Soil dispute: builder to resell San Antonio homes
SAN ANTONIO (AP) - A San Antonio neighborhood where sliding soil
has kept more than two dozen families out of their houses most of
this year could get new residents.
Homes in the Rivermist neighborhoods that builder Centex Homes
has offered to repurchase are expected to be repaired and resold.
Centex has offered to buy the homes of 27 residents who live
close to a collapsed retaining wall, in an unsteady soil problem
that surfaced in late January.
The San Antonio Express-News reports the company says about
two-thirds of the homeowners have agreed to the deal.
Centex spokeswoman Valerie Dolenga says the homes will likely be
offered for sale again after the retaining wall is rebuilt.
The 27 evacuated homeowners have had their certificates of
occupancy revoked by the city, amid safety concerns.
