Whether you are a first-time homebuyer or a retiring couple who has downsized, those in a homeowners’ association likely purchased their condo or town home with positive thoughts about their future in their beautiful new home. The investment was made with the belief that they and their loved ones would be safe. When safety and security are at risk because of construction defects, those dreams become nightmares and the financial impact can be overwhelming.
Mr. Pierce and his team have spent decades representing condominium owners and homeowner’s associations against project developers throughout California. These builders’ defective construction has left homeowners with damage in their individual homes and homeowners associations with damaged common area. In a condominium, owners may find they are responsible for not only the interior defects and damage but also for common area repairs through increase in dues or special assessments.
Our firm can navigate the complexities of such cases of construction of multi-residential units and recover your damage from developers, designers, engineers and contractors building defective housing along with each of their multiple layers of insurance coverage. We have efficiently and effectively represented owners and homeowner associations faced with construction problems such as:
- Structural damage
- Drainage systems
- Soils Failure
- Electrical, mechanical and plumbing systems
- Foundation, floor and roof cracks
- Stucco/coating systems
Example: In Tiara at Northgate, condominium project of approximately 200 units in the Bay Area, our team investigated defects in window and roof installations that were leaking, project wide, along with drainage issues and slope failures. Our on-site investigation with experts was vital to showing developer and its contractors the nature, extent and cost of the repair of the damage caused by the defective construction and bringing about a settlement in excess of $5,000,000 without the necessity and expense of trial.
Our Goal: to rapidly prepare your case and develop trial-ready evidence to move your case to a successful resolution in the most cost-effective manner.
