Disposable Housing today,
are the Slums and Foreclosures of tomorrow
The home building industry is unregulated and out of control. Homes are not built to even minimum HUD or State standards, warranties give a false sense of security and are unenforceable.
In order to buy what use to be the American Dream, one must give up his or her constitutional right of access to the courts and all consumer law. Unilateral builder contracts, with a take it or leave it attitude, promotes predatory business practices.
When an industry resorts to contractual requirements to deprive consumers of their constitutional rights, then the industry is knowingly unconcerned with delivering a quality, "Made in America" product.
Who would have believed that Builders would include this shameful phrase in their contracts to buy a new home: "…Builder makes no warranty, express or implied as to quality, fitness for a particular purpose, merchantability, habitability or otherwise…" This statement has been adopted, promoted and encouraged by the National Association of Home Builders and pretty much sums up the industry’s intent to defraud the home buying public.
A standard of Habitability is not a burdensome requirement for the construction of a new home.
