New Construction Defects
Have you recently bought a newly constructed home? Did you immediately begin noticing defects on the exterior or interior of the home, or on the property itself? Have your communications with the home builder left you frustrated, and feeling like your new home will never be the home you thought you were purchasing at closing? If so, you are not alone.
Buying a home is the biggest investment that many people make in their lifetime, and you deserve to get the home that you bargained for. If you were promised certain things by the home builder, you deserve those promises to be carried out. There are many reasons why people will go through the closing process when there are still things to be done to the property and home. If issues were addressed prior to closing, and the home builder included language in your closing documents promising to finish and/or remedy certain issues, those promises were in consideration for closing on the property. Therefore, they are part of your contract, and are enforceable.
If your home builder made promises to you in your closing documents and has refused or delayed performance of those promises, contact the construction and residential real estate attorneys at Shipman & Wright, LLP for a free and confidential consultation and case evaluation.
