In North Carolina, homeowners are frustrated over issues with their HOA builder. The builder had promised pools, mailboxes, and lawn service but has yet to make good on it.

 

Escalating Problems at Sherrills Ford

Eight new homeowners in the Magnolia Cove neighborhood are growing distressed over issues with HOA builder Aaron Guess. According to the homeowners, Guess promised a community pool, mailboxes, and lawn service. But, those promises have yet to come to fruition.

Homeowner Veronda Schools says it’s been a long battle. One more problem seems to come after another. Fellow homeowner Sheralanne Citrone feels the same way.

Because there are no mailboxes yet, homeowners have had to go to the post office to get their mail. Making the trip to the post office requires traveling more than 10 miles round trip.

Citrone says the problem goes way beyond the mailboxes and neighborhood pool. Her home, in particular, has a lot of issues. Most of them have to do with her fireplace, her shower door, and her stove.

 

HOA Dues Going Nowhere

Residents have been paying dues to the homeowners association regularly. These dues amount to hundreds or even thousands of dollars but seem to be going nowhere. Homeowners don’t know how the HOA or Guess is using the funds.

The predicament is particularly hard for Citrone and her husband who are 78 and 80 years old, respectively. Schools believes Guess is getting away with the situation, and residents have nowhere else to turn.

 

Not the First Time

This is the second time Magnolia Cove and its builder have made headlines. In October earlier this year, a homebuyer sued Guess over claims that he was trying to get out of a home sale to secure a higher price.

Megan Brusca waited more than a year to close the deal. But, she and her lawyer thought Guess wanted to sell the home for a higher price seeing how hot the market was for sellers. They believe the builder intentionally delayed closing the contract, though Guess denied these claims.
