The U.S. attorney general has requested documents "generally relating" to builder Beazer Homes' mortgage business, the company said. "At this time, there have been no allegations of wrongdoing," Beazer said. "We are fully cooperating with this request and the U.S. attorney's office," the company added. Beazer said it believes the request "was fueled" by information published in the Charlotte Observer and BusinessWeek indicating that there is a federal investigation of the company in connection with alleged mortgage fraud. However, the company said that, based on its internal investigations to date, it has found "no evidence to support the allegations in these articles."
