DO NOT buy a KB home. Our home is full of defects which KB refused to fix so we joined a group lawsuit as did a huge percentage of owners of these poorly built homes. Not sure about other states, but in "consumer friendly" California, the law is completely on the side of the builder to the point it is corrupt. First, KB was allowed to drag out the mediation process. We purchased our home 10 years ago and have had water coming up through the slab from the beginning. We went to mediation along with other owners and apparently KB is able to ignore anything the mediator says too, even though he is recommending recovery for us. This after two crews of inspectors tore up our home to document the situation. Moreover, only the original owner is eligible to receive anything under mediation. We are original owners but over the course of 10 years, several original owners sold their homes and KB knows this. Then there is the delightful portion of the law that says an owner is only able to address actual damage to the home. So if you have a leaky roof, you can consider damage to drywall but not ask for funds to repair the roof itself. KBs plan is to delay everything with their team of lawyers and not pay a dime to fix the homes they built with cheap workers and cheap materials. Once they have your money, their attitude changes and they do not recognize their 10 year warranty or even the recommendations of a court appointed mediator. In the end, it will be up to each individual homeowner to take them to court which is like David going up against Goliath. Shame on KB.
