Complaint Against BCB Management (BCB) and Arthur Rutenberg Homes (ARH) to the BBB.

This complaint is for a Willfully Fraudulent Lien (we received a Judgment) and Bad Construction.

My family had a terrible experience with ARH and BCB. We are in litigation.

We signed a contract to build our dream home in May 2014 with Arthur Rutenberg Homes (ARH).

BCB was the local builder.

BCB made multiple false statements regarding their ability to build the house, their relationship with our subdivision and ARH. BCB represented they were part of ARHs. ARHs does not backstop BCB faulty workmanship. Our development removed BCB/Arthur Rutenberg Homes from the approved builders list.

In our contract BCB guaranteed the AR Homes gold standard agreement ARH-BCB did not meet the promised guarantee.

AR Homes is not a licensed home builder in the state of Florida.

ARH/BCB had a difficult time building the house. In September 2015, an ARH worker assaulted my wife, several witnesses were present. ARH nor BCB did not apologize, nor remove the worker or vendor. On October 19, 2015 Brian Baber, BCB President, made a demand for additional dollars outside the contract and threated to file a lien for the full amount of the contract less payments.

On October 21, 2015 BCB/Baber filed his first of two liens for the full amount of the contract less payments to ARH BCB.

ARH/BCB abandoned the house and did not return to the job. Additionally, BCB encouraged other Vendors to file liens.

Because of the Willfully Fraudulent Lien(s) filed by BCB and Bad Workmanship we had additional cost and problems finding a new builder, getting a loan, and seeking insurance coverage.

The house had many problems, and we are currently in litigation for: Fraud Breach of Contract MOLD, two failed MOLD Test Bad Construction Willfully Fraudulent LienFlorida Section 713 Lien Law is designed to protect the Home Builder, however in this case BCB/Baber used Section 713 as Weapon to Extract Additional Dollars for us to continue the Home Build Process. The courts agreed and granted us a Judgment.
