With decades of experience, Burg Simpson knows construction defects law. We have worked with individual homeowners, condominium associations and homeowner associations to explore their cases and fight for their legal rights. If you need guidance or have questions about potential defects, we are here to help!

WE REPRESENT COMMUNITY ASSOCIATIONS

While a new residential development is being built – and for months or even years after they are completed – developers run the new community association. One of the developer’s priorities, while they are in charge, may be to keep repair costs to a minimum. All too often, when the residents ultimately assume control of their condominium or homeowners association from the developer, they discover a laundry list of repairs that need to be made, along with the associated costs.

We have experience working with community associations to help them hire trained construction professionals to examine the problems and effect the necessary repairs. Our team in Florida also works with our clients in an attempt to negotiate settlements with builders and developers when issues arise. These negotiations are almost always a better, more cost-effective way of resolving construction defect issues. Unfortunately, that does not always work. And when it doesn’t, we will not hesitate to pursue a case all the way to a courtroom.

SINGLE FAMILY HOMES

One of the most significant investments most people will ever make is purchasing their home. At Burg Simpson, we believe you should get what you pay for.

Most people do not realize that you do not have to be the original buyer of your home to pursue recourse against the builder or developer if construction defects appear. You could also have a claim against anyone else involved in the construction of your home, from the design professionals to the sub-contractors to the material suppliers.

We care about more than just a check. We will work hard to get construction defects repaired permanently so you do not end up in the same place two years from now. We help homeowners identify qualified professionals to evaluate the problems, assess repair alternatives and realistically estimate costs. Because these cases can take time, we also help homeowners deal with emergency repairs until we reach some kind of resolution.

Litigation can be costly and time-consuming. In these cases, we strive to negotiate an amicable resolution with the responsible parties, before it makes it to a courtroom. However, that is not always possible. We are willing and able to pursue a lawsuit to its conclusion, including appeals and the resolution of any lingering insurance coverage issues.

WHAT ARE CONSTRUCTION DEFECTS?

Most of the time, construction defects – whether they are residential or commercial – are a result of poor workmanship, careless construction, defective materials, improper site selection or preparation and more. Burg Simpson’s Florida office specializes in construction defects mediation and litigation.

Construction defects typically show up in one of two ways:

Patent defects: These are flaws that are obvious or visible.
Latent defects: These flaws are not noticeable, are not visible, or do not appear until much later.

Construction defects range from costly structural issues such as a cracked foundation to relatively simple concerns such as poorly installed kitchen cabinetry. The construction defect attorneys at Burg Simpson fight for homeowners and community associations across the country. If you need an experienced construction litigation attorney, call us now at 941-777-6776 or fill out our Free Case Evaluation form as soon as possible.

IS THERE A TIME LIMIT WITH CONSTRUCTION DEFECT CASES?

Yes, there are statutorily imposed time limits on when a case must be filed. These deadlines, known as the statute of limitation and the statute of repose are dependent on many factors.  If you think you may have defects, have identified structural issues in your home or prematurely decaying infrastructure in your community, get in touch with us so we can help you before time runs out. Call us today at 941-777-6776 or fill out our Free Case Evaluation form now.
