GALVESTON — A Massachusetts couple is suing a homebuilder, alleging his negligence in in the construction process led to the presence of mold on the League City property.
Zupeng Huang and Saijin Zhang of Westford, Massachusetts, filed a complaint June 20 in Galveston County District Court against Taylor Morrison of Texas Inc., Taylor Woodrow Communities — League City Ltd., alleging breach of contact, breach of implied warranties and negligent construction.
According to the complaint, Huang and Zhang purchased for $591,000 a newly constructed home from the defendants on Dec. 5, 2016 at 5005 Isla Canela Lane, League City. The property was to be used as an executive rental home.
The suit says the plaintiffs' home suffered a toxic-mold infestation within two years of the purchase date which the plaintiffs reported to the defendant. The plaintiffs vacated the home in September 2018 after only two months due to the mold that allegedly was caused by heating, ventilation and air conditioning issues.
Huang and Zhang seek trial by jury, monetary relief between $200,000 and $1 million, attorney fees, interest, court costs and all other equitable relief. They are represented by attorney Dax O Faubus of The Faubus Firm in Houston.
