Who pays for foundation repair?

Susie Kay answered:
can i legally pack a guests belongings if they wont get out of my home in Tarrant county?
Since you said guests I'm assuming they don't have a signed lease agreement with you.

I would suggest that you talk to an attorney.

Good luck,

Is it possible to get copies of paperwork from Jim Walters Homes built in 1980? What happened to their files of homes built before their closing?
I wouldn't count on it. It's been more than thirty years, and there's really no reason for those files to be kept this long.

We're building a home in the Frisco area (Lone Star Ranch area). We want to include a rolling/sliding electrical gate. None of our neighbors have one.
I love those types of gates you need to inquire HOA and possibly city for approval. I am surprised your builder would not have the answers.
