Alan Schimmel Authors Article on Expiring Statutory Period for Construction Defect Lawsuits in Daily Journal

Managing Partner Alan Schimmel authored the article, "10 Years After Housing Boom, End of Strict Liability Statute for Latent Defects Nears," published in Daily Journal discussing the 10-year statutory period during which homeowners can bring construction defect lawsuits against homebuilders. Hundreds of thousands of homeowners who purchased their home during the housing boom of the mid-2000s may not be aware of the latent defects that have been overlooked, and by the time they are discovered, filing a lawsuit may not be possible. Mr. Schimmel explains, "It is imperative that your homeowner clients be mindful of how the statutory scheme surrounding construction defect law could impact their claims."

Mr. Schimmel, an experienced attorney in construction defect law, advises homeowners to take a proactive approach by hiring licensed contractors to perform a thorough home walk-through.
