Description

With new houses going up all the time in central Indiana, many builders are offering new homes with little down and small monthly payments. An investigation by WISH-TV found that many new homes weren't exactly up to code and many had very serious and dangerous violations. Reporters found that because of the housing boom the city's housing inspectors were overwhelmed and often under trained. Because of the series, the state attorney general began an investigation into the inspectors and the builders.
