Parties Liable For The Defect 

With bigger builds come more intricacies, team members, and often multiple contractors. The construction site’s dynamic nature can make it difficult to determine responsibility for a defect found on your property. Whether this defect emerged during the construction or design phase of your build, start by locating the responsible parties. The liability of a defect doesn’t always fall only into the hands of the general contractor leading your project, so it’s important to investigate in order to identify the contributing parties that are directly responsible. Here are a few of the potential parties that may have liability:
