San Mateo Lawyers Solidify Your Construction Defects Case
Empowering homeowners to assert their legal rights against builders
A defect in an element of the design or construction of your home, business premises or investment property can have a massive effect on long-term property value and hinder your ability to enjoy and benefit from your property. California homeowners enjoy statutory protection from defects in properties built after 2003. The statute sets out very clear obligations for the builder and gives the homeowner rights to sue for certain types of specific defects. However, the law also establishes a rigid deadline for bringing a claim, so homeowners are encouraged to seek legal representation and relief shortly after discovering any construction defects.
Identify defects as early as possible to avoid running out of time
At Sarrail, Castillo & Hall, LLP, we stress the importance of identifying any potential defects as early as possible. The strict limitation timescales run from the completion of construction of the property. Timescales for different defects vary, so it is essential to consult a knowledgeable construction defects lawyer as soon as you suspect you may have a claim. We have years of experience representing individuals, developers and insurers and know how to present a full, fair and equitable claim to all parties involved.
Setting a foundation of fairness that favors appropriate dispute resolution
Many building warranties require the parties to consider mediation or arbitration as an alternative to litigation. Litigation is always available as a last resort in construction defects cases, but a court usually wants to see that the parties have made a reasonable attempt to rectify the dispute by alternative means before resorting to litigation. Sarrail, Castillo & Hall, LLP evaluates each case for the most appropriate course of dispute resolution and stands ready to support the best choice for your situation.
