We got approved for a united-bilt home in Nov. 2005 and got some help with our down-payment of 12,000 dollars. After we went looked at a newer home that was already built, we agreed that we liked it.
A couple of days later our son got badly hurt, and we went ahead and signed papers for the house. After we signed papers the salesman Terry insisted of going to the house, He took us to a house in the next town.
And that was the house that we just signed for.. He said it was 4 years old, and we later found out that it was over 25 years old. The neighbors across road had seen people in and out of the house for the 30 years she lived across from it.(Found out after we moved in)
Having no choice because of our son getting badly hurt by our current neighbors dog,(had to be life flighted to childrens hospital.) We went ahead and moved in.
So we are paying for a 25 years old + house as if it is a 4 year old home.
After a few days we relized that the septic was backed up and rain had been getting in it because there was a pipe that didnt even have a cap on it on the outside of house, and the lids on the septic tank doesnt even fit right.
The ceilings had fresh popcorn spray on them, and now we know why...To hide the seams of the sheetrock where it had been coming down. Now, it is showing thoughout the whole house..
Our son throw a toy and it hit the wall causing a small peice of sheetrock to fall, there is NO INSULATION in the walls, and our electric bill proves that.
It stays hot in the summer and cold in the winter, with the heater on in winter and A/C on 24/7 in the summer.. Sometimes I think it feels better outside.
Our living room does even have a light in it, the salesman told us that it was a new thing, to plug in a lamp on flip a switch for it to come on..
After moving in we have noticed several cracks in the walls and ceiling.
The kitchen floor is totaling unlevel. And even some of the door frames are unlevel and the doors will even shut right.
Our hot water tank leaks and all united bilt says to us is you bought the house as is..
The salesman told us that our payments would be about $350. but when we got our bill it is $509.19, they say the reason for that is interest.
Honestly,I Would rather live in a trailer than a united bilt home. Or even a travel trailer and thats pretty bad cause we are a family of 5..
United-Bilt is ridulous.. and a major rip-off.
