State Senator Mike Bennett meets with frustrated Willowbrook homeowners | wtsp.com: LAKEWOOD RANCH, Florida -- Dozens of homeowners in a Lakewood Ranch community met with State Senator Mike Bennett Wednesday night to talk about the issues they've had with the construction of their homes.
Residents in the Willowbrook subdivision said they are dealing with shoddy construction and blame the builder, KB Home. According to homeowners, for years they've struggled with mold, gaping holes, and rotted wood. Some have not had any work done. Of those who have had work done, many say the problems still exist. Manatee County has posted "potential hazard" signs on a number of units in the subdivision.
Over the weekend, homeowners mailed letters to KB Home and also to lawmakers. The meeting was a result of that, with Senator Bennett receiving about 20 to 30 letters.
