‘Property Brothers’ Sued By Las Vegas Homeowners
The Property Brothers are reportedly being sued by a couple, depending on who you talk to. The Scotts are being accused of completing shoddy work on a home renovation.
The famous Property Brothers of the HGTV Show are being sued for poor workmanship and code violations by a Las Vegas couple, Mindy and Paul King.
“They just come in and they bring a Sharpie or spray paint and try to make things look pretty, but they don’t,” Mindy King told TV station KTNV in an interview.
Doors Not Properly Hung, Dangerous Wires Exposed
King shared that doors in her home were not properly hung and wires were left exposed after they went through the renovation process with the brothers, Jonathan and Drew Scott. The couple paid an estimated $193k to fix their home.
Going into the process, the couple said they were familiar with the Property Brothers and felt confident their home would look beautiful. The couple also shared that they skipped a honeymoon to finance the remodel.
“We’ve both done remodels before, so we thought, ‘oh, this is great,'” King shared. Adding, “We didn’t spend this kind of money to have our cabinets repainted six times and still have paint coming off.”
Since Mindy King’s interview with the radio station, a lawyer for The Property Brothers has clarified that they are not in fact named in the lawsuit. The King’s are looking to soil both brother’s names as their fight is actually with the show’s production company, Cineflix, and Villa Construction.
HGTV Production Company Shares Their Side Of The Story
“The Property Brothers (‘Brothers’) are not named defendants in Paul and Mindy King’s (the ‘Kings’) lawsuit initiated against Cineflix (Property Brothers 7) Inc. and Villa Construction, nor are they responsible for the Kings’ alleged claims.
The Kings have rejected Cineflix (Property Brothers 7) Inc.’s and Villa’s reasonable attempts to remedy the remaining punch list items in the Kings’ home. Instead, in what appears to be an attempt to secure a substantial monetary settlement, the Kings have engaged in a negative publicity campaign against the Brothers. It is unfortunate that the Kings have resorted to such conduct.”
Cineflex, however, has shared that they have attempted to rectify the remaining list of items the King’s want fixed but the couple has refused to accept their help.
It looks as though the courts will now determine what is to come for the Kings, the Property Brothers and the HGTV production company.
