WINFIELD – A Putnam County couple claims that their home was improperly constructed.
Robert and Elizabeth Sturm filed a complaint in Putnam Circuit Court against Hobba Enterprises LLC, G. David Hobba, DHB LLC and unnamed subcontractors.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs entered into a contractual agreement with the defendant for construction of a custom home in Hurricane in September 2016.
Hobba allegedly informed the plaintiffs that the defendants were fully insured for the construction of the home. The suit states the defendants also agreed to complete the construction of the home in 270 days, but failed to do so.
The defendants allegedly also failed to provide the plaintiffs with copies of all proposals, quotes or invoices and failed to comply with regulations when installing a septic system, causing the plaintiffs' basement to be flooded with raw sewage on July 25, 2018.
The plaintiffs allege the defendants also failed to install the proper media cables in their home.
The defendants are accused of negligence, breach of duty of care, fraud, breach of warranty and breach of contract.
The plaintiffs are seeking all reasonable sums due, attorney fees and court costs. They are represented by Matthew L. Ward and Ellen M. Jones of Dinsmore & Shohl LLP in Huntington.
The case has been assigned to Judge Phillip M. Stowers.
