Common Construction Defects In Single-Family Housing

As with all types of housing, single-family homes are vulnerable to construction defects from a variety of factors. Unlike a condominium, a single-family detached home is the maintenance responsibility of the owner.  Although there may be common areas in the community, the vertical structure is the separate interest of the homeowner.

The rights and responsibility of the owner for both maintenance and the ability to bring a claim are outlined in the Purchase and Sale Agreement.  Most all contracts contain a complicated dispute resolution process that, if not followed, will result in the abandonment of your claim. Thus it is imperative that this document is reviewed by legal counsel.

Normally, most construction defects repeat themselves throughout the community as the same subcontractors, and material suppliers were utilized by the developer. Therefore, we survey the neighborhood to determine if any neighbors are suffering from the same problems. If so, we can possibly be joining them in one action which will garner the attention of the developer and reduce costs.
