Builder told to pay $290K

Home at Last LLC, an Upper Marlboro-based home builder, has been ordered by the state’s Consumer Protection Division to pay $290,000 in restitution and penalties for failing to build homes paid for by consumers.

The company and its principal, Jacquelyn Willis, also failed to place or maintain money paid by consumers into an escrow account, or have a surety bond to cover customers’ deposits and payments, according to the Maryland attorney general’s office.

Regulators also suspended the registration of another builder, GM Homes LLC, of Forest Hill, for failing to enroll homes in a new home warranty plan as promised, and failing to make repairs to homes.
