I entered into contract with Deanhard & Davis to build my home. Everything was proceeding well until about two weeks from closing. They started to push to close when the house was not completed and had numerous workmanship issues, some which jeopardized the structure and occupancy of the home.
We agreed before the contract was signed that Deanhardt and Davis would resolve a serious drainage issue. Russ Davis said not to worry that it would be completed by the end of construction and this issue was minor. A week before closing Brian Deanhardt told me that if I didn't close he would start charging interest. He said no home is ever complete at time of closing and that they would fix any items after we closed. Being the first time homebuyer I fell for that scheme and closed.
Of course, even though our contract said all items would be resolved within 30 days of notice, it has been almost three months and my house is not complete. In addition, it is still not built to contract specifications and now they are trying to bill for items they put on the home (an upgraded HVAC) accidentally without our permission. We are also dealing with severe cosmetic issues, door leaks, and poor workmanship that devalue our home.
In addition, the drainage problem is washing out our septic system and putting water directly on our foundation.
The breached their contract, employed fraudulent business practices to close on an incomplete home and bill for items not agreed upong. In addition, their incompetence is jeopardizing the structure and occupany of my home.
