Burg Simpson construction defect trial and appellate lawyers Ronald Sandgrund and Leslie Tuft have co-authored a recent article for The Colorado Lawyer entitled “The Scope of CDARA: Time and Place Limitations.” A link to the article is attached here.

The Colorado Bar Journal (The Colorado Lawyer) just published an article in March 2021 by Burg Simpson attorneys Ron Sandgrund and Leslie Tuft concerning the scope of Colorado’s Construction Defect Action Reform Act (CDARA). This law, CDARA, governs nearly all Colorado construction defect claims and lawsuits. The article explores possible limits on CDARA’s reach – limits that can prevent homeowners from being saddled with unfair restrictions on their legal rights. One area the article explores is whether limits on a homeowner’s or homeowner association’s right to obtain adequate compensation may properly be applied if the damage to their property results from a defect on someone else’s property, such as a fire, flood, or explosion emanating from the other property. The article also examines whether CDARA’s cumbersome notice of claim process – which can last for two months or more, and which may require construction to be halted in the meantime – applies to construction defect claims arising during the course of construction, long before the structure or home is completed.
