The Upstate of South Carolina – particularly Greenville and Spartanburg – are in the midst of a construction boom. While the development is welcome, the race to build sometimes results in shoddy construction. When a home, a development, an apartment complex, or a commercial building begins experiencing problems with construction, it may be necessary to talk to an attorney to explore your options.
Construction cases are complex, almost always requiring expert work, destructive testing, and a detailed look at construction documents. Additionally, South Carolina law includes various requirements for construction cases – such as Right to Cure letters and affidavit requirements – that must be satisfied to ensure a viable case. Hiring a lawyer who can navigate the requirements and properly prepare a case is essential.
Jay has been handling construction cases for the entirety of his legal career. Those matters have ranged from single-family homes to townhome communities to apartment complexes.
Construction cases can be complicated and expensive. That expense can prove problematic for owners and HOAs. In some situations, Jay is able to work on a contingency basis, requiring no up-front attorney’s fee. Jay regularly works with expert witnesses to evaluate, investigate, and pursue construction defect work in an effort to make owners whole and to put them in a position to repair defective work.
