Some complain new homeowner-rights bill not enough
News 8 has reported numerous stories of homeowners complaining of shoddy construction, and being left with expensive repairs. Lawmakers promised to find a way to hold homebuilders accountable, but some wonder if a bill passed Monday really does that...Unsafe and leaky construction has forced Dawn Richardson to move out of the new home she's still paying for. Richardson said the problem was mold, and the lack of a statewide code that would require homebuilders to meet specific standards. "The builders know they can't be held accountable, so I don't think that they are working to resolve issues," Richardson said.

Panel seeks independent probe of SAHA
After listening to a dozen angry residents complain about problems they're having buying homes in the taxpayer-funded Villas de Fortuna subdivision, the City Council's Urban Affairs Committee called Tuesday for an independent investigation of the San Antonio Housing Authority, which had the homes built. The proposal must go before the entire City Council for approval. As proposed by District 6 Councilwoman Delicia Herrera, the investigation would be funded by SAHA but controlled by the city, which would find independent investigators to look at the lease-to-purchase program, evaluate the agency's handling of residents' concerns and provide solutions to problems that have endured through three SAHA CEOs, three chief operating officers, and a slew of other officials.
