Knowledgeable Construction Defect Attorney
Our construction lawyers have the construction law experience that you need in your corner to cover a wide range of case types, such as:
- Water leaks that cause mold issues
- Foundation, wall, roof, and other structural defects
- Drainage issues
- Sewage issues
- Settling and sinking
- Poor craftsmanship
- Plumbing or electrical issues
- Failure to disclose defects and other issues
- Cost overruns
Whether the defect is the result of a remodeling job or new construction, a property owner has the right to take legal action if the defect isn’t rectified when brought to the attention of the contractor. However, contractors also have the right to defend themselves against defect claims.
In addition, home buyers have the right to take legal action if a seller has misrepresented the condition of a home. Action can be taken against all parties that have some kind of responsibility for the defect and its intentional non-disclosure.
Regardless of which side of a lawsuit you are on, know that you have the opportunity to be properly represented. We work hard to obtain some kind of relief in the form of defect repairs or a monetary judgment to cover the cost of the repairs.
Just know that there are very strict limits on how much time you have to pursue a construction defect claim. In Arizona, the statute of limitations for construction defects is within eight years of substantial completion of the project, even if the defects weren’t discovered until long after construction was completed. The statute of limitations is extended to nine years if latent defects weren’t discovered until the eighth year after project completion.
