ORLANDO — Orlando homeowners are suing a construction company, alleging breach of contract.
Cancien Jean and Marie Joseph filed a complaint June 25, in the Orange Circuit Court against Hunter General Contractors LLC, alleging failure to complete construction work on the plaintiff's Orlando home.
According to the complaint, from Aug. 31-Dec. 4, 2017, the Josephs paid Hunter General more $87,000 for construction work on their home at 5231 Renoir Drive, Orlando. The suit says the defendant never completed the project, leaving the home with no running water, no air conditioning, no electricity, an incomplete roof and several broken windows.
The Josephs say they have lost the use of their home, had to pay monthly mortgage, taxes, and insurance cost, monthly rental and utilities costs for temporary housing, county liens and permit fees, and added interest, as a result of the wrongful conduct of the defendant, which refused to complete contracted work. .
The plaintiffs allege Hunter General Contractors abandoned the project and intentionally breached the contract.
The Josephs seek trial by jury damages of more than $15,000, attorney fees, costs, interest, and all further relief the court deems necessary. They are represented by attorney Lewis N. Van Alstyne III of Van Alstyne Law PLLC in Orlando.
