The purchase of a newly constructed home should be a joyful experience in which you realize the dream of a house you planned and saved for. In most instance, this results in an excited move-in, and a happy ending where you and your family live comfortably in your home for many years to come. But sadly, for some, this is not the case. Instead, these homeowners find that their home has defects, issues and/or dangerous construction problems. When this happens, it's time to turn to the law to help you reclaim your dream.
A construction defect is an imperfection in a homeowner's property that reduces the value of the property. Construction defects encompass a wide variety of faults and may include a failure to properly design, plan, inspect or construct a structure. Arizona property owners who find themselves involved in a construction dispute over such imperfections may wish to have a better understanding of what a construction defect entails.
