The servicers also get $1,000 for each completion under the government’s year- old mortgage modification program, and additional stipends over three years if borrowers stay current on their payments.

Those “carrots” won’t be…

Feds Say Gut Those Homes with Chinese Drywall - Was it used in Las Vegas Homes?

Saturday, April 3rd, 2010 at 7:03pm. 1455 Views, 0 Comments.

Chinese Drywall debate is about to heat up

I've also heard of a particular Las Vegas Condominium development plagued with construction defect litigation that also used Chinese Drywall but I've been unable to verify the accuracy so far. Regardless.. I'm pretty certain that the Chinese Drywall issue is going to be the next big concern after this latest guideline was just released from the Consumer Product Safety Commission:

Homes with Chinese Drywall must be Gutted
