Lennar sold a bogus home

This is an update regarding my adventures with Lennar. A few weeks ago they sent a rep to look at the new issues we had with our 4 year old house. He informed us that although the entire lower level of the house was wired on one circuit breaker, the code in 2007 allowed a contractor to do this. That the leak was caused by the trim coming off the exterior of the house but it had originally been installed correctly and the wear and weather of FOUR years caused it to come apart and of course they are not responsible. That the mold around the front door was caused by the door sash not screwed on properly but we could take care of that issue, no mention on cleaning or replacing the door sash. That the paint and frame peeling was just normal wear and tear. This house is only FOUR years old and I need to have it painted!!! DO NOT BUY FROM LENNAR

Lennar only looks into the situation. They have a big company, with big lawyers.

They will look and tell you that it is your problem. I know, I have a lennar home. Cheap is the name of the gam e, they know people don't have the finances to battle them, and they are willing to take that gamble. My sister bought a nice DR Horton for half the price and more sq.

ft., It is built like a tank compared to my home.

It has been one year and wood stain is fading, trim is warping, morter is crumbling, lennar builds 1/2 the quality at 3/4 the price. Knock-off custom homes is the term I give them.

My wonderful Lennar home has so many flaws. Starting with the electrical system, the hard wired sprinkler system, the garage door collapsing the window leaking water causing a stain and crack on the ceiling, the master bedroom so cold in the winter and too warm in the summer, the upper level too hot in the summer,the paint chipping on the outside windows, the front door warping and now the SIDING HAS CRACKED AND IS BREAKING OFF. Of course Lennar takes no responsibility for any of these and the house is under five years old.

Its amazing how horrible Lennar is, you expect to purchase your home something you work hard for and earned only to find out that the quality is absolutely trash. Works are next to nothing on the hired skill set and yet can barely speak English.

I paid 350,000 for a home that was built by the cheapest labor force on earth and who have no idea on self value nor pride in what they do. The only thing Lennar cares about is the bottom line, MONEY.

I can go on and on and list what is wrong but Lennar knows that they build absolute trash and I would never recommend them to my worst enemy. Where every you are located don't buy and for sure if your in Holly Springs NC 27540 please look to purchase off another company.

I understand what you are going through. I purchased a home from Lennar almost 6 years ago and we still have a boarded up front door. We are stuck with $100k in construction defects. To make my story even worse is the fact that I worked for Lennar. Contact me with your story and I will post it on my website that I am currently putting together. Be careful with "their help". We spent 5 years in litigation and all that happened was more expert costs, and lawyer costs, to the point that we received nothing for our construction defects.

I want to hear your stories. We all need to hear your stories in hope to make it right.

Thanks for the input. At first, I was looking at KayBee homes until I read their awful reviews, which are similar to Lennar's. Now, I'm wondering if I should just buy a good piece of land and pitch a tent on it?!
