February [protected]- our home was defective from time construction started to construction finish. The "supervisor" would not make us sign off on several items because he knew they were not code standard for two story home. He left the original blueprint to the house along with statements saying OSB was NOT to be used on two story home and was. Now all corners of every door in house has cracked because of the way the house was not constructed correctly on the corner supports. We have NUMEROUS photos of construction that no one ever wanted to look at because they knew it was not being built correctly. The original salesperson, James Butler that was in Lufkin, Texas office, was let go shortly after the contract/lending was approved. We are now with the third mortgage company since original JWH filed bankruptcy and now we find out via mail that DITECH has filed for bankruptcy. We are not wanting any money for all the sicknesses or the payments we have made on our home. We are looking to have lien paid in full by these thieves for the shoty work they agreed to when contract was executed. If attorney is involved their fees should be paid.
We purchased a Jim Walter home about three years ago and have been having problems ever since. We have called several times about the problems with our home, and always get the run around.
We called Chris Little in McComb, and the only responses we ever get back is that once we got the keys it is no longer their problem. I mean what is the point of your warranty?
If you are even one day late then you get harrassing phone calls and they are always telling you to get out of the house. I have been told multiple times that I can't afford the home. I can't afford it because it is a piece of crap and I am constantly making repairs.
Something should be done about this company and their rude employees. We hired a lawyer in south Mississippi named Hector Gonzales, and he is willing to take Jim Walters on. If you are having problems with your home and are ready to get results, you should contact him.
I purchased my home less than 10 years ago, I'm now having structural problems with my floors. I have holes in my floor near my kitchen door and the remaining floors in the kitchen, laundry room, both bathrooms and hall area are very weak. I tried to notify the company in the past with no return. I'm unable to repair the floors myself, I'm not sure if there is a warranty for the floors at this time. This is a structural problem and i feel the builder is at fault. I would appreciate any direction as this is urgent.
The racks in the closet are falling and the back door frame is comming apart and my house is four years old they didnt do a good job at all.They wasn't finish when they said it was going to be finish. The master bathroom sink counter is comming apart from the wall.Two pieces of siding done fell off the house.I think they just would have taken there time it would have been put together properly like they should have but they didnt so they get a F from me If they was still in business I wouldn't refer no one to them to get a house built.
I am a single mother of two, who really wants to stop renting and own my own home but due to bad credit, it is hard for be to obtain financing. I saw this cut Jim Walter for sale in my local area. I called and the so-called loan officer to be what the asking was for the house which was a little too steep, but he said that we could work something out with bad credit because I had enough income. I went into his shanty office on Monday to do the three page app. I was told that it would only take about 2 days to get an approval.I thought that I had struck gold. so I got all the income in to the officer and one the second day, I called the loan officer back and he said, that everything was looking good and that he would know by the end of week, I of course questioned him about the one or two days that he first told me that it would take to get approved and he said, that the mortgage company was getting slower and things were looking good, and that I had not got turned down as of yet. I just wanted that after a week or so of back and forth, they came back and so that they could not approve me because of my credit score. I had bad credit from and they lied and led me on. Who ever heard of JW checking credit. Please beware of the lies and the high prices. Their houses are not all that any way. You don't have to lie just tell the truth upfront, me and kids were very dissapointed.
My home has no heat, or air. The structure has falling apart and I haven't had the house over five years. They didn't complete inside no appliances. Didn't measure the doors right on my closet's so they left my doors laying on the floor. didn't do the inside of my walls. And they put my two storage home on very high bricks. It's sitting very dangerous and I'm so scared if a tornado come through it's going to blow me and my kids away. And it leaks from upstairs.
