Lexington Plantation Housing areasignificant underground water, false advertising of features

J Review updated:

Purchased our new construction home for the investment in a planned community that continues to advertise "deluxe amenities including a community clubhouse, tennis courts, playground, and pool. In addition, Lexington Plantation will include a retail element, offering residents quick access to shops, restaurants, and services."

Owners are paying $100.00 HOAs for the promised amenities and gate. There will be no gate, tennis courts, playground, retail element as advertised.

Worse, many homes were built on underground water structures. Harnett County and builder H & H Homes denies this despite the evidence and repeated damage that the insurance company is unable to insure since new homes are not supposed to be built on active water structures, springs, etc.

Harnett County inflates our water utility bills. Our water bills averaged $100.00 a month. We do not use the sprinkler. Neighbors pay 200 - 300 per month. Water bills in this neighborhood are still high despite limited use.

There will be no gate!!! So those in the Gates who pay $100.00 a month are paying more double in other areas with the same amenities, sans the designated cable requirement.

What about the tennis courts and play grounds? Families moved here with kids who play despite having no designated areas. I, for one, am appalled at the screaming kids riding bikes with no adult supervision. Many of the kids are from the pre-existing neighborhood, which will now no longer be separated.

Last week a Harnett County whistle blower was fired over the same information a Harnett County employee admitted to me: many of our houses were built on underground springs with the approval of county officials. Many of these houses should have never been built.

The builder installed drains and other provisions, but that has not stopped the ebbing spring to push oily water from the ground that oozes around driveways and the edges of lawns. I see this all over the neighborhood.

This may be our chance to improve our situation. Commissioner Gary House stated that “This needs to be brought out to the public…” before the Harnett County board sweeps it under the rug.

    How could this complaint be labeled resolved? We still have springs popping up all over the neighborhood. They even cause severe black ice in cold weather. We still have no extra amenities, other than the original pool and community center that belongs to the first section of the neighborhood, and the other sections pay higher fees as a usage towards their HOA Income. This is preposterous. Which County Commissioner is in this Developer's pocket?

    I resident of Lexington Plantations. The HOA fee is only $30 per month, and not $100. There are several stores and dining facilities. All home owners are able to get home owners insurance, we have USAA insurance.

    I agree 100% with the complaint. I bought my home here (The Gate @ Lexington) in April 2009 and am nothing short of disgusted with the county, the developer and the HOA. ( Home Owners Association) High water bills, broken promises for a gated community, amenities and poor fiber optic service are the norm. In a letter from our HOA today, our T.V. internet, Phone provider (Primecast) and contracted installer (Connexion) have just filed bankruptcy!
