Attorney General Frosh Revokes Registration of Baltimore County Home Builder

Mid Atlantic Modular Charged with Consumer Protection Violations in Harford, Anne Arundel, Baltimore and Cecil Counties;

Division Settles with Nine Other Home Builders for Failing to Register or Disclose Required Information


BALTIMORE, MD (September 26, 2018) – Maryland Attorney General Brian E. Frosh today announced that the Consumer Protection Division’s Home Builder Registration Unit revoked the home builder registration of Mid Atlantic Modular, LLC, of Baltimore County, and filed charges against the company and owners Kyle G. Jackson and Scott D. Chilton, for failing to comply with Maryland’s Home Builder Registration Act, Consumer Protection Act, and the Custom Home Protection Act.


According to the statement of charges, Mid Atlantic Modular, Jackson, and Chilton accepted deposits and payments to begin construction of modular homes in Anne Arundel, Harford, Baltimore, and Cecil counties, and then failed to begin construction or finish construction of the homes, pay subcontractors, or refund the deposits and advance payments made by the consumers when the construction of the homes was not completed.


“When making the biggest investment of their lives, consumers should make sure their home is built by a registered builder and that their deposits are protected by an escrow account, bond or letter of credit,” said Attorney General Frosh. “The Home Builders Registration Act gives my office the tools to prevent builders with a bad track record from continuing to build in Maryland.”
