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

Another TRCC Closure: Defective Choice Home Sold on the Auction Block
By Janet Ahmad

For the past 4 years Cam Taylor fought his builder Choice Homes over his dangerously defective house located in Princeton Texas in Collin County .   Taylor ’s house had foundation problems, bricks fell off, defective roof construction, and the builder used an electric company operating under the name Romero Electric that used a subcontractor on the job who was not licensed nor were any of his workers.

Although the city knew of the problems of unlicensed electrical contractors unlawfully operating, the Mayor of Princeton who also serves as the Collin Co fire Marshal took no action.  Due to the defective electrical system Taylor ’s house was considered unsafe and the insurance company canceled his homeowner’s policy.  

The state did fine the master electrician $6000.00 and the Texas Residential Construction Commission (TRCC) confirmed the defects however, Choice Homes failed to make the necessary repairs.
