Water floods into the garage, creating a slip hazard because of water accumulation. The water is also causing structural damage to the walls and floor of a Lennar new construction home. Although Lennar’ Rick Hudak and Mark Metheny acknowledged the issues, the repairs were never done.
Each time it rains, water comes in under the garage door and accumulates on the garage floor. Because of the type of flooring installed, it’s difficult to detect until you’ve hit it and fallen. I’ve fallen on several occasions because of this.
Here is a video of the water coming into the garage and accumulating on the floor:
Here is the history on this issue that’s gone on for several years.
Here’s the summary from all of the construction issues I keep in a spreadsheet.

Garage flooding description
There is water coming in under the garage door when it rains. The water accumulating on the floor of the garage makes it extremely dangerous. Mr. Fannin has slipped two times now.
Original response to the garage flooding issue by Joel Fedora
None – this issue was discovered after the Lennar construction issues began being handled by their inside legal counsel.
Lennar in-house legal response for garage flooding issue
D&D to adjust garage doors.
Amanda Buffinton legal response to Lennar about garage flooding issue
Resolved. Mr. Fannin accepts this response; however, he reserves his rights.
Buffinton response to Lennar outside legal (prior to filing the 558)
Same as above.
Final WCI outside legal response to 558 complaint
WCI offered to resolve this item but the Homeowner canceled the repair.
Note: This is not true at all. See: WCI (Now Lennar Homes) Lied in Their Legal Response. Why?
Lennar executive’s response on 5/22/2017
Although on the list and inspected, it was not addressed by the inspection Lennar home inspection report. Because of confusion, it was one of the items Mark Metheny suggested be included in another inspection (along with an environmental company initial visual inspection) conducted by Rick Hudak.
That inspection never occurred. This was the last time I heard about this and next steps.
Note: As of the date of this publication, all the Lennar executives went silent and none of the construction repairs were ever made, including the promised replacements of two, improperly installed and defective A/C units causing extensive mold exposure and health issues.
