WINFIELD — A Tennessee resident is suing Alford Homes Solutions Inc, a home repair contractor, citing alleged negligence, breach of contract, fraud, negligent misrepresentation, tortious interference of contract and unjust enrichment.
Cheryl Pennington filed a complaint in Putnam Circuit Court against Alford Homes Solutions Inc alleging that the home repair contractor was unable to properly repair plaintiff's property and further added structural problems.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that, in May 10, 2017, she hired Alford to provide structural repairs on her property in West Virginia but recently learned that the defendant failed to make the repairs and it had practically destroyed her property. The defendant failed to replace or downgraded several features in her property including but not limited to her kitchen cabinets, subfloor, and linoleum. Due to this, Ms. Pennington cannot list her property and remains unsold and continuous to bear the costs of maintaining her property. The plaintiff holds Alford Homes Solutions Inc responsible because the defendant allegedly represented that they possessed the experience and expertise to make the repairs but never made to do so and instead it made the property worse.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensatory damages, pre- and post-judgment per annum, attorneys' fees and costs, punitive damages and other relief the court may find appropriate. She is represented by Kenneth E. Webb Jr., Patrick C. Timony and Unaiza Riaz of Bowles Rice LLP in Charleston.
