WHEELING – Two Triadelphia residents have filed suit against an Ohio construction company over allegations their home has problems with its foundation.
Tina Phillips and Beth Padden filed a complaint in Ohio Circuit Court against Hochstetler & Son Construction alleging a failure to properly construct a home.
The suit states that the plaintiffs and defendant entered into a contract in which the defendant agreed to construct a home for them. The plaintiffs allege the defendant misrepresented the condition of the foundation and suitability of the soil to "defraud" and "obtain money from them" or negligently constructed the foundation.
The plaintiffs allege they have encountered substantial foundation problems and landslides.
The plaintiffs are seeking all reasonable sums due, attorney fees and court costs. They are represented by Mark A. Kepple of Bailey & Wyant PLLC in Wheeling.
The case has been assigned to Judge Jason Cuomo.
