I knew this was bound to happen!
HGTV’s “Property Brothers” has been sued over a botched home renovation. Las Vegas homeowners Paul and Mindy King tell “KTNV” that they feel “bamboozled and tricked” after paying nearly $200K upfront for a home renovation that caused more problems than it fixed.
In the popular show, brothers Jonathan and Drew Scott work with local contractors to churn out dream homes, and the Kings shelled out all that cash thinking everything would be under code and topped off with the Scotts’ complementary expertise. What they actually got? Broken building codes, janky appliances, and paint jobs, exposed wires, and an altogether unfinished job.
LAWSUIT: A Las Vegas family is suing the production company behind a season of the hit show "Property Brothers." The company, "Cineflix," has filed to have the case dismissed #8NN https://t.co/uERzbvWU4z— 8 News NOW (@8NewsNow) March 9, 2021
In court docs, the Kings say they were pressured into signing contracts and deceived, the work wasn’t done by experts like they were promised. The Scotts aren’t named in the lawsuit, so their lawyer says they’re “not responsible,” calling the Kings’ claims a “negative publicity campaign against the brothers.”
Their not the only ones who were in trouble. Ty Pennington and the show “Extreme Home Makeover” had a few families complain about faulty work and late mortgage payments.
