D R Horton Drilling Reversal

The News and Observer has reported that  the Attorney General’s office says about 400-500 homes sold by D.R. Horton in North Carolina were stripped of their mineral rights (including the legal right to drill and frack for natural gas).  Many of these homes were sold in and around the Research Trianble Park.  Both the Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Division and the North Carolina Real Estate Commission are watching the builder’s offer to return these mineral rights to the consumers who make the request.

It is unclear how long the offer to return mineral rights will be available!  D.R. Horton customers must be made aware of this and they must contact the sales offices in the communities where they bought their homes.  They can also call D.R. Horton’s Morrisville office at 919-460-2999 or the closing attorney Jeff Jones at 919-460-2920.  It is suggested that the request be made in writing.  D. R. Horton will issue a deed of correction for homeowners who make the request. 

If three months go by with no response, call the North Carolina Real Estate Commission and they will help.  Their number is 919-875-3700.

About A Cain

I am originally from New York State and moved to Pennsylvania for college and graduate school. My husband and I later lived in California and West Virginia, and then we were transferred to North Carolina. I learned to ride as an adult, in North Carolina. I have two horses now: one wild-and-wooly teenager who is learning from me, and one former race horse that has turned into a school master for me. They are both pretty sensible and great on trails, so we go everywhere. They live with me on my own North Carolina mini farm. I love to sit on my deck in the evening and watch them graze.
