Code Violations and Damages for Property Owners
The Dallas / Fort Worth area is growing fast and real estate is booming all over. While this can be great for property owners who have finally found a lucrative space to run a business or a home to live in, sometimes construction is not to code, meaning it could be unsafe. An unsafe structure might lead to more than just safety issues; it could also result in huge financial costs for a property owner. However, if your building was not built to code, you might be able to fight back against the people who violated their construction responsibilities. The attorneys of Gagnon, Peacock & Vereeke, P.C., help Dallas / Fort Worth property owners fight for compensation that may be their due.
Common Code Violations
City codes dictate every detail of construction in order to ensure the safety of structures in the Dallas / Fort Worth area. Unfortunately, there are common code violations that builders perpetrate, such as:
- Construction without a permit
- Unsafe or ineffective plumbing
- Poor or non-existent insulation
- Unsound foundation / structure
- Improper appliances installed
All of these are common code violations that would normally be caught during an inspection, but sometimes builders avoid getting inspections at all. In any case, if your property is found to be dangerous or damaged, then you might be able to make a construction defect case with the help of a Dallas / Fort Worth attorney.
