Jim Walter Homes - www.jimwalterhomes.com

Jim Walter homes assured us that we could afford the payment... they proceeded to sign a contract with us and told us that they would be doing all of the legal work, including title search and deed... first, it took them forever to finish... the workmanship is poor... closed on our property without an attorney... i found out later that the title search was insufficient... the property was never probated...the property is not in our name... it is not our property... so we have a house sitting on property that is not ours. Plus we ended up with a 999.00 payment per month... they will not talk to us about the property issue....only they want their money...we are not making the payments right now... they have been a nightmare... Please help... i will not stop looking until i find someone to help... my family is falling through he cracks with this company. There are so many things that they have done. There is not ample room to tell all.

We started a buiding project last July and they still have not poured the footers. I am at my witts end. We have been mislead, lied to, and I have spen numerous dollars getting everything ready to go. They have done nothing they said they wold do and I'm still sitting without a home. I would like to build a class action suit, so if ayone would like to talk to us...251-605-6901. oh, they even closed the office in Chattanooga, TENN. that we were dealing with. This company is terrible!!

We had our home built in 2000 & yet within 8 years we have had problems with the mirrors, floor, counters, cabinets, shower, toilet, air conditioner, rail on front porch, wood on front porch and celing. Not only that for the past 8 years Jim Walter has not reported my payments to the credit bureau agencies yet instead I went through Hurricane Ike this year & was one month behind on my mortgage and they threatened to foreclose on my home because the second month was due in two days. They wouldn't even give me seven days to make the payment.

Jim Walter Homes is Terrible...Very Unprofessional...the homes are not built strong...they do not report your payments to the three major credit agencies...but if you become late on your mortgage they will send paperwork to an attorney requesting foreclosure...please do not obtain their services...alot of people may think that this is the only way to get a home but it is not...there are other ways get a better home...better qualify...better service...better customer service...professionalism...ethical...

god bless...

Anyone have the crappy aluminum windows they used to use? They condense so badly that our walls are molding.

Also, our 19 year old floor is better suited for a skatepark.

i dont think there is anything that is not crappy about my house and my neighbors house is only a little older than mine and has had mold on windows for some time
it does not matter how old your house is you still have rights and need to sue them do not let them get away with the shoddy work and read your contract most that i have seen arent worth the paper they are written on
these people have gotten away with shafting people for many years and it is time for it to stop
talk to an attorney and get him to go over your contracts and mechanics liens and take it from there
from what I am learning they target the minority groups and people that they think cant fight back they raise the payments and you either spend your life paying the or repairing your shoddy home
it is time we all take a stand and fight back for our rights
the board of directors sit on boy scott drive and brag about the money they make each year and keeping getting richer off us while we struggle to pay for a house that is less that project safe they do not care about us other than taking our money
it does not matter what state you are in get an attorney and fight back
if you are in Texas call my attorney Mr Hector P Gonzalez and fight for your rights

Our home that was built by Jim Walters it is pier and chain...well we have had ongoing issues with the walls cracking and house settleing bad!! We being military move so much so we did not have the time to hire anyone to come look..well we are in the area of the house now and have someone there to fix it! come to find out there failed to build it to code and also it has no seals at all!! Tis the reason the place keeps falling down and getting cracks all over! This is a mess! We have no warrenty and were screwed!! They failed to build by code and the inspector in La failed to do his job when it was being built and now we are the poor suckers that are stuck with a house that was not built to code and we are shelling out the $$$ not fair!! Please contact me if there's anything we can do about this because Jim Walters is the one responsible for this..cannot build not in code and take peoples money and get away with it!! alleykaye2011@hotmail.com

Another sucker here I guess.Our Victorian home was built in 2005 and we found out later all of the floors were uneven..walls began cracking, ceiling cracking as well as vinyl siding.When I called Jim Walter homes they told me they no longer sold homes and only accepted payments!! You can imagine the disgust and anger we felt.To add to the trouble the way they built the house water is running underneath it.They were suppose to underpin it..I mean they had the blocks and all beside the house and later the salesman Ron told us they Didnt need to know because no water would run underneath it.Please help someone..I'm in South Carolina email is rosalynwilliamson00@AOL.com

HELP!!! PLEASE!!! My husband and I had our home built in 2004! Our floor in our dining room has BIG gaping holes in it!! We can NOT find the problem as to why these holes are in the middle of our floor! We had a man come out and take a loo and he said that it was because of poor quality boards that was put down from the beginning! Cheap pasted particle boards were used! We are SICK about this! If the cheap boards were used in our dining room, that means they are throughout the house... upstairs and downstairs! I am sick and scared of falling through the floors upstairs! I DO NOT feel safe in my own home! The repairs have been going on and on ever since we moved into our home several years ago!!! NON-STOP repairs. This company is a JOKE! We have NEVER had a minute of rest from all of the repairs we have had to do since day one!!! HELP someone, anyone! Please, We want to take them court asap!!! Please tell us how to go about doing this. Thanks in advance!
