What to Do After Discovering a Construction Defect
You buy a home or finish a remodel only to discover that something is wrong: the roof leaks, the foundation is sinking, the plumbing or electrical is out of order or there is some other defect. Panic sets in. You have already spent a lot of money, and now you have to spend more to address the issue and prevent possible further damage to your home.
You have the right to expect that construction is done right the first time or that existing defects will be disclosed when you purchase a piece of real estate. When that is not the case, you may be able to remedy the situation with the help of an experienced lawyer.
