— Press Conference — 

Georgia Homeowners seek consumer protection of a
New Home Lemon Law  

                   Georgia    Disgruntled Homeowners gathered at the Capitol to support the need for a New Home Lemon Law and attest to shoddy homebuilding practices in Georgia , worthless home warranties, and no builder accountability due to forced binding arbitration, which denies homebuyers access to the courts.

The April 14, 2010 edition of Forbes Magazine published an article titled
“Eight Dream-Home Dupes – New building exploded during the housing boom. So did lazy construction practices.”

Another study by JD Power and Associates found that new home complaints were on the rise, ranging from nail pops, lower-quality wiring, to walls and foundation cracks.

Georgia new homebuyers are vulnerable to irresponsible builders. Homeowners are denied their constitutional right to their day in court to hold a builders account for defective homes” said, Greg Cole.  “Georgians deserve a New Home Lemon Law.”

Cole, a frustrated John Wieland homeowner led a delegation of Georgia homeowners to Washington , DC last year to support the Arbitration Fairness Act (AFA) filed by Congressman Hank Johnson and Senator Russ Feingold that is currently pending in Congress.

“Every state in the nationa has a Car Lemon Law to protect new car buyers, why should new homebuyers not have the same protections under the law in Georgia ,” said Janet Ahmad, National President, of Home Owners for Better Building .  “We are here to support effective homebuilder accountability.”
