New York Construction Defects Paper

Defective construction exists throughout all construction projects, and it is likely no construction project is ever completed perfectly. In New York construction, however, perfection is not the legal standard work is required to achieve.

Issues relating to defective construction make for complex litigation and arbitrations, and correcting defective construction can come with a large price tag.

This free paper provides a generalized introduction to this area of law, as well as examinations of design based defects, construction based defects, improperly used materials, improperly installed materials, and a discussion of some of the time limitations imposed on bringing a New York construction defect action.
