Condominium Construction Defects

Dealing With Construction Defects In Florida Condominiums
Construction defects are alarmingly common in condominium communities. They can result from new builds as well as conversion projects and repairs. Associations are often left shouldering costly fixes when contractors and designers don't do their jobs.

At Tannenbaum Scro, we apply more than three decades of experience to help condominium owners associations (COAs) hold the right parties accountable.

Common Defects
Construction defects may involve poor workmanship, subpar materials or improper design. These issues frequently come to light during the turnover process, when control is transitioned from the developer to the unit owners. They also arise from repairs, remediation work and even routine maintenance.

Our lawyers help associations deal with problems within all these contexts. We handle claims involving everything from mold and leaks to sloppy repairs and structural issues.

Tailoring An Approach For Your Situation
Our approach in these cases centers on protecting the rights of our clients. In many cases, we can develop creative resolutions that accomplish clients' goals without costing a fortune (and without requiring a drawn-out legal battle in court).

Of course, should arbitration or litigation become necessary, our team is well-equipped to advocate for your interests. We have a wealth of trial experience and a respected reputation in the courtroom.
