13. 'Love It or List It' Homeowners Sue The Show
Deena Murphy and Timothy Sullivan appeared on an episode of Love It or List Itduring which they renovated a rental property in Raleigh, North Carolina. But in the end, they certainly did not love the place. The couple sued in 2016, claiming that the show actually created more problems in the home than solutions.

According to the Miami Herald, “The floor in the home was ‘irreparably damaged,’ they contend, and duct work left holes in the floor ‘through which vermin could enter the house.’ They complain of low-grade industrial carpeting, unpainted surfaces, and windows painted shut.” According to Triad Business Journal, the Sullivans ended up settling privately with Big Coat TV, the producer of the show, and Aaron Fitz Construction, the contractor who did the remodel.
