Working With Associations and Property Owners to Solve Defect Problems
When a property is sold from one party to another or when it goes from construction into service, it seems almost inevitable that some sort of defect will be found. Florida has a statute for construction defects called Chapter 558, which requires all property owners and associations to inform the contractor of the defect and give the contractor a chance to repair it. However, many of these suits end up in litigation.
The attorneys of Welbaum Guernsey have been practicing construction litigation and construction defect litigation in Miami for over 70 years. We have seen statutes change and understand the construction field. We have represented clients locally, nationally and internationally in the following areas:
- Condominium turnover
- Chapter 558 claims
- Defect notice and claims resolution
- Analyzing turnover reports
- Building construction defects and deficiencies
- Design errors and omissions
- Insurance coverage issues for defects
- Comprehensive general liability insurance (CGL)
- Builder's risk insurance
- Subguard insurance
- Chapter 718.203
- Common law and statutory warranty claims
- Chapter 553.84 civil remedies for building code violations
