Description

Thousands of new homes in Arizona suffer from foundation problems. "But while cracking foundations are mostly due to poor soil conditions, mitigation is both legally required and fairly inexpensive. The problem, Fenske learned, is this: Instead of following the law, some Arizona builders chose to save a few hundred dollars per house." The owners of the flawed homes often find that they have no choice but to file a lawsuit against the builders.
