Nashville, TN (PRWEB) October 13, 2008
Jennea Lee announced that a lawsuit was filed by her attorneys in Chancery Court of Davidson County, Tennessee under docket number 07-536-II against Fox Ridge Homes a subsidiary of NVR, Inc. and against the City of Nashville, Tennessee Metropolitan Davidson County Government, in Davidson County Chancery Court Case No. 07-536-II Davidson County Circuit Court Case No. 08C2124.
"Based on the court filing, Jennea Lee alleges that the builder in question has conspired with certain city inspectors and falsified new home inspection reports in and around Nashville." And that the inspector in question was allowed to take early retirement once their activities were discovered. It was also discovered that this now retired building inspector in question lives in a half a million dollars plus home paid for on a city inspector's salary.
Once these facts were uncovered by the investigations leading up to the court filings, they were addressed at a meeting with the Department of Codes & Building Safety Director Terrance Cobb.
A simple question was asked, "Had Ms. Lee's home been physically and properly inspected by the city building inspector(s), should it have been signed off as APPROVED by the building inspector?" Terrance Cobb responded, "No it should not have been signed off on as it appears the home was not built to the CODE."
"According to Jennea Lee, this is criminal malfeasance...", and "Jennea Lee believes that the final court record will show that the city conspired with Fox Ridge & NVR, Inc. in order to cover up this matter that appears to have been going on for years."
The court record will show, these problems not only affect the home that Fox Ridge Built, but as stated in the case it appears they may also affect the other 210 plus homes built by them during the same time period.
Those involved in this matter have tried to be reasonable but the safety of one's family comes first. As part a way to settle this matter, the attorneys for Jennea Lee have asked that Fox Ridge and the city of Nashville buy back the property and home and pay her all of expenses in order to resolve this matter.
"One can only pray that someone in Congress introduces a Homeowners Bill of Rights to protect Homeowners like me," noted Jennea Lee. "As an Asian woman and single mother, I find it shocking that these old fashioned, good ol' boy networks still discriminate because of race, color and/or gender," she added.
