Claims Brought by Homeowner Associations
Many construction defect matters arise in the construction of condominium, townhouse and other multi-unit residential construction projects. When defects impact common elements or multiple units, Murray and Damschen, P.C., can represent the HOA to address the construction defects impacting it's member's homes. Our attorneys work with homeowner associations and their consulting experts to get construction defects repaired. We strive to obtain repairs that go to the heart of the issues. Surface repairs that fail to address the underlying problems are short term and do not serve the true needs of the association. We help homeowner association boards identify qualified and experienced construction experts and forensic engineers to evaluate problems, suggest appropriate repair alternatives and prepare cost estimates.
As experienced construction defect attorneys, we are able to explain the legal and factual issues and alternatives to association members. We can attend meetings to address the concerns of members at board meetings at all stages of the process. As a small firm, we provide a high level of personal service to our clients.
We have represented HOAs in Denver and the mountain communities. We have represented homeowner associations in Colorado seeking damages for construction defects such as:
Negligent deck construction.
Expansive Soils, Soil heave and settlement related matters.
Grading and drainage.
Building envelope design and construction defects.
Defective roof design and construction.
Negligent design and workmanship.
Before resorting to costly and time-consuming litigation, we work with clients to make reasonable attempts to resolve problems with builders and developers. If a builder or developer will engage in reasonable negotiation, settlement without the need of litigation can be a win-win for all involved.
