New Homeowner Sailor Obtains Favorable Judgment After Warranty Violation Left Home Uninhabitable

December 2, 2020

A Navy servicemember purchased a home that included a one-year warranty. Upon moving in, he discovered that the home had major plumbing and structural problems, which required the military family to temporarily stay at a hotel. The warranty required the sailor to notify the contractor for consideration of any repairs. The sailor notified the contractor of the needed repairs multiple times, but there were not made. He visited his local legal assistance office for help. His legal assistance attorney referred his case to the Military Pro Bono Project, and his case was placed with an experienced attorney.

The sailor’s attorney represented him pro bono in litigation against the homeowner. The sailor obtained a favorable judgment, allowing the family to collect the money to make the needed repairs and return to their home.
