GALVESTON — A League City couple is suing a community home manager, alleging the home they purchased had numerous undisclosed defects.
Jordan Faust and Natalie Faust filed a complaint April 9 in Galveston County District Court against Taylor Morrison of Texas Inc. and Taylor Woodrow Communities League City Ltd., alleging negligence, breach of implied warranties, deceptive trade practices and breach of contract.
According to the complaint the Fausts purchased a home from the defendants at 4703 Salinas, League City on Dec. 31, 2014. The suit says the defendants failed to notify the plaintiffs of the numerous defects of the property, including faulty heating, ventilation and air conditioning.
The plaintiffs allege a malfunctioning ventilation and cooling system caused liquid to be retained in the house and mold to grow. Taylor Morrison allegedly made efforts to repair the problem but it was not sufficient.
The plaintiffs say they had to sell the home in 2018 because they were concerned for the health of their children and had to sell it, due to its condition, for below market value.
The Fausts seek trial by jury, monetary relief between $200,000 and $1 million, attorney fees, court costs, damages and all other equitable relief. They are represented by attorney Christopher W. Martin of Martin, Disiere, Jefferson & Wisdom LLP in Houston.
