Our Construction Law Practice
Construction defects are often at the center of disputes regarding the development of property. These defects can undermine the value of a property for homeowners and investors and damage the reputation of the project, making it harder to sell units or fill vacancies.
At Griffin Alexander, P.C., we understand how important and how difficult and expensive the transition process can be. We recognize the importance of early discovery of construction deficiencies. We are experienced in litigation, but that is not our first choice of remedy. We engage in all forms of alternate dispute resolution from personally sitting down with developers to resolve disputes, to utilizing mediation, arbitration and judicial conferences.
Our New Jersey construction law attorneys also have significant experience advising clients early in the transition process, to minimize the likelihood of long, drawn-out legal battles down the road. Whether the problem is in the design, construction, oversight, faulty materials or inadequate inspection of a property, defects can wreak havoc on the physical structure and throw a significant wrench into how your community functions. We are seasoned in advising clients on both common and unusual defects including problems with:
- Building cladding and finishes,
- Leaks at roofs, windows, doors, balconies and other building penetrations,
- moisture protection,
- building structure,
- fire rating assemblies
- geotechnical or soils issues, and
- HVAC, plumbing, electrical, and acoustical systems.
Defects such as these can involve complicated factual and legal questions. Because defective conditions can sometimes go unnoticed for lengthy periods of time, it is important to have an experienced engineer or architect and reliable contractors working with you. We understand how important it is to address these disputes head-on, so that defects are not permitted to fester, and to assure that our clients’ rights are fully protected.
Our vast experience in these and other related legal matters gives us important insight into the strategies and tools that clients can use to avoid or swiftly resolve disputes. It also prepares us to ensure that every community association transition is as effective and beneficial as possible.
Understanding construction law as it applies to community associations means understanding the ins-and-outs of the relevant statutes and case law. We understand how best to navigate the murky waters of working with developers and unit owners as construction investigations unfold.
