HUNTINGTON — A Cabell County homeowner is suing a contractor and lenders, alleging unconscionable trade practices.
Barbara Thacker filed a complaint Feb. 15, in Cabell Circuit Court against
Green Building & Supply Co., Viewtech Financial Services Inc. and Spruce Lending Inc.,
alleging they failed to perform work consistent with good and proper building practices.
According to the complaint, on Oct. 28, 2016, she agreed with Green Building to replace her roof and to pay her existing debt to obtain permits and that the payoff would not be greater than $170 per month.
After completion of the work, the suit says, she was obligated to pay $19,490 to be paid monthly for 12 months. However, the lawsuit states, an inspection report from a licensed home inspector revealed that the amount of work performed on her roof bore no reasonable relationship to the amount purportedly charged.
The plaintiff alleges Green Building & Supply allegedly did not disclose the price to be charged for the work and fraudulently obtained her signature on the home improvement contract and WVEERIC document by misrepresentations, deceit and concealment of material facts.
Thacker seeks trial by jury, actual and punitive damages, attorney fees and costs and a declaration from the defendants that she owes nothing. She is represented by attorney J. Williams St. Clair of Legal Aid of West Virginia in Huntington.
