New Construction And Remodeling Issues

Molosky & Co. negotiated cancellation of our client’s purchase/construction agreement with builder/developer for a custom-built new home.

Our client entered into a purchase agreement with a builder/developer to purchase a newly constructed home in a sub-division/development in Metro Detroit. Just prior to our client obtaining the certificate of occupancy for the home and paying the balance of the purchase price, he questioned the quality of the home’s construction and many of the “a la carte” upgrades that he elected. The builder/developer was unwilling to address any of our client’s concerns, instead accusing of him of having “buyer’s remorse.” Within 3 weeks of intervening in this dispute, Molosky & Co. assisted our client secure the cancellation of the purchase/construction agreement for this custom home, plus the return our client’s $25,000 down payment. Remarkably, our client walked away from the deal paying the builder/developer just $1,000 toward a several hundred thousand dollar purchase/construction agreement.

Molosky & Co. secures easement agreement that protects our client’s enjoyment of their property and prevents our client from being held liable for any costs associated with the easement.

The owner of an undeveloped lot sought an underground sanitary sewer line easement under and across our client’s property. Our client trusted Molosky & Co. to protect him from liability arising from the sewer line and to protect his enjoyment of his own property. The extensive final agreement states the benefiting party is responsible for any and all costs relating to the installation and maintenance of the sewer line, must notify our client before commencing installation or any maintenance work, and must indemnify, defend, and hold our client harmless as to any costs, liabilities, and/or damages related to the sewer line. The agreement also ensures that our client is able to continue using his property without the burden of any resulting smell, nuisance, or damage created by the installation of the sewer line.
