Ronald Sandgrund (Of Counsel), along with Associates Jennifer Seidman, Leslie Tuft and Nelson Boyle of the Burg Simpson Construction Defect Group have co-authored a three-part article in The Colorado Lawyer. The article discusses the many recently enacted construction defect Colorado municipal ordinances, including their “right-of-repair,” “HOA disclosure and consent-to-sue” and arbitration procedures.
Part 1 of the article examines the CD ordinances’ main provisions, including defined terms, arbitration requirements, and claim notice and right of repair processes. Burg Simpson has created a city-by-city chart summarizing the more than 15 ordinances adopted to date.
Part 2 and Part 3 will be published in the February and March volumes of The Colorado Lawyer, the Colorado Bar Association’s monthly magazine. Part 3 examines the serious privacy, free speech and other constitutional concerns these new ordinances may raise.
