Lennar Houses in Hutto Built on Contaminated Soil
Friday, 03 October 2008

Shaky ground: Arsenic and old soil
As if unstable foundations and questionable constructions didn’t make owning a home in the Huttoparke neighborhood complicated enough, questions about the soil quality are also concerning residents of the beleaguered area of north Hutto...Before Lennar built the first homes in the Huttoparke neighborhood in 2005, Terracon consulting firm conducted a soil study to determine if the land, formerly used for cotton cultivation, was safe for residential housing. Russell Ford, senior hydrogeologist for Terracon, addressed the council on June 5 and said the levels of arsenic found in the Huttoparke neighborhood were dangerously high.

Since the US Army Corps of Engineers began sweeping the Orlando neighborhoods a year ago, they've found more than 200 munitions and other potentially volatile remnants. Some weighed up to 23 pounds. Most were recovered on the grounds of a middle school, including one lodged beneath the landing pit for the long jump.

Why Realtor Will Not Sell Homes in Hutto, Kyle or any Starter Home Area
Saturday, 30 August 2008

Huttoparke Problems Continue, Values Suffer
It is with great fascination that I first saw last year Huttoparke home owners made sure that everyone knew how poorly their homes were built. They may have had no choice but to bring public attention to the problems they were having. In 2006/2007, when our phones rang daily with investors calling to buy in Austin, many didn’t like what I had to say when I told them I wasn’t interested in helping them buy a home in Hutto, Kyle or any other starter home area with supposed better cash flow. “It’s a bad idea” I would say...I hope the owners in Huttoparke find resolution and all problems are resolved. I feel sorry for them. First time buyers have enough to think about without having to do legal battle with builders.

BBB and TRCC Complaints of Little Help to Lennar Homeowners
Friday, 29 August 2008

Homeowners file house complaints with BBB
Copperfield area homeowner Imran Moola had problems with vents tilting and bending, then giving way to water leaks in the house he had built and had lived in for less than two years, but a roof leak around the stove exhaust was of particular concern to him. Several inspections showed that the roof wasn’t properly installed, and though it was under warranty for 10 years, a company representative told him that the repair was his responsibility, not Lennar Homes, the builder... Lennar has an unsatisfactory rating with the BBB, partly due to outstanding unresolved complaints or outstanding unanswered complaints,...

More Homeowners Claim Lennar Sold Lemons and No Help from TRCC
Friday, 29 August 2008

Woman has been fighting home builders for 4 years
Jeryl Bennett purchased her brand-new three-bedroom, two-bathroom house in August of 2004. The home, located in Hanover Forest subdivision near Interstate 45 in Spring, was built by Lennar Homes, Inc. and was documented to be worth $134,000 when Bennett bought it. But in October of 2007, the Appraisal Review Board of Harris County Appraisal District said the home was worth $70,000.  Bennett believes poor construction by the builders is the reason for the drop in value of a home that Bennett now refers to as “a piece of junk.”...Bennett said she’s been in a battle with Lennar and TRCC since she purchased her home and said Lennar has given her the run-around and taken advantage of her.
