If you have purchased a home from DR Horton and they are not fixing issues with the home, there are several steps you can take to address the situation:
Contact a third-party inspector: Generally, homeowners notice some, but not all issues in their home. If you have noticed some issues with the construction of your home, you may consider hiring a third-party inspector to assess the issues and provide a report. This report can be used as evidence when dealing with DR Horton.
Review your warranty: Check your home warranty to determine what types of repairs are covered and what the warranty process is. DR Horton typically provides a one-year builder's warranty, as well as additional warranties for specific components of the home.
Contact DR Horton: Reach out to DR Horton and explain the issues you are experiencing with your home. It is possible that they will agree to make repairs or provide other remedies under the terms of the warranty.
Document the issues: Make a list of all the issues you have experienced with your home, including any communications you have had with DR Horton regarding repairs. Take photos and videos of the issues to document them.
Consider legal action: If DR Horton is not addressing the issues with your home and you believe that they are in breach of their warranty obligations or have committed fraud, you may need to take legal action. This may involve filing a lawsuit against DR Horton or pursuing other legal remedies. You should be aware that there are strict legal deadlines. If DR Horton is not fixing your hoe, you should seek legal advice to determine how much time left you have to pursue legal action if you chose to do so. You do not want your claims to be barred by these legal deadlines.
Dealing with issues with a newly constructed home can be frustrating and stressful. It is important to be persistent in your efforts to have the issues addressed, and to seek legal advice if necessary.