I have a very defective Jim Walter home as well as many other families in the 17 states that they built homes in and i have an attorney i can not name any longer on here because their nice attorney Mr Kenneth Culbreth says i am trying to get clients for my attorney I only hope that if yo have a defective home you seek the help of an Attorney if not mine one of your own
and If you live in South Texas and have to have your house inspected by Jim Walters and their attorney don't be fooled by the very Beach boy looking Attorney with the painted on jeans and pretty blond hair or smile
He is just waiting to chew you up in the hearings and I have been to mediation he is a great whit shark in mediation so I can only guess how he is in arbitration
but do not let that bother you the facts are the facts if you have a defective home you need to fight for your Rights if you have a good house then you have no reason to fight but in my case and many others we truly have defective homes.
they offered to let us deed back the house instead of going through a foreclosure, i sent them the keys to house with address where to send papers, they marked envolope return to sender. the following week there where for sale signs all over our house. how can they sell it with it still in our name. then this week i get notice they are forcably putting insurance on the house in our name and adding $3000 to our final bill. they sold it to us with no sewer system, took 18 dump truck loads to clear the debris out of the front yard. the plumbing will not drain, no insulation in walls. we started with payments of a little over $400 when we made downpayment, after downpayment was made they came back and made us sign two more contracts ended up with payments over $700. they are rip offs never do bussiness with JIM WALTERS they will screw you over every time not good bussiness practices. we need a good lawyer
Jim Walter Homes did not finish our house on time. causing us to have a breach of contract with the bank because Jim Walter HOmes did not finish on time. They got their money and ran. and so did the bank Republic State Mortgage. My family did not get teh home we wanted and are very upset. Jim Walter Homes sucks. I wish i would have never purchased a home through them. I will never do it again. Because of them we didnt even get the house when it was finally done. They suckkkkkkkkkk!!!111

Dear Gisgruntled Jim Walter Homes customers: My complete frustration with Jim Walter homes originates in the very sub-standard construction, however the following Jim Walter business practices may fall outside of their arbitration protection (careful notes should be collected throughout your dealings with Jim Walter Homes): Anything unusual in the financing of your home including posting dates of payments made (interest charges); manipulation or pressure used to tender the house; statements/promises made prior to contract signing or after tendering; availability of english speaking supervisor at the job site; hazardous material dumped or buried at site (especially within clean water act areas); and presence of obvious mold on building materials prior to installation. Protect yourself; take numerous notes!

I have electrical problems and structure problems inside and out -I tried to find some help but all this happened around the hurricane and not enough lawyers to take on a case like this if anyone knows of anyone who wants to take on the case let me know at [protected]-joy
I have all the proof you needed to destroy these people my gfis and the phones not working and now an electrician has told me some more bad news about the electric box it is missing some grounded wires and more I am yrs later and still need help Jim Walters will not help and I have proof of that also from the hm office.
We questioned jim walter in reference to a deferral and they treated us like we were the worse people on this earth and we have only been late twice after 15 years. We were told that they were sick and tired of us and that they were going to foreclose on us and file legal.
Finally we were told we could send the payment in in four sections along with the regular payments, but we must call with the check #, the date the payments were mailed and if the date was one day different than the mail date they would send our money back and file legal.
We have been called lairs, cursed out and so many other things by these people. Buyers beware.
I like the first complaint I read was mislead by the representative into thinking I could afford the paymebts. Finally after getting the paperwork completed it took forever for them to get started on the house. Then they threw it up so fast that I knew I would have problems and sure enough I did. It rained during the building and they didn't let the ground dry and settle before continuing so as a result the house shifted causing problems with the foundation such as doors not closing and cracks in the wall. Their comment was foundation problem not their problem. Then they decided that my insurance wasn't good enough so they force placed insurance on my house causing my payments to go even higher to the point I couldn't afford but still I struggle to keep the house. All the while them calling and harrassing me talking about foreclosure. Then when I managed to work with my insurance company to correct the insurance problem. They told me it still wasnn't good enough. I'm still struggling to pay for the home but only because my dead husband worked so hard for that property and because that is where he died, otherwise I would have give up a long time ago. They have made my life a living hell almost to point of a nervous breakdown. So next buyer beware.
