Ansbacher on Action News Jax

New complaints about stucco issues involving a Florida homebuilder

By: Ben Becker , Action News Jax

In October 2018, our follow-up revealed a lawsuit filed by some Central Florida homeowners against KB Home saying the company is ignoring the settlement by refusing to do repairs or in some cases not applying enough coats of stucco.

Barry Ansbacher is a real estate attorney in Jacksonville.

“If people lose confidence in buying Florida homes it degrades our brand and hurts everybody,” he said.

As part of the 2016 settlement, homeowners were responsible for submitting a request to KB Home via telephone or email. Telford said because the company wasn’t required to notify homeowners, she was unaware that she could call or email a request.

According to Ansbacher, even though Florida law requires you to file a lawsuit or arbitration claim within four years of finding a defect, there may still be hope for Telford and other buyers.
