Bartow County New Homes / Multiple home problems!

1 United States Review updated:

My children and I purchased a new home over a year and a half ago in Bartow County Georgia. When purchasing the home, we were promised the world. 1 year warranty, etc. Upon moving in home, we noticed things were not working, septic was bubbling in toilets and lumber buried in yard.

I went to court house to complain to find that the contractor has his wife working in the department where you file the complaint. We now have a new home that is falling apart. Mold is growing in the basement and septic leaks. Over $20,000 in repairs. Contractor, Mike McMillain, refused to come back and repair home. I hired an attorney to run up over $14,000 in attorney fees. Now contractor says he will repair home but we are so much in debt due to the problems that I can't afford to pay back all the attorney fees to make him come back.

This is a serious issue in Bartow County with new Home owners. I was purposely attacked because I was a single woman disabled with a disease. He did not do this to others that had husbands to stand up for them. My children and I are sick daily from the smell of septic and mold and no one will help us. Attorney fees are so expensive and told just to lose our life savings and forget what this horrible man did to me and my children.

Please post my issue. This happens to so many unsuspecting women and I am not able to fight back due to my health. He has become a wealthy person by doing this to newcomers in the community and we have no organization to help us. Please help us.

    Bartow County Mold Home. This became a serious issue for this family. They almost died. Family had placed entire life savings of $77, 000 down on home and now have lost everything. This dragged out for 3 years costing the entire family a serious medical problems and financial loses so bad that they are now bankrupt, mold destroyed everything they owned and homeless. I was horrified to read this story and find that the Contractor, Mike McMillan, filed bankruptcy leaving this family homeless. He had continued to build homes while she was left with raw sewage in a child's closet. All of this was serious violations that the Courthouse refused to investigate. Recently, I saw on TV where CBS investigated the Bartow County Courthouse. They did not deny that they did not investigate her complaints. In fact, the comment was made, "what good would it had done." It appears a few people in this courthouse should not have their job, most of all the persons in that dept. I have never heard of a Contractor's wife being allowed to handle inspections with her husband as a Contractor. That is conflict of interest. It also appears that her complaints were lost when she complained to the courthouse. My husband and I found her website. She is in need of serious help. She has a website called http://mygeorgiamoldhouse.com . Google has a story about how deadly her mold was in her home. Appears to be Healthy Air, Stephen Andrews. Not sure of the website. We typed in Judy Harrison Mold and found his report. It appears Bartow County Courthouse should be sued for refusing to make this contractor come back and allowing her family to almost die. I hope CBS, ABC and other major News Agencies find out about her story. She deserves her money back from the Contractor or whoever it is that allowed this. This is as some call the "Good Ole Boy System." If we could help her, we would. I saw that CBS did try to reach the Contractor and he refused to be interviewed. That right there shows his guilt. I am mad about this story. She doesn't have a home and he is able to continue on with his life while she and her family has medical bills. The Justic System in Bartow County needs to be investigated.
