 Jury gives Odenton condo owners $5.6 million for builder’s shoddy work

“A jury on Monday evening said that a national homebuilder owes $5.6 million to an Anne Arundel County condo association because their condominium complex was poorly constructed, according to the association’s attorney. Following a five week trial and testimony from more than two dozen residents of the Eden Brook Condominiums in Odenton, a jury determined that Virginia-based NVR Inc., which does business as Ryan Homes, NVHomes and Fox Ridge Homes, should pay homeowners for defective construction and misrepresentations about the quality of the complex’s construction, said attorney T. Allen Mott, of the Baltimore law firm Cowie & Mott. Eden Brook is an eight-building, 224-unit complex for people 55 and older.

‘The community as a whole was led to believe that the condominium was a quality constructed, ‘maintenance-free’ residential development constructed and ‘backed’ by NVR,’ according to the association’s lawsuit. The association alleged that the condo complex was built with inferior materials and below minimum industry standards. Problems with the units included leaking windows and defective temperature-control units, Mott said. NVR is a publicly traded company with homebuilding operations in sixteen states and a mortgage banking operation. The company’s counsel … declined through a representative to comment on the case. An NVR corporate spokesman did not respond to a request for comment Tuesday.”

T. Allen Mott of the law firm Cowie & Mott, P.A. served as lead attorney at trial for the condominium association in the construction defect case discussed above. The construction defect and misrepresentation trail was held in the Circuit Court for Anne Arundel County in Annapolis, Maryland.
