I wish someone would be more explicit too. We are approaching our one-year, and we need a few things fixed. All emails are bouncing back from PTH, no one answers when we or our neighbors call, etc. I cannot find ANYTHING online indicating they have gone out of business, or what recourse we have. They were always really responsive before--until the past two months or so. They have stopped taking care of unsold homes in our community, to they point that WE are actually mowing the unsold lawns, and deweeding the properties to keep up the appearance. PTH has completely vacated our community (with several homes remaining to be sold). We are going to try a few more avenues to attempt to reach them or find out what has happened. Can anyone help out, or does anyone have ANY additional information??

If Paul Thomas Homes has shut down operations -- and it appears so -- then your warranty is gone too, except if the builder has made other provisions.

Home owners might consider purchasing an AHS warranty.

Hey Ranik, what community are you in? I am at Huntington Ridge and is the same situation here, nobody is taking care of business. But as you said, I have been searching all over the net and I can't find anything about them going out of business. Please let me know if you find out anything.

Hey jemsa--Believe it or not, we're in Huntington Ridge, too! We may be neighbors! We contacted the HOA late last week, and it turns out they have received numerous phone calls about this, but have no answers. As a result, they will be turning over the HOA to our community in the very near future (we should be getting a flyer or letter in the mail for a meeting on this). We saw a real estate agent yesterday at one of the unsold properties, which triggered us to contact our real estate agent, too, to see if she's heard anything--no response yet. We are considering contacting the closing attorney, as we don't know what else to do. I did notice a clause in our contract about Arbitrition if any party in the contract fails to act out their portion (it is the clause directly above the warranty clause). I think there's a contact in there, too.

Incredible Ranik, I am at 100 Milam, I am totally in shock with these news. I was actually going to try to sell the house since I want to move back to Florida but now with all this noise who knows how hard it will be to sell. Keep me updated if you get any info regarding the HOA and stop by anytime you want.

We got a flyer/letter yesterday from the HOA (you probably received one too)--the meeting is on 8/7 at 6:30 at the S. Cobb Regional Library. We also contacted the 2/10 warranty company, and they walked us through a long (but possible) procedure for filing a complaint against the builder for items covered by our 1-year warranty through their insurance provider. There's a form in the back of the 2/10 booklet you can fill out. I'd call them though, too, for details because you have to document that you've attempted numerous times to contact PTH (including via certified mail, when return receipt denied), and include these attempts with your complaint. I think there will be several of us doing this in the next several weeks--spread the word to any of your neighbors still under the 1-year (we've got a few). And yeah! Hopefully we can stop by soon!!

Default News

Hey Ranik, I just found out that there is another realtor trying to move the unsold homes, it is about sales llc, I was looking in Realtor.com trying to have an idea of how much should I ask for my house and there they are, they actually lowered lot 1 to 310. I received the flyer as well, let's just wait for the meeting.

I was told first by a contractor who was doing work on Laurel Landing, and also by two of the sales agents that I was able to track down. I have no idea what it means in terms of warranties, but I do know that Paul Thomas and his partner are "working with the bank" with regards to their unsold homes. I'm sorry I'm not of too much help, but I'll see if I can't find the phone number and name of the person for you to call.

Unhappy Closed...Gone...

Paul Thomas Homes closed their doors about 2 months ago. Fired all employees and locked up. I'm sorry about your troubles.

Default Clearing up the Rumor

Yes, Paul Thomas Homes is closed. You won't find anything on the internet cause they were not a national company only regional. They were considered a major player in Atlanta but they were not a Pulte, Beazer, or Bowen. Being anonymous is important here because many of Paul Thomas Homes employees are still unemployed, and sqaulking about a old boss is not good business. If you want to confirm what I am saying call the plumber or heating or electrical contractor who worked in your house. They will tell you.
