Construction Defect Litigation

Schoech Law Group, PC’s practice focuses on construction defect litigation. Schoech Law Group, PC, has extensive experience with cases involving defects both in custom and tract single family homes, townhomes, condominiums and commercial buildings. They have long championed the plight of homeowners who discover problems with their homes including structural defects, geotechnical issues, leaking windows, plumbing, roofs, defective stucco, and many others. The firm seeks compensation from builders, developers, design professionals, and contractors, who, denying liability, refuse to fix the problems. The Schoech Law Group attorneys have recovered millions of dollars in compensation for clients from large national homebuilders and smaller custom home builders throughout the State of California.

Although these lawsuits may appear to be class actions, they are actually filed as group/mass actions where a group of individual owners join forces to seek compensation to fix their construction defects. These cases are considered complex under the California Rules of Court and require special handling. Schoech Law Group has vast experience and success handling these complex cases which often involve dozens of parties.

Construction defect litigation can sometimes be a long process. The staff of Schoech Law Group is here to walk you and your neighbors through the entire process. We start with a free evaluation of your case and will work with each individual property owner to better understand the issues in its entirety. Schoech Law Group will then work directly with our expert consultants; contractors, geotechnical engineers, architects, etc so you don’t have to be burdened.

California law provides for minimum building standards in new homes built for sale to the public and the builders often advertise they are high quality. If a builder fails to adhere to these standards as they often try to cut corners with the cheapest products, you have a right to recover either the cost of repair or diminution in value. Almost any condition that reduces the value of a home, condominium, or common area can be legally recognized as a defect in design or workmanship, or a defect related to land movement. Types of construction defects include:

Roof and Plumbing Leaks

Water Intrusion

Cracked Foundation/ Soil Movement

Cracked Exterior of Drywall

Fire Damage
