How many times and ways does the Texas Residential Construction Commission have to fail to actually get noticed? Apparently quite a bit.
A client in Kyle is construction defects with their KB Home and when the TRCC sent them the name of the inspector, they had no objection. So when the inspector informed them that he would be inspecting their house on a certain date, they sat around waiting at the appointed hour only to find the inspector never showed up. Since this happened on a Friday, they waited until today, a Monday, to contact the TRCC. With that phone call they discovered, for the first time, that KB Homes had objected to the inspector and a new one would be appointed.
So what is the big deal? Well the time for objections is limited and if one is made, it has to be before the inspector is assigned. From the normal homeowner's perspective, if a builder objects, they are simply given a new name from the TRCC. So how did the TRCC fail to let the homeowner know? Easy. Remember, this agency was designed to protect builders, not consumers. So if a consumer had to wait and be inconvenienced, no big deal. We are going to look into whether the TRCC actually gave the builder additional time. Stay tuned.
