Ryan Homes in Buffalo, New York - Margaret Cox

I live at 6197 Versailles Road, Lakeview, NY, in the Woods at Versailles. There are three homes above my house which are located on a noll. The water from these homes are running into my yard, causing standing water in my yard. It has become so bad, my yard has formed a rut in the yard. You have placed a large drain, but you have it in the wrong place. You need to have someone come to the location and check out this situation. I have been very patient for nearly nine years and my patience is running out. I do not want to seek legal action. I just want you to fix the problem. The three homes are located on Shadow Lane. Thank you. Margaret E. Cox

You are going after the wrong company. Ryan buys lots from land developers.

You need to find out who the land developer was as they are they ones who design water runoff, not Ryan.

Ryan just buys the lots and builds the houses. They have nothing to do with how water channels throughout the development.

I'm having similar issues with a new Ryan home in Maryland. What did the private AC company you hired say the problem was??

My house was finished in December but we didn't settle until the spring, when it was finally warm enough to test the AC it came on no problem and seemed like cold air.

Now that its May and we are hitting 80-90 degree humid weather, it seems like the compressor unit outside is always running (and is very loud/vibrates a ton), but the temp isn't dropping all the way, it even goes up sometimes!. We just got a $300 bill for a half month of AC usage.

We had the AC sub come out to fix a noise issue with the 1st floor return and he added a small return in our unfinished basement - this fixed the noise but made the cooling problem even worse. We are desperate to get this fixed before the super hot summer months!

Ryan homes poor electrical work

While getting one of our double ovens fixed the GE repairmen found an electrical box behind our appliance with exposed wires and no cover installed. There is evidence of electrical sparking. Our home could have burned down and worse a possible loss of life. We have been trying to get Ryan rep for two days without any response. Never buy a Ryan home!!! This is in addition to fixing nail pops for the entire 9 years we have been in the home, very shoddy sheet rock installation, and subflooring in multiple rooms that had to be repaired. Very little carpentry work is plumb or level and just about every door had to be reworked. Never buy a Ryan home!!!

The leak in my bay window has been 'fixed' and no further leaking into my dining room has occured,thankfully.

Now I have a leak in my basement at the interface of the concrete foundation and wood frame. I located a gap where the frame and garage come together - easy fix with perimeter spray foam. However I have a continuing leak that appears to originate at the front door. The front door and frame has been inspected thoroughly and we can not find where, when it rains, water is making it way into my basement (path of least resistance). Ryan claims it is 'MY fault' due to improper maintanance ?! My response is poor workmanship by the fly by night contractors Ryan uses to build my home.

There is no resolution and I need to have a structural engineer inspect the framing to determine possible resolution at my cost. :(

We purchased a Ryan Home about 5-6 years ago for almost around $500,000. This home started having problems about 2 years later, of course after the warranty had expired. It has a leak in the basement and one of the large windows in the basement is leaking. This...

I purchased a Ryan home in Bowie MD and I am here to tell you that it's *** down here also. I also call them and they say "your out of the 1 year, this is who you need to call".

They ONLY want to take your money and that's it. If they were ANY type of company, they would give you a 3 year warranty on ALL products. They know d**M well that after 1 year the house is still settling and you will see nail pops and such.. Why come out after a year when you MIGHT not see anything?

I have steps that feels like people will fall through them, nail pops all through my house, a crack in the ceiling that they fixed that has come back (they still won't fix that even though they supposedly did)...

HORRIBLE company, Management, service people, etc... If I wasn't concerned with my credit I would let this *** default.

NVR won't keep your mortgage. You only have to deal with their idiocy at the outset.

They aren't mortgage HOLDERS, they are just the company that holds it at the beginning. Mine was sold to Countrywide (sigh) within three months.

Might be best not to say they rip off all buyers, because most buyers will say that isn't true, and Ryan Homes will use that contention to summarily dismiss the entire complaint as untrue. Did they lie to you? I have no doubt they did, as I've heard and witnessed it many times. It’s not really illegal for them to lie to you in most cases.

Things are spelled out in the contract, that is true. If all people really did read and understand them, they'd know they're mostly signing a waiver that allows Ryan homes and NVR to do pretty much whatever they want, and the buyer has most of the real obligations. These contracts aren't so much buyer agreements, they're decrees placed upon the buyer. Take one to a real estate attorney, if you have any doubts about this. People will still sign them because Ryan Homes is big, so they must be safe? That thinking ruined us, into being stuck with Ryan Homes nightmare.

So that’s why you got no apology and the comment "they could do whatever they want." Once you've signed you may get the feeling you're a valued customer or just a pawn in their profit scheme, as in your case. In either experience, both are still accurate descriptions of most any Ryan Homes buyer. Sure they want you happy, but their bottom lines require a whole lot of margin in some not so good to cut areas, and woe to the buyer who get’s in their way of that for any reason, as you are trying.

The buyer’s ignorance is Ryan Homes best friend. They can and will make you feel fully informed, but just to their specifications and benefit. This is why they don't build bad homes, (their belief) they just have a few bad buyers. This is from an almost entirely Ryan Homes trained staff that comes from soulless corporate manager types who demand employees sell it fast, build it fast, and ‘we don't care how you do it’ mentality. Their bottom feeder employees can go find a paycheck somewhere else if they don't fit the mold.

So it’s not fair to say they ripoff everyone just because you were lied to. If they can sell fresh ground road kill, and the customer is convinced it’s fresh ground grade A Angus beef, whose to say they're ripped off? Of course if people complain too much about the bad parts, as you may be doing here, you could get your deposit back. Some do it this way. Some got half. Some walked with nothing and are just thankful Ryan Homes is out of their life. As all those others, be thankful you're mostly out of the Ryan Homes scheme, as it could be much worse, but still hang in there on getting the deposit back. The rule of thumb on this is in practice, there isn't one.
