Wood rotting from a balcony at Willowbrook townhome that was built by KB Home.
Bradenton, Florida -- Following an investigation by 10 News and state regulators, Florida's Attorney General is getting involved in the KB Home mess at Bradenton's Willowbrook Townhomes.
Pam Bondi's office confirms it has opened an investigation into the crumbling condos at Willowbrook, as well as elsewhere around the state.
Several legislators have previously pleaded with the AG's office to get involved on behalf of homeowners, but because the Department of Business & Professional Regulation was handling the complaints, the Attorney General was hands-off.
However, the 10 News Investigators have now learned Bondi's office has begun interviews and is reviewing documents to see if KB Home broke any laws.
Last week, KB filed suit against 41 original sub-contractors at the Willowbrook complex, pointing a finger at them for the shoddy work.
