The Denver Nuggets star paid $2.2 million for the exclusive Country Club of the South property in June and quickly moved in with his wife Tawanna and their four children. Two months later the family moved out and Iverson hired Atlanta attorney lawyer Kurt Hilbert to file suit against the builder, seeking more than $6.2 million in damages. WELCOME! Enter your Delivered by FeedBurner HOT LINKS All things Monica Another Family Affair Atlanta Happs Iverson wants to force the builder to refund the purchase price of $2.2 million and to pay the family for relocation expenses, custom-built furnishings and other damages. "When you purchase a high-end home in Atlanta, it is reasonable to expect the highest quality of construction," Hilbert said. "What the Iversons unknowingly purchased was equivalent to buying a Ferrari without an engine." The builder, Order Homes of Atlanta, contends the house is perfectly safe and has offered to fix any problems cited by Iverson. The builder's lawyers say the Iversons and their lawyers will only consider forcing Order Homes to buy back the structure and pay additional millions in damages. Candis Rosier, Iverson's business manager, said the incident has been disturbing to the family. "They went through all the trouble and expense of moving into the home, and shortly thereafter, the floor started sinking and the walls starting cracking, causing them to again incur the expense of moving out and into temporary Atlanta living arrangements. Now the children are the ones who are most hurt. Nothing is worse then Bookmark this page

Iverson claims shortly after moving in, the floor began to sink and the walls started cracking Posted by Sandra at 12:15 AM Labels: Money and Finances, real estate, sports 23 COMMENTS: Bird said... I don't blame him. Don't know body want them fixing their house after you have proven that you are not capable of doing it properly. No one wants to spend 2 million dollars on a fixer upper in Atlanta. OCT 19, :34:00 AM Roxie said... When the bricks separate like that the foundation is unstable. We are looking at home builders in Houston and they told us if anything goes wrong with the homes foundation the builder is obligated under contract to buy the home back. So in reality if this is in their contract the builder will have to buy the home back anyway. I don't know about the moving expenses but that builder deserves to be sued. If I had the means to pay that kind of money for a house it better stand long enough for my great-great-great grandchildren to live in. OCT 19, :35:00 AM APRILL said...

(11) Politics (11) Tameka Tiny Cottle (11) Most of the houses in Country Club of the South are built like that. They used the cheapest materials and threw those houses up. I went to a video shoot at Andre Rison's house and the first thing I noticed the house looked like it was put together with match sticks and balsa wood! The window sills looked like they couldn't support any weight if u sat on them! A few weeks after the video shoot, Left Eye burned the house down. The houses at Country Club of the South look great on the outside but VERY shabby construction on the inside. OCT 19, :53:00 AM brinabelle said... that is such a disgrace!..that house is too new to look like that.. what sane person would allow you to repair a house that has all that damage when it hasn't even weathered A storm yet?..smh OCT 19, :06:00 AM brinabelle said... aprill i agree with you..the last 5 paragraphs are completely unneccessary..his marital problems, his nba stats and his criminal charges have NOTHING to do with the floor to ceiling cracks in the house! OCT 19, :11:00 AM Read the Blog said... Poor Iverson, should have bought a home that's been standing for some time, instead of brand new.sounds like he's just trynna flip his paper. Most newly built homes come with warranties. Iknwo that negro ain't spent no 3.8 mil to move and re-settle, unless he bought another new crib. And I didn't know he had so many kids. WHAT'S WITH THESE PEOPLE AND ALL THESE KIDS!?!? DANG! OCT 19, :31:00 AM

OCT 19, :47:00 PM jpeg said... The Attorney Kurt Hilbert is from Adorno & Yoss. It's the largest certified minority-owned lawfirm in the country...did you hear that the attorney wrote a letter to the editor blasting them for the nasty references at the end of the article...it's nice to see that A.I.'s attorney is sticking up for his rights... OCT 20, :57:00 AM Sandra Rose I wanted to respond to that last night but I was busy. I, too, noticed that last paragraph pertaining to AI's past legal troubles and I, too, wondered what the hell that had to do with the story. Why, for instance, didn't the writer end the article by pointing out all the generous charitable donations AI has made to the community? Remember who runs the AJC and other national media. We need to stop suporting the AJC and other media when they give us their asses to kiss. By the same token, I'm happy that the law firm AI chose is minority owned. OCT 20, :19:00 PM Patricia said...
