A message from HADD Homeowners

Many in the building industry would like you to believe that consumer groups and the media are trying to sensationalize the issue of defective new housing and serve only to needlessly alarm prospective home buying consumers. Nothing could be further from the truth. We have firsthand knowledge of the crisis in defective housing, which includes deficient building materials being used nationwide. We are not attorneys, nor builders, but homeowners who are living and working out of our own deficient new home nightmares.  Too much confidence is placed on the building industry and immune municipal building inspections. Residential contractors (builders) and developers are in the business for a profit. Always remind yourself of that fact. The real estate agent will get a percentage of the sale as well as the builder.

So, who works for the home-buyer in this process? No one works for the home-buyer.  Arm yourself with information!
