BALTIMORE (Legal Newsline) – Maryland Attorney General Brian E. Frosh announced a lawsuit against Mitchell & Best Homebuilders LLC of Rockville and other entities for allegedly violating the Home Builder Registration Act, the Maryland Express and Implied Warranties Act and the Consumer Protection Act.

The defendants purportedly entered into contracts to construct homes without being registered to do so in the state of Maryland. Additionally, the defendants used contracts that attempted to wave implied warranties and consumers’ rights to consequential damages.

"The law in Maryland is very clear: homebuilders must be registered prior to entering into contracts with consumers and constructing their homes," Frosh said. "My office will seek sanctions against builders who fail to provide consumers with the protections offered by registration with my office."

A hearing will be held on Aug. 9 at the Office of Administrative Hearings. Frosh’s Consumer Protection Division’s Home Builder Registration Unit will aim for injunctive relief, restitution, damages and civil penalties.

Other entities involved in the lawsuit include Mitchell Best Homes LLC, MB Maple Lawn LLC, MB Oak Creek LLC and MB Holly House Meadows LLC and their principals R. Michael Boies, John B. Corgan, Linda M. Ellington, Robert L. Mitchell Jr. and Kristine M. Sullivan.
