James City County Drops Assessments on Chinese Drywall homes to $100

James City County  has agreed to reduce assessments on every home with Chinese Drywall to $100.

James City County supervisors had previously asked staff to look into the possibility of offering residents with corrosive Chinese drywall in their homes a substantial tax break.

Chairman Jim Kennedy said some people in his district had contacted him regarding the defective drywall in their homes. Many cannot afford to tackle the extensive renovations needed to repair their homes, Kennedy said, and probably can’t sell the home, either. Some residents have told Kennedy they can’t live in their homes and are facing bankruptcy and foreclosure.

Cases of Chinese drywall have been reported in numerous James City County homes to date, in neighborhoods that include Stonehouse, Wellington, Braemar Creek, Kensington Woods, and New Town. To date, the county has been contacting builders to rectify the problem if a home is two years old or less; after that, the matter has passed the statute of limitations in the state.
