Description

"Increasingly, buyers are discovering that their new dream home has serious defects and that they have more consumer protections for a $20 toaster than for a flawed investment-of-a-lifetime....The story also reported on the largely successful campaign by the National Association of Home Builders to lobby state legislatures for laws that limit the ability of aggrieved homeowners to sue builders over defective houses. It told of the efforts of grassroots organizations of homeowners such as Homeowners Against Defective Dwellings fighting to preserve the right to sue and fighting for laws protecting consumers from shoddy construction."
