KB HOME LAWSUITS.  (link to all)

JURYTRIAL3It’s been a long time coming, butshhh the lawsuits are finally hitting the fan!  KB Home, like most builders,  prefers arbitration.  The benefits?  It costs less and is supposed to save time.   What arbitration actually does is keep complaints and building defects secrete and out of the public records.

If you’ve ever been so angry at the house you own and the service and repairs that KB Home provides – and  Googled “KB Home Lawsuits”, you know you come up with a big surprise.  There are hardly any!   How can that be, you ask yourself – knowing what it means to own one of these homes- it’s not possible.  Hold on, the tide is turning!
