Arizona Construction Defects

Failing Infrastructures – Construction Attorney Arizona

Failing Infrastructure – Construction Attorney Phoenix AZ - Arizona Burg SimpsonLast year, more than 26 million U.S. homes were part of homeowner associations. And while they are known for disputes over paint colors and driveway borders, they are responsible for much more than that. In addition to enforcing design standards and collecting dues, homeowner associations are also responsible for the management and upkeep of a community’s common elements and infrastructure.

But when control of these community boards finally transition over to the actual homeowners, the developers frequently fail to provide a final report on the status of the community’s common elements and infrastructure. This can make it nearly impossible for homeowners to get necessary repairs made, especially if they are uncovered much later. That is why it is important to have the common elements inspected before the transition is complete.

If your homeowner’s association has discovered issues with your community’s infrastructure or common elements, contact a Phoenix construction attorney at Burg Simpson today by calling 602-777-7000 or fill out one of our Free Case Evaluation Form as soon as possible.

There are two types of common elements in housing developments, regardless of whether you live in a condo or a subdivision. They include:

General Common Elements
These are areas accessible to everyone and can include:

  • The land where the development sits
  • Parking areas
  • Elevators
  • Central utility areas
  • All elements used for the construction of the building
  • Recreational areas, such as pools, hot tubs, athletic courts, club houses and gyms

Limited Common Elements
These areas are reserved for the use of one unit or more and can include:

  • Balconies or patios
  • Reserved parking spaces
  • Reserved storage areas

This can include:

  • Roads
  • Community signage
  • Curbs, sidewalks, tree lawns

If your community’s infrastructure is already crumbling and the developer is not responding to repair requests, call a Burg Simpson construction litigation attorney in Phoenix right away at 602-777-7000.

Common infrastructure problems that can emerge include:

  • Buckling roadways and collapsing streets
  • Sinkholes
  • Utility line failures
  • Septic system backups
  • Bridge failure
  • Soil erosion
  • Roadway washouts
  • Underground water issues
  • Rock falls and/or landslides

Professional developers can forestall future street issues with careful planning during construction. To prevent roads from washing out, for example, developers can install drainage pans and channels beneath the streets. Insufficient drainage can easily lead to impassable roadways and frequent flooding.

Visit our Phoenix office and talk to a Burg Simpson construction defect attorney immediately if you have experienced any of these issues. Call us at 602-777-7000 for a no-cost, no-obligation case evaluation.
