What is Negligent Home Construction?

Contractor looking at a home construction build and comparing to planYou depend on construction professionals to do a good job. Certainly you don't expect them to damage your home and leave it in worse condition than they found it. Unfortunately, some homeowners are victims of careless home design and repairs.

Here are several common examples:

  • Faulty, inadequate or ineffective repairs completed by a contractor
  • Contractor or builders introduce defects into the construction of the home
  • Home designers and builders create a deficient or faulty design

Similar to cases involving property damage, our firm has witnessed first-hand how devastating these scenarios can be. Your home is a significant investment, and you deserve the quality of construction you paid for and that was agreed to.

Fraudulent or Negligent Home Sales

While you may feel frustrated and unsure of how to proceed, our attorney may be able to help you by holding the negligent party accountable.

When you purchase a home or other type of property, you should receive a Seller's Disclosure Statement from the seller/owner. In this document, the owner must disclose any and all deficiencies or problems they know about, for example:

  • Wet, moldy basement
  • Damaged roof
  • Mold in the home
  • Foundation problems

If they do not disclose and they knew or should have known about the deficiency, then you may have a case. They may have withheld information intentionally to try to maximize the value of the sale.
