Construction defect Q and A

Homeowners in Colorado expect their houses to be safe and free from defects when they take ownership. When it comes to new construction, this means they expect the builder to have done everything to code and to have used good quality products; and when it comes to existing homes, they expect the former owner to have been honest about the condition of the property. Unfortunately, these things do not always happen, construction defects are found, and those defects can be quite costly. When dealing with a construction defect, one might have a lot of questions that need answering. This week, this column will address just a few of them.

Construction defects Q and A

Building a home is an exciting, albeit expensive, and stressful process. When all is said and done, the hope is to have a house that is safe, well-built and meets one's needs/wants. Unfortunately, every year, numerous Colorado residents find construction issues with their homes that lead them to ask questions about construction defects and litigation. Here are some of the top questions asked about this topic.

D.R. Horton ordered to pay millions in construction defects case

Residents of a condo community in another state have been fighting with their builder, D.R. Horton, for six years to get various things around their complex fixed. Thanks to a recent court ruling, they will be getting what they want. D.R. Horton, one of the largest homebuilders in the country, has been ordered to pay roughly $14 million to repair the various construction defects at this particular location. As this builder also has a presence in the state of Colorado, this ruling may give some hope to those locally who are dealing with similar concerns.

When a home seller fails to disclose a mold issue

Whether you recently bought a house in Colorado or you've been in your new home for some time now, you made the purchase believing the property was in good shape. It is a significant investment, after all, so you should know what you are getting, which is why homeowners are required to disclose certain problems if they exist. Unfortunately, since moving in, you have discovered a mold issue about which the previous owner failed to tell you. What can you do about it?

What electrical issues are often seen in homes?

Buying a home is supposed to be an exciting thing. It does not matter if one is purchasing an existing home or building one from the ground up; the final product should be of good quality and free from defects. Unfortunately, some Colorado residents may find that their new homes are not defect-free. One problem often seen in residential buildings is electrical issues. Here are just a few of the most common.

When water damage can lead to construction defect litigation

Building a home is supposed to be an exciting thing. However, for many Colorado residents, that feeling of excitement can quickly wear off when a problem is found with the property that can cost a fortune to repair, affect the resale value and even affect one's health. Water damage, according to a report released at the end of 2018, is believed to be a big issue, particularly in new builds. When the builder or any subcontractors are believed responsible for it, construction defect litigation may help victims achieve compensation for their resulting losses. 

When construction litigation is necessary to deal with a defect

Buying a home is supposed to be exciting. It is a big move, one that takes some Colorado residents a lot of years to make. When they finally do, they expect the home to be in good repair -- particularly new construction homes. When construction defects are found, it can be maddening. What's worse, it may require construction litigation to get the defects fixed.
