Brehm Communities / Builder Scams Residents!
Thinking of buying/selling/refinancing a home you bought from Brehm, or in one of Brehm's communities? GUESS AGAIN!!!
This horrendous company boasts of being one of the 'superior' builders in Riverside and other counties. YEAH RIGHT! Heed warning - your home will fall apart 6 months after taking residency! Cracked grout, countertops, flooding, faulty appliances, (a/c units) poor carpet installation, cracked foundation... All part of the package! Make sure you don't custom order. You will find out that they will 'magically' put whatever they feel like in your house instead, and it becomes your problem trying to dispute it. Wrong countertops? Too bad. Wrong tile? Oh well. Good thing you pay ten's of thousands of dollars to customize your home for nothing!
Better yet, Brehm doesn't pay their contractors! As of today's date, nearly 500 homes in Lake Hills Reserve, Riverside have been slapped with nearly $640, 000 in mechanic's liens. Why? Because Brehm alleges that they're in "litigation" with these companies. What does that mean? It could take 5 years to resolve! What else does that mean?
Want to buy a house in Lake Hills Reserve? NOPE!
Want to refinance your house in Lake Hills Reserve? NOPE!
Want to BUY a house in Lake Hills Reserve? NOT GONNA HAPPEN!
Homeowners basically have no rights, unless we want to fork-over the cash for Brehm and pay the liens ourselves. Better yet, in many cases the homeowners will be in default with their original lien-holders once they find out these liens have been placed against their property. Why? Because your mortgage company doesn't want to be ASSURED that they're getting paid first. If there's another $640K lien against your house, your mortgage holder is worried that they're not getting paid!
So thanks to Brehm, none of us can take advantage of the FHA Streamline programs, the Obama Plan, we can't list/sell our homes, and we could have our mortgages yanked right out from under us! DOES THIS SOUND LIKE A PLACE YOU WANT TO LIVE! STAY AWAY!!!
If you've read this, CALL BREHM! The contact person there is Adrianne Nears at the number listed above. She is worthless, but perhaps if enough people call, you can save nearly 500 homeowners from possible default and other repercussions! THIS IS DRASTIC - THEY NEED TO BE STOPPED!
