What is Construction Defect Law?

Construction defect law addresses legal issues related to defects in the design, construction, or workmanship of buildings and other structures. It ensures that property owners, contractors, and developers adhere to quality standards and regulations. This area of law protects the rights of property owners and helps them seek compensation for damages caused by construction defects.

When Can I Use a Construction Defect Law Attorney?

A construction defect law attorney can be invaluable in various situations, including:

  • Identifying Defects: When you suspect a defect in your property’s construction, an attorney can help identify and document the issues.  For example, a homeowner in Tampa hires an attorney from Muller Law to inspect cracks in the foundation of a newly built home, suspecting poor construction.

  • Negotiating Repairs: Attorneys can negotiate with builders and contractors to ensure defects are promptly and properly repaired.  A Tampa business owner contacts Muller Law to negotiate with a contractor for roof repairs on a commercial building after discovering leaks.

  • Filing Claims: If negotiations fail, an attorney can help file a claim to seek compensation for the defects and related damages.   A condo association in Tampa hires Muller Law to file a lawsuit against a developer for widespread plumbing issues affecting multiple units.
