Default All new home builders delays - report here

I thought to start this thread where we can share and discuss closing delays and related issues, especially due to the pandemic. Thank you.

Not my own delay, but our friend's Mattamy home has been delayed by a month.

Urbandale. 7 months and counting. :-( Started before the pandemic but this made things even worse. Communication has been absolutely brutal. I continually have to initiate contact and have to make sure I cover ever single possible element in order to deal with potential excuses. this has been the case since the design portion, which was totally the opposite of the positive sales process.

this experience has been so incredibly difficult and stressful that it is now affecting my health.

I am really sorry to hear about your experience. Please, don't let this get under your skin and affect your health. This type of happening is common, where consumers left to fend for themselves without the proper legal or moral tools.

In what sub-division/development your friend bought his house?

I would suggest it would be more informative to mention the development name where the house is bought. Thanks.

Cardel, Miller's Crossing. Construction on our house was supposed to have started in May with closing being in November. They haven't started yet and understandably due to the pandemic, we were given a notice of unavoidable delay. We don't know when construction will start and haven't been given a new closing date yet. This was all expected of course with the current situation. We're just anxious to have construction begin.
