And why would the Developer have known any of this? Why haven't the Police charged the man with filing false Police reports? Maybe there is more to the story!
It is your responsibility to do your HOME WORK don't depend on others to do this as you may fail the test. Idiots like this make me sick; always wanting to score big ($$$$ in law suits) due to their OWN FAILURES.Frank Bowers, FIC; 100% DAV; Class of 1937; Austin, TX
WOW, I live in heaven I guess, whatever happen to be nice to your new neighbor's? we do it here, remember the basket, some cake, some goodies and a smile and an offer for help in any way, need a sitter? need a gardener? need a ride to almost anywhere? and more, all the help is in our neighborhood and we have cards printed up and give them out to new neighbors, its been a hoot and no one fights, teens and little ones, all going well. Just New Years eve passed, no one had to worry about a sitter or a ride, it was all taken care of. I'm not moving ever!!!!!!!!!
Hi there, you must live in heaven if you were welcomed that way, lol. I have lived in different towns over the years and not once did anyone welcome me or my family ever, that crap is only seen on tv, and the buyer to this story should have done her homework and realized who she was living next too before she made the big step of moving there.
There are lots of places where neighbors care about their neighborhood. I live in one in Northwest Florida where the entire neighborhood of more than 300 homes participate in Christmas luminaries every year. I know almost every neighbor up and down both sides of my street. We have neighborhood block parties in a cul-de-sac usually once a year. We look out for one another, and keep our neighbors informed of strange activities, like bears walking the neighborhood looking for food or suspicious cars or walkers. We have a garden club that meets once a month and a neighborhood newsletter that garden club members deliver throughout the neighborhood. We have meetings with the sheriff's office over solving problems in the neighborhood. It's all about people who care about getting involved to make their community a better place in which to live.
Bringing a cake or small gift is very "old school" and nice and we did that years ago. Unfortunately it has gone out of style with dual professional couples, etc., now. People don't have the time they used to, OR stay in the same neighborhood as long as they used to. This situation mentioned in this article doesn't give much information. I'm guessing it's simple "racism" maybe. Hard to imagine in 2014, but this world has all kinds.....;o/
Fair housing laws make it illegal for a developer to make any comments regarding the neighbors or community in general. Technically, they couldn't even say something complimentary about the neighbors, neighborhood safety, or quality of schools. Anything like that could be considered steering a customer away or towards certain communities.
we can read, write the stories out! geez! i dont want to watch the crappy drivel. in fact, lots do not care to either...
damn right !!!!
I agree. I get really tired of having to watch a video when it's just easier to read the story.
It's not up to the developer to "warn " a person about the neighbors.How would they know what each person living there is like? Do your research before you move into any neighborhood. Ask neighbors in the area before signing on the dotted line.
According to the video, the developer knew there was a problem with the guy prior to her purchase.
According to the video the woman made that claim. There is no proof offered that the developer knew it.
Didn't watch the video / commercial, but must the seller now do a background check on neighbors for full disclosure? Can't wait for a neighbor to sue for breech of privacy.
Financially, buying a condo or townhouse is a much bigger "gamble" than a 3 bedroom, 2 bath single family home. Do a LOT of research before purchase.
Buying a condo or townhouse is like rolling the dice as far as who your neighbors are going to be-it's not the builders fault. "Let the buyer beware" has been around for a while for good reason
actually, you are rolling the dice even if you buy a house.
Nothing worse than a "neighbor from hell", but the seller (maybe just a realtor) may not have known about the situation. Not sure there is a case here based on the little information provided in the article. Would be interesting to hear if the home owner's association or the condo board was aware of this guy prior to her moving in. That's where the power actually lies.
My parents had the neighbor from hell and when they sold their home...they advised the new homeowner of the situation out of respect. Today, the new home owner has problems with the neighbor from hell and has now put up a 6 foot fence around his property to keep him out! At least he was aware of what he was getting into...but he loved the area and the house!
Also Lennar is a mid range home builder... not the type of properties with tight restrictions or condo boards that do extensive background checks... As long as the guy mows his lawn, keeps his trash can hidden from sight, and doesn't park an RV in the Drive way...they really don't care. Very expensive, gated communities may have background checks but most condo boards aren't involved until after you purchase and move into your property. I feel sorry for her...but I'd just move...
