An Oh-So Costly Mistake


Mark and Brenda Voss of Missouri (Midwestern United States) recently completed the construction of their luxurious beach house in a gated community in Hammock Dunes Florida only to discover one exceedingly important glitch, the land it was built on belongs to their neighbours.

The $680,000 5-bedroom residence it seems was built on the wrong property.

According to Keystone Homes which built the house, the mistake can be traced to a survey conducted in 2013 that pointed out the wrong stretch of land on which to build the Voss's home. Renters had been living in the house for months before the slip-up was noticed.

So what happens now?

At the time the story broke (October 2014) Keystone Vice President Robbie Richmond said that the company was looking for a way to negotiate a settlement. "We are 100 percent committed to finding a resolution that is fair," he said. "I have built about 600 homes in Flagler County, and this has never happened to me before. It does happen but it's rare."

The Voss’s are reported to have expressed total disbelief. "We may have moved someday but with this headache and grief, we're not so sure. The Midwest is looking pretty good right now", stated Mark Voss.
