Juliet Homes Informative - Juliet Homes sold me a Lemon!
HOUSTON, TEXAS -- Juliet Homes, Houston based homebuilder, sold me a newly constructed condo unit, which was built shoddy and contained mold. Within 6 months of moving in, I was forced me to move out because of the high levels of toxic mold. The Houston City Health Department inspected and confirmed reports. I am now homeles. Within the first month of moving in I made numerous complaints against the shoddy construction which, at the time, only seemed minor, but Juliet and Tremont failed to acknowledge any repairs I needed. I experienced leaks, discovered cracks, appliances were either not installed yet or did not work (bathtub only had cold water). Within the third month, and after numerous complaints without responses from their management and sales staff (Bernie Kane, Doug Brown, Jorge Casimiro), I began to get sick from the high toxicity level, the leaks they failed to repair were a breeding ground for mold. A strong musty, mildew smell became apparent and my unit tested positive for 4 different molds, 2 which were toxic to humans and as a result I moved out. Juliet Homes, who marketed Tremont Towers and sold me my unit, along with my mortgage (same owners as First Texas Residential) have refused to return any of my calls, certified letters or faxes. I was forced to vacate my home and have lost a substantial amount of money. ($233,905). The unit is unsellable, unlivable and Juliet should take on some responsibility. Since I was forced into signing binding arbitration, I have no legal recourse. Instead of fixing my problem, they have ignored me as they continue to build shoddy, cheap construction elsewhere, which most likely are over appraised. I would not be suprised if the loans Juliet Homes and its entities they are overseeing contain some type of mortgage fraud in the paperwork, Buyer beware of this company!!!
