This was all paid in cash... $500.00 for floor plans, paid in full. $22,000.00 house deposit paid in full. $8,100.00 for site work paid in full. Glens Falls Modular Homes also owns Dig a Hole Excavation. We hired Dig a Hole to do our site work to "eliminate the hassle". They got all their cash at the end of May 06. They worked up all the bids, with the exception of the engineer.
They handed off our plans to the engineer we found before we even gave the go ahead or had a contract w/ him. They neglected to tell him about our bilco door and as it turns out they did the same thing to another home buyer down the street. That was the excuse they needed.
Although we resolved the issue w/ the zoning board in 2 days, they insisted that we had held them up (although they never dug the hole until July 4th). From that point on it was a nightmare. I spoke to the cement guys that THEY hired and they told me that they were doing other jobs for them and kept being sent off our site. The foundation finally got finished, but Dig a Hole left piles of dirt all over the property. They also backfilled the foundation w/out the house on it, which will damage it and cause the house not to fit.
Then came the frantic emails and calls that the house was coming and we delayed them. NOTE: the contract CLEARLY states that they are to notify us 7 days prior to delivery in WRITING via certified letter, courier or telefax (w/ a certified letter that we received the fax). They have yet to do that. The contract also states that they are to attempt to deliver from the factory to our property in order to be able to charge a redelivery fee. They claimed that our property was too small to leave the house and took it to their property (illegedly). Later they told the lawyer, that the property was big enough, there was a pile of dirt in the way HELLO! Who left the dirt there?
We still have no proof that they ever even ordered the house or that they have it. NOW they are saying that we breached the contract because we will NOT pay the redelivery and interest fees because THEY breached the contract, not us.
We signed a contract for a brand new house from the climate controlled factory to our property. NOT for a house that has been sitting in pieces at some unknown location! Two lawyers later, we still have a basement and everyone telling us to just cough up the extra cash. It's very simple... We paid our hard earned CASH in the amount of close to $50,000.00 to have the site ready (PER THE CONTRACT). How can they just invent a breach on our part and take our cash? They now are saying that due to our breach, they will sell the house and keep our cash.
I'm not paying their ransom for a house that we're not even sure they actually have. We have asked for a bill of lading, to prove they have or have had the house for as long as they say. Their lawyer has not complied, as she says she does not have it. HOW DOES THEIR LAWYER NOT HAVE THEIR PROOF IN HER FILE? This is madness and from what I hear from lawyers and contracters up there, this is how they do "business". Our lawyer says he has sued them 3 or 4 times and if the people do pay the ransome and get the house, it doesn't fit the foundation because Dig a Hole backfills when they shouldn't. This causes thousands of dollars in repairs which other people are also suing them for.
At this point, WHY would I give them one more sent of my money for a piece of garbage? If the $22,000.00 house deposit didn't bring the house, why would I believe that paying the ransom will guarantee the house comes and fits and is not water damaged or worse, from sitting heaven knows where.
These people are simply bad people that have gotten away w/ this for close to 15 years because people get scared and cave in.
I don't expect them to return our money on a silver platter. I want them stopped and revealed as the true thieves and liars that they are. How dare they prey on honest, hard working people? It's sickening. Don't let it happen to you. Run the other way.
