Homeowners Associations with Defective Construction Materials Claims Lawyers
When multi-unit buildings are first constructed, the builder or developer is typically in control of the homeowners association and may remain in control for several years. When most or all of the units are completed, residents will usually take over ownership of the association. It is not uncommon for residents to discover construction defects that have not been repaired by the builder upon assuming ownership of the association, as many builders seek to limit building and repair costs to maximize profits and move on to another project. At the law firm of Martinez & Schill LLP, we help homeowners associations get construction defects fixed. Our San Diego construction defect attorneys hold builders and contractors accountable for defects in their work.
Representing Homeowners Associations in Construction Defect Litigation in California
Serious construction problems with condominiums and townhouses can be costly to repair, quickly draining the coffers of a homeowners association’s reserve fund. if reserve funds are not available or sufficient, residents may be required to pay additional monthly dues or a special assessment. When the defects are the result of poor workmanship, defective naterials, defective design, or structural defects the builder, contractor, or developer should be liable for the repairs.
