Whatever happened to consumer protection? Don't we have anyone watching out for our interests?
My son and his family wanted a home in the country. They found a parcel of land, 2 1/2 acres. His offer to purchase said the parcel had to be buildable. He had a Realtor, the seller had a Realtor!
The seller was supposed to have perc tests done. The escrow closed in spite of the perc tests not being done. This was Lot 11 of La Corina Ranch Tract G, more explicitly 533 Robinson Road.
My son had perc tests done and was advised not to build there as the water table was too high and the drainage flowed in a northwesterly direction. Others who have built out there are experiencing septic problems. My son rescinded his contract, his broker disappeared, his agent declared bankruptcy and no one returned any of his money.
