Orland Law Group Stays Up-To-Date On Construction Defect Laws And Litigation Rules
Construction defect laws change often. For builders, developers and their insurers facing damage claims, it is important to work with a law firm that stays up-to-date on the most recent legislative developments as well as court case decisions.
A key example of an issue that requires scrutiny in a given case is the Right to Repair Act. This act sets out requirements for dissatisfied consumers. In a nutshell, the act states that homeowners must first submit a claim to a builder before filing a lawsuit. If the builder does not offer to fix the defect, then the homeowner can proceed with the lawsuit. The act includes strict timelines for submitting claims, waiting for responses and filing lawsuits.
