven homebuilder
The FBI and the U.S. Department of Hoursing and Urban Development  are investigating whether a builder lied on HUD forms for the Fairhaven neighborhood. The agencies are looking into complaints that Pulte Homes improperly filled out builder's certification forms. There's a separate form for every house, and they're required so homebuyers can receive government-backed mortgage loans. One section of the form asks about foreseeable hazards or adverse conditions. Among the questions it asks: Does the site have inadequate surface drainage, unstable soils, excessive slopes or earth fill, and will the foundation sit on fill?

Pulte Homes Hiding, Patching and Ignoring Home Problems
Thursday, 12 July 2012
Shifting and shuffling: Fairhaven residents say foundations are slipping

Obviously it’s not just the soil. It’s that something has seriously gone wrong here,” said Janet Ahmad with Homeowners for Better Building, a non-profit group that is seeking tougher state and local laws for home-builders.  Ahmad said the foundation problems mask a deeper problem: that Pulte built the Fairhaven subdivision on land unsuitable for homes. She is critical of Schertz city leaders for not addressing the dozens of homeowners who crowd city council meetings to complain. What Pulte does not want the public to see
