CarolinaCruzes, Weddington Trace is not on septic systems, so I guess you are talking about another community?

Keith Lutz, you said "lets face it, you honestly believe that your Ryan home is better than a John Wieland home, with awesome amenities, and a 5/20 warranty? PLEASE, time to wake up and smell the coffee!"

Many people in Weddington Trace would answer yes to your question. Though I think Weddington Chase is beautiful (and we did look there when they had a few lots left to build on), we chose a Ryan Home because they had the floorplan we wanted and we thought it was a better value for the money. They are planning to build the amenities in Weddington Trace by the way.

The house being on septic is not the issue. We have had other houses with septic. The issue is the failure to disclose and the failure to repair. How would you feel if you found out after the fact the what the NC Dept of Nat'l and Envirn Resources refers to as a "system of last resort" was installed on your property without your knowledge or input. Unless the state or other gov't entity can pull off a miracle our home may have to be torn down because the septic cannot be fixed. You don't think we had a right to know this?

We are both Weddington residence, is it okay with you the sewage from my Ryan built home is spilling into your public streams?

Either way, I wouldn't wish what we are going through on anyone. I truly hope that you never have any issues. It is easy to rave about a product when everything is going well. The true test is the level of service you get when something goes wrong. I hope you never have to find out and wish you the best of luck.

CarolinaCruzes, I am sorry to hear about the problems you are having. I wasn't trying to discount your problem, and no, I don't like the fact that your waste is going into the water. I hope you are able to get your issues resolved. I just wanted to point out that your issue was not a Weddington Trace issue, since that is the topic of this thread.

I was under the impression that Ryan was the sole builder in Weddington Trace, that is why I posted.
I guess I was mistaken.

They are the sole builder, but there are no septic tanks.

Again, the septic is NOT THE ISSUE. It is the deceptive sales practice, and the failure to disclose material defects. Those issues are character issues not septic issues and are not dependent on location whether my neighborhood or yours.

I would think it would be easy to see the relevance. The same builder that built my brand new $550K home that will potentially have to be torn down due to faulty building built the homes in your neighborhood.

I understand. Hopefully Ryan prevails as a builder and does the right thing.

It is issues like this that these are brought to light with forums like CD and the freedom of speech! I know it is a little late, but hope everyone had a happy fourth!

Good Luck CC!

Question interesting ....

HMMMM, Im wondering which neighborhood you're talking about, I think trace is on county sewer not septics. That's a bad situation, I hope you get it sorted out soon, what are they doing about it??????????

Keith, it took a while for you to respond to these comments = I wonder about your timing. That's interesting but I think you'll find that the new shopping center next to W Chase and the fact that the WT homes are built in the last couple of years might give WT the edge. I like city data but it's tough to see realtors talking on these posts when all they seem to be doing is trying to steer people to the neighborhoods they want folk to buy in. I don't believe there are any homes for sale near the High T's at this point.

Default Ryan

If you check out most builders on city data you will find everyone has a horror story about every builder and there are even some on the wonderful JW - threads!!!!!!! So lets not use this to throw stones at the builders, all builders are business people and I believe they make mistakes and don't always want to admit or pay. The real integrity of the builder is how they actually respond to the mistakes they make. So I will be interested to hear how this one resolves on the septic.
No builder wants a bad rep right now. I don't think you can blame the guy in the sales showroom for this problem, he wouldn't have known. However, it would break my heart to move into a new home and have the situation Carolina Cruize is talking about. I would want a mega new home to replace this with a fantastic lot to give compensation for this problem. Equally, though I have heard stories on every neighborhood in these threads, floods in crawlspaces with mould, shooting ranges, sewers, sex offenders, buckled floorboards. It is very tricky navigating through all this stuff and knowing where to buy - I would be tempted to get an RV and forget the whole thing!!! And I wouldn't be satisfied to take a realtors viewpoint on any of this stuff.
