ORLANDO — A Rhode Island woman who owns property in Orange County is suing a property developer corporation, alleging negligence and design defect.
Mayra Heredia filed a complaint Sept. 19 in the Ninth Judicial Circuit Court of Florida Orange County against Pulte Home Company, LLC, alleging violation of the Florida Building Code.
According to the complaint, on Sept. 21, 2007, Heredia purchased from Pulte Home a property at 13244 Jervey St., Windermere. Heredia alleges she suffered damages caused by the defects and deficiencies in the construction of the property. She also says the defects were not readily apparent and she became aware of the defects only upon inspection.
As a result, Heredia says she suffered loss of property value and out-of-pocket expenses for significant repairs and renovation to correct the defects and violations that included cracked stucco, excessive moisture and the lifting of window sills.
The plaintiff alleges Pulte Home failed to reasonably and adequately construct a property in accordance with the Florida Building Code and the violations were latent and not readily discoverable by property buyers.
Heredia seeks trial by jury, damages, interest, attorney fees, and court costs, plus all other relief as the court deems just and proper. She is represented by attorneys Jennifer A. York and Neil A. Saydah of Saydah Law Firm in Oviedo.
