looking to start class action lawsuit against jim walter homes!!!anyone with information please contact me at gabe3434@gmail.com they have messed up my home and then threaten all the time.

i have a hole in my tub that when brought up they say it is fixed when it is not. they would not do the warranty work they are suppose to be doing. they closed down branches and moved my file around so many times that noone new what was what. my hallway looks like a roller coaster.

the only thing that was ok was the electric and that was becouse i told them what to do and how to do it to pass inspection becouse they did not no the electrical codes.( i am an Electrician)

Add me to the list of class action against Jim Walter Homes. The circuit breakers are burning out one at a time & NOBODY makes a replacement for them! Outside siding is falling off, Plumbing has always leaked, Drain pipes pulling apart & flooding under the house, etc.

We bought a home through Casa Linda Homes 4 1/2 years ago and put a $20000 down payment on the home. We were in our home a few months and our mortgage was sold to Walter Mortgage. I was behind on my mortgage a few weeks, and I had representatives from thier company leaving cards on my door and nasty messages. They forced us to get their insurance and ran our mortgage payment up from 1050 a month to 1700 a month. there was no way we could afford that especially in the neighborhood our home was built in. I hired a litigation company to try and mediate with them and get our payments lowered and they would not have it. I had one of their reps tell me that he could give a rats *** about me and my family it was business and he would through us out in the street in a heartbeat and not feel bad at all. I even filed bankruptcy to try and save our home and was ordered by the attorney to make our regular payment of 1050 and they wouldn't accept it. i was getting cards left on my door telling me to sign over my house to them and they would give us $500 and we had two weeks to get out, I refused. So, we did lose our home and we lost our $20000 down payment. We are still paying on our $20000 as it was a loan. If a lawsuit gets filed please add me to it. My email is michellehperez37@gmail.com. thanks,

JWH old employee

Apr 17, 2012

I was recruited to work for JWH as a Project manager from a high end custom builder. I quit after 6 months, not only because of the corp. monster, but because the clients failed to understand what they were getting for the price tag. There mortgage terms were crazy, you gave up deed rights to your land, you signed up for interest only payments or crazy variable rates, most had subprime credit ratings, they preyed on this and set you up. Yes you all got suckered into buying a cheaply built house with materials made to last at best 5-10 years. They are stick built trailers. All builders offer 1 year warranties, JWH put the cheapest to code items in their houses and you really got what you paid for. Remember building a house to code doesn't mean it’s built with quality. That isn't possible with the price tag. I just have a hard time understanding what all the complaints are about, it like buying a Yugo and *** about it being a *** car when it falls apart. Lucky the Government stepped in to protect dumb *** from their own stupidity and outlawed approving subprime mortgages. When they did this JWH went out of business, because 80% of their clients shouldn’t have been approved.
The scam on subprime is they offered you 9-14% interest rates, with full deed wraps on your land. This makes your 30 year payment as much as a person who bought a $500,000 house. Sorry but…..yes you got scammed out of your land. Walter mortgage made 80% of its profits off

Walter mortgage collector harrassed me on the phone and hit my husband on our property and the police took my husband to jail for self-defense. The payment he came for was wired the next day, then he sent the payment back and then foreclosed on us, we have been in our home for 17 year and owe less than 30,000. We would be glad to join a lawsuit

we had a house built on our 6 ac in 04/08 financed 93,8600. it too is badly build. I'm sure if we ever get a hurricane it will be blown away. Our payments started at 615.00 a year later they went up to 949.00 now they are at 1246.00 because according to them we did't pay our taxas and failed to provide insurance we did pay our taxas and our insurance has faxed and refaxed copies of our insurance We have made attempts to call florida to correct this problem but get no where. now they are threating to take our house. we have put alot of money into this house(it was only a shell)I would never recommend these crooks to my worst enemy

my husband had a jim walters home built in 2002, if he would have paid it all the way out, would have cost him nearly $250,000 for a 70,000. home. It is a poor quality job all the way around, he tried fighting them for a while and kept getting nowhere. I got cabinets around ready to fall off the wall, flooring where nails are showing through because they didn't bother to clean the floors before they laid it. They knew from as many times as he was out here when they were building that he was in a wheelchair, and yet some of the doors he could not get through. This is one company that definitely needs to be shut down and pay people for all their rip offs

we had many many problems building but I stayed on them every single day. I made them come back every single day until every single item was repaired properly. Items such as new cabinets were replaced, stainless appliances that I insisted on, garden tub that I was promised, they put the wrong siding up, they replaced with the correct siding, now I have double insulation because of their screw up. This is just a small list of things they had to redo. I also filed a complaint with the Attorney Generals office along with Contractors Licensing Board, they were wonderful in getting things done. I also acted as my own attorney ( I am not an attorney) and sued them for several thousands of dollars. I won. Stay on them and you will hopefully see results.
