Ne leur donner pas de dépôt car si la transaction tombe à l'eau, ils vont tous faire pour rembourser le moins possible!! Gatineau Quebec
I've dealt with this company for the construction of a house ... They asked me a deposit of $ 10,000 for the construction of this place on my property! I offered $ 5,000.00 and they agreed... What seems strange is that the company will take possession of my land during construction so the need of the deposit was questionable ?? Just to be clear ... They was going to own my land, all notarized and this should have served as enough guarantee!
Then I move on to financing where everything was approved but the company financing company required a deposit of $ 2,400 from me! I mention this to the construction company and they say nothing to that effect! From my point of view, considering that they will take possession of the land and the deposit is not necessary, why not give me back $2400 that the finance company requested to officially close the deal ... But no! They want to keep the $5000.00!
A few months later, I pay the $2400 that the finance company wanted but they refused funding because it took too long for the deposit! They lost confidence! Then we proceed with another bank that refuses because they find that the house is too upscale for the neighborhood ...So I contacted the construction company to tell them that the transaction will not work and that I would like to get my deposit back for construction of the house!
They told me it will take two weeks because there are calculations to be done because they don’t work for free! They told me that the file had dragged on the whole thing cost them money and they want to be compensated for their time! Like any company, a cancellation fee for a canceled transaction is normal, so I said ok, I'll wait two weeks. I head out to their office two weeks later and seller Denis Groulx said he has not done the math yet! I started having concerns as a cancellation fee is standard, this usually reflects a percentage ... There, he began to tell me that there were legal fees, costs for modified plans, and the time he devoted to my file!
Also, I see on their desktop at least three (3) lawsuits ... I said to Denis 'this not all against you'? He replied that yes ...
Then, two weeks later, I show up to the office to get my money and they told me again that they are overwhelmed and they have priorities... I demand to speak with the owner and Denis refuses! So I told him that I do not leave until I talked to the owner! He started yelling at me that I have no business here, he'll call the police, my credit sucks, it's been years since I’ve been bothering them with files that are going nowhere .. . blah, blah, blah! I reply to him that 'my credit sucks because I gave him $ 5000.00 that should have been used to pay my bills instead of going into his pockets! He finally contacted the owner who gave me a redemption date!
I head out to their office that given day and still, nothing! He said he is leaving next week and everything will be resolved before his departure! 5 days later I get a text from Denis who told me that my check is ready! So I go down to the their office and noticed that the $ 5,000.00 is now a sum of $ 2,400.00. He made me sign an invented bill with fees as if these people with no education can charge fees that are equivalent to that of a lawyer! I leave with the check and I am preparing for small claims court because a judge will have the pleasure of making them realize that I did not make a deposit for a service contract but for a home! So to give me a bill for service to justify the seizure of certain amounts does not apply to the eyes of the law and not in their fantasy world!
I also want to mention that this company Operates under 10 different names and several incorporations ... This is a very deceptive practice and a sign of questionable behavior! I should mention they have several phone numbers to make it difficult to reach them ..
