From NJ, but relevant:
From Eyewitness News:
A dream home became a nightmare in Florham Park, New Jersey.
When the homeowner was handed over the keys he suddenly learned his new home was sinking, cracking, and crumbling.
"I spent all the money I had and I was cleaned out. I have nothing now," said Humayun Akhtar. He thought he was building his wife the home of her dreams, a gleaming palace where they'd live together.
But nearly a decade later, they've never spent a night here.
"Look at this, won't even close," he said at the bathroom door.
Weeks after closing, the cracks started to form, and he soon found he'd sunk his life savings into a house that was sinking into the ground.
