Our firm, along with Co-Counsel, represents individuals in North Carolina who purchased homes from Beazer U.S.A. using the corporation’s allegedly fraudulent and deceptive home-buying schemes. The action alleges that Beazer improperly induced individuals to purchase its homes by offering them unlawful Down Payment Assistance, which allowed Beazer to directly “gift” the federally mandated 3% down-payment cost to low-income borrowers who could otherwise not afford to buy homes. Unbeknownst to the homebuyers, plaintiffs allege that Beazer was providing no gift at all, and was, in reality, unlawfully increasing the overall price of its homes to offset the cost of the down payment assistance, thereby leaving its purchasers with overpriced homes that are susceptible to foreclosure.
