PulteGroup accused of hiding shoddy homebuilding from buyers
December 31, 2018 / Ben Lane
PulteGroup and its subsidiary, Pulte Home Company, allegedly built homes in the state of Florida that were not to code and hid that information from homebuyers, according to the office of Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi. Bondi’s office announced last week that it reached a settlement with the Pulte companies after a two-year investigation found that Pulte allegedly failed to disclose to certain Florida buyers that some of its homes were being built in violation of applicable building codes. Bondi’s office filed a complaint against Pulte that accused the homebuilder of violating the Florida Unfair and Deceptive Trade Practices Act.
