Started this process in 2009..went to Palm Harbors Homes to try a nd buy a new home. After they showed us some homes they informed us that we would have to go through a credit counseling service and they knew one would could go to which cost us even more money at their request.
Scott then informed us that we could qualify for a used mobile home and gave us a list we could go and see the homes. We finally found one and noticed that there were several issues that needed to be addressed. There was no air conditioner, no electricity hooked up to the home,no septic hooked up, etc. We addressed the issues and Palm Harbor assured us that they would fix the problems.
We assumed they would so we went ahead with the purchase of the house. An inspection got scheduled and we informed Palm Harbor we wanted to be there when it happened. [continued below]....
..... It happened but they never contacted us to be there. We are not sure how they did it since there was still no power or water going to the house for the inspector to check everything. We never even got an inspection report to know what was wrong with the home.
So far and we have only had the home for 2 years we have had to replace the septic pump twice since the company they hired put in used septic pumps. The windows leak and we informed Palm Harbor about it and they said they would fix it but never sent anyone to do it. The roof is starting to bow down which means the roof is going bad. The nails on the front porch and back porch are lifting showing and stairs are coming loose which meant that it is old and needed to be replaced.
We have had to rewire the entire kitchen for faulty wiring, not one of the smoke detectors is in working condition, and the exhaust fan in the main bathroom turns off the electric in the living room if it is turned on. Not one of these issues were brought to our attention before the house was purchased which also tells us that a inspection from Palm Harbor was not conducted correctly since there was no power or water to the house at the time.
