California Construction Law Attorney Sues Contractor for Water Intrusion in Santa Clara County Custom HomeWe Focus on Construction Defect Litigation on a Contingency Fee Basis
The California construction law firm of Schoech Law Group has filed a lawsuit on behalf of the original owners of a 2006 multi-million dollar residence in Santa Clara County. In 2012, the owner of the 12,000 sq. ft. residence discovered water intrusion into the 3,000+ sq. ft. basement resulting in significant water damage. The owner tried contacting the builder but their attempts were ignored. Prior to filing suit they hired a crew of contractors to dig up the drainage system around the perimeter of the house to rectify the problem. The repair efforts have cost the owners thousands of dollars which will be included as additional monetary damage in the lawsuit.
After being contacted by the owners, Schoech Law Group immediately hired a forensic expert to inspect the property and assess the damage. Attorney, Matt Schoech, and the expert visited the site and documented many areas of concern. The following damages, among others, were found: defective roof truss framing members, window leaks with interior damage adjacent to window locations, inoperable appliances indicating a potential issue with the electrical system, and the HVAC system below Title 24 requirements. The expert’s inspection report will be used as a key instrument in prosecuting the client’s claim.
Schoech Law Group is currently litigating cases in surrounding counties such as San Mateo, Santa Cruz, and Alameda. They have recently settled cases in other nearby counties obtaining significant settlement recoveries for their clients. They handle cases throughout all of northern California as far down as Santa Barbara County.
