Here we are 6 years later and everyone is still in the same boat in concerns of buying a Dominion Home. Now my issue isn't with my home itself,because that part is all good. It's the HOA that sucks. More money every year and for what? They don't do anything but go around beating up on HomeOwners such as on May 31,2009. They get in the HOA and then think everyone should bow down and kiss their a$$es. If you don't kiss their a$$ then they harass you and one HomeOwner was even attacked recently by the Board members.

What is this about a class action law suit? This is the first I've heard of it and I live in the Village of Wildwood Sub division.
We change HOH all the time and they do things to us and don't even send out notices. For the last ten months I been paying 135.00 a month for HOA dues. Now that we're supposedly caught up, I'm having to jump through hoops to get them to change information so I don't go through the same thing again.

Dominion has short changed a lot of people and if there is a suit going on, I'd love to be apart of it.

I am looking at a town home in the Village at Hilliard Run! You guys scare me. Does anyone live in this community and can provide insight?

I live in this community, first question is why are you looking to buy a townhouse instead of a free standing? Feel free to email me at [email protected] for any feedback!

I disagree that Dominion puts in better HVAC etc... We have been in out house just over 4 years and while we love it, it is falling apart. We have to shell out $2500 for a new air conditioner because the one we have broke and it was installed a year and a half before we moved in so our warranty expired 4/2010. We also have cracks in our walls, that's right, cracks going up from the baseboard all the way up the wall. When we bought our house Dominion's motto was still "The best of everything!" What a crock!

i feel so bad for everyone on here. we've had issues from the start with dominion. should have been our first warning not to sign. we were lied to for months about a refrigerator being included and weren't told until about 2 weeks prior to closing that it was in fact NOT included. then there was the amount we would need at closing. it changed 3 times. first we would pay over $1000., then we were getting back about $800. so we were relieved because we didn't know where we were getting the $$ for the fridge. then about 3 days before signing, we had to come up with close to $400. we came from an apartment. we didn't sell a house so coming up w/$$ like that was stressful. plus we still had to get the fridge.
Yikes, if scraping together $400 to close on your house is all it takes to push your family's finances to the brink, you honestly have no business building a house.

I know that it may be hard to hear, but if you can only muster up $1,000 for a down payment I would be concerned if you can handles the countless monthly costs of maintaining a home. It seems the majority of people that lost their homes were in very similar situations.

Dominion doesn’t care about you or me, just their money. Problems began soon after signing a purchase and sale agreement, which Dominion only gives you 48 hrs. to sign once you select a building lot. We were told we would be meeting with the interior design person in 7-14 days to select cabinets; carpeting etc. and it would take 4-6 months to complete the home. Actually it took almost a month to meet with the designer. It ended up taking the full 6 months to get our home. Apparently they only 1 have one person in KY in this role and she was on vacation. In the mean time nothing is being done on the home, since all of the selections can’t be made yet.

Dominion has this page on their website where one is supposed to be able to monitor the progress of the construction. The problem was they never up date promptly. Most of the time the actual construction was ahead of where the website showed the construction to be. The only real way to know what was being done was to go look ourselves.

Trying to close was another nightmare.

We finally closed in 6/13. At the time of the pre-closing walk through a couple of issues were noted. Dominion’s site superintendent said he would have them taken care. After we moved in we found a couple of other issues and Dominion’s site personnel said these issues would be taken care with the ones we previously noted. It is now 10/13 and Dominion has not resolved one of these issues. I have sent several e-mails to Dominion Customer Care and still nothing has been done. Dominion has only bothered to respond to 1 e-mail, I guess they think if they ignore me I will go away. Today I filed a complaint with the BBB, we’ll see if that does any good. Not really holding my breath since the only other time I used the BBB they did nothing. It’s beginning to look like I’ll go to an attorney to get Dominion to fix the issues they should have fixed a long time ago.

DON’T close on / move into a Dominion Home until all known issues have been resolved.

The whole experience with Dominion has been one night mare after another. Do yourself a favor and look elsewhere for your new home.
