Homebuilders will stop at nothing – Now Buyers must agree not to Speak

Sunday, 08 July 2007

Methane Gas Problems in Lennar Homes
Below are two excerpts from reports commissioned by Lennar Corporation and delivered to Lennar Corporation. The full reports are full of startling details and numbers. The saddest thing about this, is Lennar knew about it, but instead of doing the right thing, they put these homeowners through the ringer. Now the state and federal authorities are investigating, and three prominent law firms are looking at the reports...The concentrations of methane exceed the lower explosive limit beneath the slab, and therefore pose a potential threat to the safety of the occupants within the buildings.

Hull says Lennar knew about the problems before homeowners complained. Lennar offered him about $10,000 dollars for the missing square footage. Hull wants Lennar to buy his home back.

Lennar Home troubles with condo owners
Sunday, 06 May 2007

Condo owners upset by work done by builder
Cullen and other owners of condominiums at the 240-unit residential complex at 200 Brannan Street have been threatening lawsuits and battling the builder over defects, including uneven floors, improper ventilation, crooked balconies and shoddy cabinetry. Water seeps into the building's garage. Garage door malfunctions have led to thefts of bicycles and raised security concerns. The homeowners' plight is of broader interest because the builder with which they have been at odds is Lennar Corp., the Miami firm that Mayor Gavin Newsom's administration wants to see carry out redevelopment projects at Treasure Island, Hunters Point Shipyard and Candlestick Point.
