This just in from Fox 4 in Florida:
CAPE CORAL, Fla. -- A Cape Coral homeowner is demanding answers as to why his house has not been completed after paying more than 90% of the costs.
Robert Pott could not hold back tears while talking about the home he and his wife always dreamed of. They contracted Aranda Homes in Cape Coral to build it, and according to their contract, it should be nearly finished by now. The contract states that the builder has 180 working days to finish the house after construction began, which was in October. At this time, the house is about half way done.
Pott told Fox 4 in May, contractors stopped working because they were not getting paid. According to Pott, the company went out of business and is not honoring his contract anymore, making off with his money, and the money of five others in the same situation. "We who are home owners, I mean there's six of us, not just myself, we've all lost $100,000, $150,000 plus," he said.
