HGTV’s Love It or List It Sued by Homeowners
The reality show features interior designer Hilary Farr and real estate agent David Visentin as they renovate featured homeowners’ current homes, while also shopping for a new home to potentially buy. At the end of each episode, they choose to “love it or list it.” One couple on the show, however, wasn’t so happy with their home after it was renovated by the HGTV reality show.
Deena Murphy and Timothy Sullivan put down $140,000 for the remodeling of their home, but claim that the show only put $85,786.50 back into it, and spent the rest on production costs. Not only that, but windows were painted shut, while other sections of the home were left not painted at all, and some of the flooring had holes in it. Needless to say, the couple was furious and filed a lawsuit against the show’s producers.
