We have foundation problems inside and out. Electrical problems.

Plumbing problems. Leaks. Had to replace AC unit b/c they put one 1 ton too small for our size home which caused it to overwork and go out. They cut corners and costs every way possible.

So much more, people deserve to know what they are getting into when they buy a house w/ them. Four people on my small culdesac have had major pipes bust underground. Neighbor across from us AC has gone out also and she has electrical problems. I was told by people who came to fix some things that since we are technically not in city li mits they dont have to pass code or inspection like they would if we were in city limitsl.

Just because you can get away with that doesnt mean its right or ethical. I dont reccomment anyone buy a home from them. Sidewalk and driveway sinking. Back door off from house shifting, fixed once and house moved more now gap on top and bottom of door.

You can see toilet upstairs lioks tilted to one side from shift and you can feel it when walking upstairs. There are cracks above doors and window. It just goes on and on. Even the fence throughout our neighborhood is constantly falling b/ c the just through posts in ground w/ no concrete on main posts.

House is a constant money pit and not worth what we are having to put into it.

It should really be bought back because no one will ever want to buy it with the foundation constantly shifting and its not right to be stuck with a defective home. Filed a complaint with BBB and no response as of yet.

Monetary Loss: $139000.

There is always suspicion when a company sells, builds and finances anything; no checks and balances. No renovations or new builds should be done without inspections; LGI is not interested in rural development, but to avoid inspections.

Any other lender would not advance funds for next building step without their own inspection. Buyer be aware, if it sounds too good to be true it probably isn’t.

My friend bought one of these properties for over 200k last month and electrical issues are being noticed. USDA is excellent program that all that’s needed is to find a lender administering the government funds, find an approved area and a reputable builder.

Have any of you contacted media or lawyers please keep in mind the media will only deal with you if you do not have an attorney call NBC shame on you or any other network that has a shame on you department toll has an arbitration clause so unless you can get a class action suit you will have to arbitrate first

I contacted LGI before I read any reviews about them. It was difficult trying to have a sensible conversation with the person (male) who called me.

As a result, I decided to check out the online reviews.

I thank you and everyone else who shared their bad experiences with this company. You have all saved me from making a major mistake.

Same here. I Have an appointment for this Sunday to speak with a Bryce.

I don't think I will be making that appointment after these reviews I don't wanna deal with it.

I called for information and ended up getting roped into an appointment to come in. so if that's how they operate just by that 1 phone call and these reviews sounds a bit shady to me.

All of you guys need to get together and hire a lawyer to sue them!! Your reviews saved me from even meeting with them.

God bless you guys, I pray you all get help with all of your situations. A home is a big investment and should be taken serious by someone selling them.

Maybe we should get together and file a class action law suit against LGI asking them to buy their shoddy houses back.

We have an LGI home with a sinking driveway in Foster Meadows

San Antonio, Texas. LGI has refused to fix it. A/C will not cool the house and the floors are zero grade.

I have some of the same problems. My fence was defective from the beginning and the building supervisor assured me that the problem would be fixed.

Here it is 8 months later and the boards are still missing from the fence. I have water pipes bursting from the main and the A/C was just messed up from the beginning of the purchase.

LGI has deceived me from the beginning and I feel that all should be aware of thier shady practices. Actually since I have moved to Texas I have had this problem and that makes me wonder if it is a state wide problem to screw people at every possible chance.

Same problem with our fence it's been 11 months of us harassing them during our initial walk through my husband showed them our fence all the panels nails were sticking out not even put together the wind blows and they fall down!! We assume that since he told them it looked like a four yr old put it together that's why they've never fixed it!!

Our a/c doesn't blow in 2 of our bedrooms supposedly they are coming next week finally for that. We just had someone fix our back door he had to take the whole door out case and all because it was put in poorly by framers not door people!! Wish we would have looked at these reviews..

There are too many other issues to list. We are in Summer Oaks in Denton TX

NEW HOUSE is not supposed to come with problems of water leaks, plumbing problems, and the air conditioning not suitable for the size of the house? DON'T THINK SO!

And to top it all off, when the structure of a house is not correctly leveled, the walls, floor etc.. crack. So here, something does not sound good.

New house with too many flaws? Find a lawyer, PERIOD!

Did your LGI Home not come with a 10 year foundation warranty? All the issue you state are covered under your Home Warranty...So before you go blasting negative ***....review your Homeowners Manual you received at closing.....it clearly outlines what is covered.

I closed on my LGI home 1 year ago and have no regrets.

Yes, I have had some minor issues as anyone will with a newly constructed home...But they were taken care of.

Dont tell someone not to blast negative ***! I was decieved from the very beginning of the purchase and there has been no real help throughout the process of getting this *** fixed.

The building supervisor that did the final walk through put a sticker on the inside of the cabinet under the sink that had a list of phone numbers. He told me that if I had a warranty issue to call the numbers on the sticker for the problem. I have a plumbing leak and called the number on the sticker. The gentleman that answered just laughed and told me that he has been retired for well over a year.

I bought my house 8 Months ago! So don't tell someone not to blast this company because they are garbage they put out a garbage product.
