The National Association of Homebuilders would like the public to think they are a homebuyers best buddy. But read this article telling how disappointed the NAHB is that congress did not let them change the law so that developers could build on contaminated ground, (brownfields), and sell without disclosing, with NO liability:

http://www.nahb.com/news/brownfieldslegislation.htm

This industry has shown that it cannot be trusted to regulate itself, and that homeowners are being stripped of their rights. The NAHB pays lobbyists and lawyers to erode laws, like this one on contaminated ground, while homeowners only have unpaid volunteers, (who are not professional politicians or lawyers), looking out for them. The public needs to know what is going on behind our backs, and speak up about it!

#1 Consumer Comment

Some of the Crooked Homebuilders ARE Members of N.A.H.B.

AUTHOR: Michele - (U.S.A.)

Hello.

The N.A.H.B. is one of the BIGGEST political contributors, that there are. (That can be verified.)

The members of the N.A.H.B. include such people as David Weekley. (I'm sure you've heard of "Weekley Homes" - There have been MANY consumer complaints about THOSE homes that have been built, and lawsuits filed.)

Another member of the N.A.H.B. is Richard Fuller (I'm sure you've heard of "Fuller Homes"; "Richard Fuller Homes". - There have been MANY consumer complaints about THOSE homes being built, too...and many lawsuits filed. TX; OK; and NM)

Right now...the N.A.H.B. are trying to get the following laws passed through Congress, for every state (state by state):

The N.A.H.B. want all future homebuyers to HAVE to agree to "Binding Arbitration".

- "Binding Arbitration" is NOT done by an "unbiased" third party (like they want you to belive.) - & almost always sides with everyone BUT the consumer/homebuyer.

- "Binding Arbitration" costs much, much more...than taking a lawsuit to court.

- "Binding Arbitration" also usually includes a "gag order", whereas the consumer/homebuyer cannot ever talk of their case again. (AND WARN OTHER CONSUMERS ABOUT THE FRAUDULENT HOMEBUILDER)

- "Binding Arbitration" is being hollered by people who are for so-called "lawsuit reform".
(But on the flip side...the N.A.H.B./ and other homebuilders state: they have a "95 % customer satisfaction rating." (Then why holler about lawsuits ??? You can't have it BOTH ways. - something is not TRUE here.)

- Homebuyers give homebuilders MORE than enough time to fix their shoddy construction...before the homebuyers decides their ONLY recourse IS a lawsuit. (We are talking approximately 2 years time...that they are allowing these fraudulent builders to fix things.)

The N.A.H.B. is one of the biggest political contributors/ The N.A.H.B. wants Congress to pass laws that will benefit ONLY them.
(The fraudulent builders who are ending up in lawsuits...are the ones who want these crazy laws passed.)

(Put 2 & 2 together. It's called "pay offs"; "bribes"; "political corruption".)

You know that any "clean-ups" of brownfields, if the NAHB has full authority

AUTHOR: - ()

They filed the following rebuttal to the above Rip-Off Report:

Their email: cschnackel@fourteen.net
Their name: CS

Their relationship to the company: Advocate

Rebuttal:
You know that any "clean-ups" of brownfields, if the NAHB has full authority in this, will be insufficient, because that would eat into the profits...that's why they want to absolve developers of liability and even disclosure.
