CHARLESTON — A couple is suing Ideal Homes LLC and Bernard Gross, home builders, citing alleged breach of contract and unjust enrichment.
Richard Harper and Melissa Harper filed a complaint in Kanawha Circuit Court against the defendants alleging that they constructed plaintiffs' home not in compliance with the applicable building codes and without obtaining necessary permits.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that on July 12, 2017, Richard Harper and Melissa Harper contracted defendants for the construction of a modular home for $155,375 in the Town of Elkview. As a result of defendants' breaches, their unfinished home was already infested with dangerous levels of mold. They were damaged for the loss of value of their family home and loss of all amounts paid to defendants. The plaintiffs hold Ideal Homes LLC and Bernard Gross responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to complete plaintiff's home in a safe, workmanlike and timely manner.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek refunds of all the amounts paid to defendant and award for all damages, attorney's fees, costs and such other and further relief. They are represented by Robert P. Lorea of Lorea Law Office PLLC in Charleston.
