Country places Inc Don Busby False advertising of House for sale Knoxville Tennessee
My wife and I found country places inc In early November while searching the Internet one evening in far west Texas. The home was listed on there web site as "move in ready." We look at the many photos of the home both inside and out and agreed to call Mr. Don Busby to find out more info on it. We spoke to him the following morning and explained to him that we were interested in the home that was listed in Waynesboro Tn. When we spoke I did make it clear to him that my family would be coming from far west Texas almost an 1100 mile drive. I asked that he be honest with me with respect to the condition of the home. He assured me that it was move in ready condition and that we only needed to bring our furnishings. Mr busby then informed me that I needed to forward the $5600.00 as a down payment for it. I explained to him that I would only forward half until I got there and looked at it, he agreed. Upon completion of our 19 hour drive towing a full uhaul and four horses accross three states we arrives to find out that the power needed to be turned on. My wife and I went to the power company and had power turned on when we returned to the house we found out family dog poisoned by antifreeze that his company used to winterize the toilets. Our family dog had to be put down due to anti freeze poisoning. We then called mr busby and explained what happened. His response was "sorry to hear that." We then came to find out that he house had no heat due to a furnace that did not function. After using heaters and a wood stove to heat the home all winter spring came along with warmer temps. Guess what the ac unit had a hole in the condenser coil and did not function. Not to mention the well pump did not work at all and needed to be re piped and re drilled. Please keep in mind that we were assured that the home was in move in condition. He then had the nerve to ask for the rest of my deposit. My family and I lived in this home for roughly 6 months and paid 860.00 per month for a mortgage that he apparently held on this home. In his "contract" he states that the house is to be insured and that he 1st payee be listed as country places inc the second payee be the bank. After talking to several insurance co I found out that none would insure the home due to a 100amp power line running through the attic without being in conduit and it was deemed a fire hazard. We have since moved on to a better situation but most recently wanted to share with others this experience. Most recently we have found that the same house has been relisted on there web site and again is listed as " move in ready" with the same photos and same listing. The home has no well pump, no AC, no heat and in un insurable. Please don't make the same mistake
If there is an attorney in middle TN that might read this and thinks that they might be able to help my wife and I please feel free to comment and leave your number so that I might contact you. There are other issues with this company that need to be addressed in a court room. Thank you
