  4. The settlement appears to have been handed out fairly. Hopefully something like this never happens again

  5. Home sales will be off because your builder will not do the right thing. There isn’t a Lemon Law for homebuilders in any state. Yet they get an 8,000.00 first time home buyer check? Did you know they don’t have to disclose mold in you new home either? Buy Back you Lemons KB Home. Did you look up Runkle Canyon in Simi Valley California? KB is going to build on a toxic waste dump.
