You've come to the right place. If you own property, a housing and construction defect attorney can help with problems discovered during or after construction.
Construction defect attorneys handle structural engineering defects (e.g., leaky roofs and dry rot) and contractual disputes (e.g., excessive costs of construction materials and labor and the use of defective materials).
Use FindLaw to hire a local housing and construction defects attorney if you suspect defective construction of your property.
Consider the following:
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
