LATENT CONSTRUCTION DEFECTS


The construction defect lawyers at Cowie & Mott, P.A. have extensive experience handling construction claims involving latent construction defects in residential and commercial buildings, such as newly constructed apartments, condominiums, office buildings, mixed use developments, high-rise buildings, mid rise buildings, townhouse communities and individual residences. Even minor latent construction defects, hidden behind or within walls, left uncorrected can cause substantial hidden property damage as shown in the photos below. In more serious cases latent defects can result in structural failures that create a life safety risk of personal injury or death to the occupants and their guest as well to their personal property.

Quality control during construction is essential, but owners of newly constructed building should always have them evaluated by a qualified building consult or design professional to identify potential latent construction defects while warranties, contract claims and other legal rights can still be enforced and repairs obtained or paid for by the responsible parties. Building Envelope failure can go unnoticed for years. Building condition assessments, reserve analysis reports, and other Construction evaluations by qualified consultants can reveal latent construction defects early in the life of building which might not otherwise become apartment until years later, after major damage has occurred and legal rights against the responsible parties have expired. An example of this would be a Transition Deficiency Report that Condominium and Homeowners Associations (HOA) conduct after taking control of the Association from the developer.
