Failing to meet the provisions of a contract, whether they be in regard to the quality of the product, timeliness of completion of the project or failure to disclose material facts, is a breach of contract. Depending on the specific circumstances, the non-breaching party may be entitled to damages caused by the breach.
Our breach of contract lawyers understand the frustrations of dealing with an insurance company's failure to pay a valid claim or a contractor's failure to complete the remodel or building. Call Murray & Damschen, P.C., today for a free assessment of your case.
Our attorneys handle common construction defects that lead to financial difficulty and damages such as:
- Expansive soils
- Building envelope defects
- Real or synthetic stucco (EIFS) systems
- Mold and water damage
Failure to take reasonable measures to avoid these common defects is a breach of the building or remodeling agreement.
Sellers' Failure to Disclose
In cases where sellers purposefully fail to disclose problems with a home they are selling, they may have acted in breach of the purchase agreement with the buyer. A seller can be held responsible for damages suffered by a purchaser as a result of their failure to disclose known defects in the property. In many cases the seller who has been found to have knowingly failed to disclose may also be held responsible for paying the purchasers attorneys fees.
