There’s an interesting case going through a court in Michigan right now that seems to be a head scratcher: https://youtu.be/28uuxD985r8
Homeowners who want to do remodel projects are being denied seeing the plans to their homes which are on file with the county. The builder claims they will suffer losses if the county lets people see their own plans apparently because other builders will obtain trade secrets about preventing a squeaky floors and such. Huh?
The attorney in the video mentions speculation that the builder possibly filed different plans with the city to what they actually built and don’t want to be found out. I’ve worked with a lot of builders and this actually sounds plausible. What do you guys think? And as a purchaser of a new home how can people actually 1) know the house was built to plan and 2) make sure they get a copy of the plans at closing?
