Defects from Repair Projects

 Where HOAs And COAs Turn For Help With Repair-Related Construction Defects

Condominium owners associations (COAs) and homeowners associations (HOAs) have important responsibilities. Among other things, they must address repairs and remediation work that can affect the entire community. These necessary projects can give rise to costly disputes when something goes wrong. Multiple parties may be involved, including not only individual owners who may be unhappy with the work but also contractors and suppliers.

You can minimize the risk of disputes and defects by approaching these projects with the guidance of a knowledgeable attorney. Likewise, when potential construction defects arise, experienced legal guidance is critical for avoiding further headaches.

Choosing reputable contractors: Unfortunately, there are far too many unscrupulous and incompetent contractors who won't hesitate to take your money and then fail to deliver. Vetting contractors is a critical step in avoiding the headache of construction defects. Our lawyers can help you choose reputable contractors for your repair, renovation or remediation project. We're very familiar with the Florida construction industry.

Vetting construction contracts: When it comes to major projects, solid construction contracts are the foundation for success. Our lawyers can help ensure that the contracts outline clear expectations, align with your vision and goals, and provide strong legal protections in the event of a dispute or defect.

Preparing meticulous documentation: If a construction defect should arise, thorough documentation – including detailed "before and after" photos, inspection reports and the like – are essential for building a strong case.

Helping you enlist the right inspector: For major projects, having a trusted, independent inspector review the completed work is essential for identifying any defects promptly. We can connect you with a trusted expert who has the right credentials, background, and experience specific to your type of project.
