Construction Defect Disputes We Handle
- Apartment-to-Condo Conversions: Faulty workmanship and defective construction are common. Every homeowner and every unit in the entire development may be affected. In addition to defective construction, developer-related issues may include inadequate reserves at turnover, negligent misrepresentation, and fraud.
- Construction defects: Water intrusion, mold, electrical problems and heating and air problems are all signs of faulty workmanship and defective construction. We represent homeowners, commercial property owners and condominium associations in actions against developers, design professionals, suppliers, contractors and subcontractors of all trades.
- Contract disputes: We work to resolve these matters using diplomacy, mediation and arbitration to keep your project moving forward. When necessary, our litigation expertise is applied to obtain the best results in court.
- Mechanic's Liens: One who has worked on a property has 90 days from the last date worked to file and serve a lien to collect money owed. Otherwise, this right is lost. The prevailing party may be entitled to recoup attorney's fees and costs. We represent contractors, subcontractors, material suppliers, and homeowners.
- Miller Act Claims: One who has not been paid for materials and/or labor supplied to a federal government project has remedies under the Miller Act.
- Professional malpractice: For and against architects, engineers, and real estate agents.
- Water intrusion & rot: Moisture penetration in a building structure without dissipation results in rotting wood and damaged materials as well as mold. Incorrect construction may lead to moisture intrusion in wood, vinyl or wood siding, brick, stone, or stucco.
