I have read some horrific stories re: Toll bros homes. I have been looking at the Villas and Cottages. Is there current mold or construction problems?

It seems there are mold issues and they are not limited to Toll Brothers Homes. I’ve heard a few people who live at Élan at Dublin Station claim that water intrusion and visible mold are prevalent in this building. The problem has largely been kept under wraps by the HOA board and what sounds like negligent property management. Some of the stories are pretty unbelievable: it’s all being kept off record – the HOA meeting minutes have been doctored to show that everything is fine, while the residents are being cautioned to keep quiet by management for fear of losing their homes. Sadly, once the statute of limitations runs out, these people will be left with a mold infested, dilapidated and uninhabitable building with no recourse - wonder what that does to property values.

Thanks Lynn. I am looking for answers from residents, not realtors. thanks! :)
I have google researched but haven't found anything recent. Possilby due to the glut of foreclosures in the area.

Kent, there ARE mold issues on several of these developments, I wanted to know the current status. Also, these prices are not superb, they are still grossly inflated, even though we have never seen this low.
