A: I'm sorry you are having problems with a Builder. We do a lot of construction law and home builder cases. There is a lot of variation on how effective the people are and how well they deal honesty and we have handled dozens of Builder disputes/lawsuits.

It sounds like you may need to seek the assistance of an Attorney/Mediator/Arbitrator to see if is possible to resolve the matter amicably BEFORE you close on your home's purchase. If you wait after that, your legal rights and available solutions are much more restricted. Also, some Builders put language in their contracts removing your ability to even go to Court to try to get help. Please set up a no fee, no obligation consultation and sit down with a Construction/Real Estate Lawyer.
