BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A suburban Philadelphia couple that owns a home in Boca Raton’s “Lotus” development is suing a local design firm, claiming that work is incomplete and materials are being withheld — even though the firm has already been paid more than $100,000. The interior design firm says it’s not true and filed a lien on the homeowners.
The lawsuit, just filed in Palm Beach County Circuit Court, pits Dawn and Martin Jacobson of Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, against D&B Interiors which operates from Clint Moore Road in Boca Raton. In the filing, the Jacobsons admit to entering into a verbal — and not written — contract with D&B, but say D&B defaulted regardless of how the contract was executed. The Jacobsons say they were managing the project from Pennsylvania and trusted the D&B was doing what was expected.
“D&B’s performance was consistently delayed and the work performed at the Project is defective, does not conform to industry standards, and was not performed in a good and workmanlike manner.”
According to the suit, D&B is withholding a $6900 sofa and a Wi-Fi hub.
“To date, the Jacobsons have paid D&B at least $105,562.41 for services provided under the Oral Contract. $6,890.00 of this amount reflects the Jacobsons’ payment to D&B, in full, for a sofa that was never delivered and $300.00 reflects full payment for a Wi-Fi hub that was never delivered.”
D&B Interiors, however, says the claims aren’t true — or at the very least are not accurate. The company filed a more than $25,000 lien on the Lotus property. Read the complete filing, below. The Jacobsons are represented by the Law Firm of Foreman Friedman in Miami.
