Lennar Defective Homes in Hutto Texas
The Hutto News
Lennar lied to homeowners
Let's be realistic. When given a choice, people would not choose to build on expansive soil if they know that it will be a constant maintenance problem in the future. People don't intentionally buy new houses or new cars knowing that they will have to deal with high maintenance. We bought new homes not fixer-uppers.The issue everyone seems to ignore is I and many others were deceived by Lennar. By cutting corners to increase profits, Lennar willfully submitted a Builder's Certification that they had complied with HUD minimum standards, and falsified that there was no expansive soil. I did not choose nor am I willing to take the risk that what appears to be substandard foundations, will not stand the stresses of the expansion and contraction of this soil. Lennar has built a defective community and property values are falling because of their deceptions. They have jeopardized the good people who trusted them and trusted the City of Hutto to protect the welfare of their citizens.
Hutto Parke residents deceived by developer
Lennar lied to its customers when selling these homes by certifying they were not built on expansive soil. The fact is not only were the buyers lied to, but HUD as well, which is a crime?...This is a question of honesty and integrity for the sake of the almighty dollar and irresponsibility development...The majority of homeowners just want Lennar to buy these homes back. They don't want to move in and out, in and out, for cosmetic repairs. They want out of these homes and move on to a city where honesty and integrity are of some importance to all - the city, the builders and the people. If Lennar buys the houses back the problem is solved. Read more...
Residents want to forget building horror
I would love to move on with my life, and so would some of my neighbors in Hutto Park subdivision...I have invested my entire life savings to acquire a structurally defective home on expansive soil that was built, in my opinion, by dishonest, unethical builders, developers, city inspectors and sub-contractors that were out to make a big dollar. It is unconscionable for anyone to be sold a new house that would never pass an inspection. Read more...
Expansive soil was not fully disclosed
It would seem the City of Hutto put too much trust in Lennar and it was blinded by collecting more tax revenue. If they had inspected, we would not be having this discussion. Dan McDowell is the city employee that is partially responsible for these problems. A quote from Dan McDowell, Everything that is built in Hutto goes through me. What a joke! Of course, the problems are very important when the real problem is not addressed. The problem is about honesty, trust, integrity and ethics. You can use any normative ethical principle to analyze this situation and will come up with the same conclusion. You must fully disclose. Read more...
