Houston Chronicle Letter to the Editor - TRCC Waddill Raise, Raises anger and Insults
Thursday, 05 March 2009

Proposed TRCC raise insults
...the TRCC seems to have empowered bad builders to continue victimizing customers. If the TRCC is to continue, it should be revamped from a builder-protection agency to a consumer-protection one. Those on the commission should be making sure homes are fixed correctly when needed. If houses are so badly built, builders should have no choice but to buy them back.

Is anyone listing - Some people just don't get it.
Monday, 02 March 2009

Is it really the time to grant a pay raise?
Last week, two commissioners appearing before the Senate Finance Committee, proposed a pay raise for their executive director, Duane Waddill, which would boost his annual salary from the current $98,000 to as much as $125,880. Some people don’t get it.  Remember, this is the agency, now under sunset review, that some legislators and many consumer advocates want to abolish because of complaints that it has been little more than a lap dog for home builders...“This agency is really a trap for homeowners. The reality of it is it’s a failure,” said Sen. Juan Hinojosa, D-McAllen.

State Commission Recomends to Abolish TRCC As TRCC Commissioners Recommend Exec's Pay Increase
Monday, 02 March 2009

Lawmaker Blasts Push for Pay Hike for Residential Construction Official
"Quite frankly, I was both surprised and disturbed that the board members of the Texas Residential Construction Commission would ask to increase Mr. Waddill’s salary at a time when the public and the legislature have lost confidence in the Commission to adequately protect those you are entrusted to serve Texas homeowners," Hegar wrote. As you are well aware, the Sunset Advisory Commission's staff recommended abolishment of the Commission.

TEXAS: Smalltime builder lifetime ban from building does nothing for victims
Saturday, 14 February 2009

Builder barred from industry
A state commission on Wednesday banned Jarrell homebuilder Pete Stucky from working in the residential construction industry for his lifetime. The Texas Residential Construction Commission said Stucky and his affiliates victimized dozens of homeowners when he failed to make repairs that were under warranty and hid the fact some properties he built and sold had liens against them. And folks who bought Stucky’s homes who have warranty problems have nowhere to go for redress.

Texas Believe It Or Not - Builder of only 150 Houses Agrees to Never Build Again
Thursday, 12 February 2009

Builder Banned for life
Banned for life. Pete Stucky can build no more in the lone star state. The Texas Residential Construction Commission approved the ban against Stucky and his business Affiliates LLC. Stucky's legal troubles are far from over... He was arrested late last year on misdemeanor perjury charges accused of signing legal documents saying there were no unpaid debts on several houses he built. Investigators told us Stucky admitted he signed the documents knowing it was false. His case is expected to go before a Williamson County grand jury next week.

TRCC Builder Protection Agency Shelters Choice Homes

Another TRCC Closure: Defective Choice Home Sold on the Auction Block
“I bought a defective home built by a builder that is not licensed and wired by an unlicensed electrician.  I was stuck with a house that could not be insured, that I couldn’t live in or sell.  I got no help from the City of Princeton or the State ‘Builder’s Protection Agency’ TRCC.   I can’t sue the builder because of a binding arbitration clause or any of there subs, yet the builder somehow has a gag order on me so I won’t tell any of the other homeowners what has happened.   So… welcome to Texas … my dream went down the toilet when my house was sold on the auction block,” said Cam Taylor.  See new construction in Princeton Texas...Homebuilding Texas Style
