Class Action Against Excel Homes for Mouldy Heartland Properties

March 20, 2020

Ones’ house is supposed to be a safe space. This is something which is especially important now in these days of home quarantine. Yet for residents of the Cochrane area of Heartland, their homes may not be as safe as they had hoped.
Shane and Kandace Yakemchuk, along with their daughter Deja, moved into their Excel built home in Heartland in April 2017. In December 2018 Deja suffered a severe asthma attack in her room; she was rushed to the hospital where she died nearly a month later.

While Deja had asthma before moving in to the property, she had never had an attack severe enough to need to go to a hospital before moving to Heartland. Yet between April 11, 2018 and December 5, 2018 she had five asthma attacks requiring paramedics to be called.

A mould report indicated their home had a spore count 400 times above acceptable levels.

Guardian Law Group LLP has filed a Class Action lawsuit against Excel Homes on behalf of the Yakemchuks. The lawsuit is open to any current or former homeowners or tenants of Excel-built homes in Heartland who have experienced basement mould and/or moisture issues.
