Home builder sued over stalled Henrico neighborhood
GLEN ALLEN, Va. — A Henrico-based builder is being sued by two homebuyers alleging his company failed to build their Wyndham-area home on time, and that the company has abandoned construction on other homes in the same neighborhood.
Romm Custom Homes is one of two defendants named in a lawsuit filed last month in Henrico Circuit Court by Mandar and Anjali Deshpande. The couple accuses the company and its president, William H. Romm III, of failing to construct their home in the Cameron at Grey Oaks subdivision off Nuckols Road near Wyndham before their purchase was scheduled to close last November.
The lawsuit, filed against William H. Romm III and William H. Romm Inc., doing business as Romm Custom Homes and/or Romm Builders, states the Deshpandes contracted with the company in February 2015 to build and sell a custom home at 5813 Cameron Creek Terrace.
The suit states the couple purchased the property for $621,500 and paid two sets of down payments totaling $62,150, as well as additional payments for three change orders totaling $13,406. The latest change order payment was made last September.
