"Arbitration clauses should be removed from new home contracts as a prerequisite
to purchasing the home. Only when a dispute arises should the owner be given the option of binding arbitration instead of the current court system. Only when the extra fees, rules, procedures, and backgrounds of the arbitrators are openly disclosed to the homeowner can they make a reasonable and educated decision."

"Disclosure of the facts to reach an informed choice will allow binding arbitration to stand on it's own or fall on it's farce."

Texas House panel hears complaints about binding arbitration requirement
Home buyers with horrifying tales of creeping mold, collapsing walls and heaving foundations converged on a Texas House subcommittee Wednesday to complain about how they unwittingly signed sales contracts preventing them from suing the builders they claim are responsible for their woes.
