    Default Dispute with Home Builder

    My question involves a consumer law issue in the State of: Texas

    We had a home builder built a new house including a stock pond on the land we own. We paid $15,000 upfront for the pond. After we moved in last February we found the pond cannot retain water. The builder said they had to wait until all the water was gone to bring in special soil to fix the problem. Now the pond is completely dry and we urged the builder to come to do the work before rain comes again. But the builder now asked us to pay extra $6,500 for them to “bring in the dirt and compact”. We disagreed. We don’t know what to do next. Please advise.

    Do you have a contract for the construction of the pond? What does it say?

    You may have to sue the builder for specific performance if the contract says they will build you the pond. After all, a pond must hold water.
