In 2011, I signed a contract with Ron from Legend Homes Oakville to build a custom home in 10 months. The build was to start in August 2011 and be completed by May 2012. Six months later (January 2012) the house was still in the framing stage. I discovered that the trades did not want to work because Legend Homes Oakville failed to pay my money to them (approximate $70k).
In February 2012, I asked Legend Homes Oakville for proof of payments as per our contract. They refused and abandoned the project. In addition, I noticed that they were playing with the 10% holdback by releasing it on every invoice (which is wrong!!). Also, starting with excavation, foundation and framing they made lots of mistakes and tried to charge me for them. In conclusion, dealing with them was a nightmare and I advise everybody NOT to use them. If someone is currently doing business with Legend Homes, I hope you have a very good construction lawyer assisting you! By the way, I had to correct all their mistakes and finish the house with other people and it looks outstanding.
