Customer Question

In the state of Georgia , I am a contractor , built a home in 2006 , pass all state and city inspection building codes along with passing their bank inspections as well at the time,
and now the home has settling issues , with cracks in a few places. The owner thinks it's my fault. It was built under my Corporation, and I sign as president on the contract
The insurance does not settle with home settling issues
This month it will be six years. I've explain that all homes will settle , but I am willing to assist them with some repair for them but I am not response before the entire situation.
What kind of case do they have ? Or What can I do.
Thank you

In Georgia the homeowner had up to 8 years to file a construction defect claim. It is hard to say if they have a strong case without knowing the specifics of the settling issues. It may be cheaper to help them resolve the issues than to litigate but I would have them sign a release that your assistance is not an admission of guilt.

Even if the city code inspectors sign off as everything was done in compliance of the state codes at the time, and should I hire a scriptural engineer to look at the home and give me and the customer a report. Will this help me or hurt me?
Real Estate Lawyer: Asad Rahman, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

That certainly helps your case but inspections would not really address settlement issues. The engineering report's impact on yoir case would really depend on the results.
