North Carolina couple sues TV show over home renovation

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — A Chatham County couple is suing the producers of a popular home improvement television show, saying the contractors actually revealed more problems after they finished their work.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reports Deena Murphy and Timothy Sullivan contend in their lawsuit that the work done on the HGTV show “Love It or List It” only created additional issues for which they’re seeking compensation.

According to the lawsuit, the floor in the home was “irreparably damaged,” and duct work left holes in the floor “through which vermin could enter the house.”

The hour-long show hinges on whether a homeowner wants to stay in a home which a contractor renovates, or whether they want to move to a new home.

The show’s Canadian-based producers call the couple’s allegations false.
