Helping contractors enjoy the New Orleans housing boom

On Behalf of | Mar 8, 2019 | Condominium And Homeowners Association Law |

Right now, the area in and around the Big Easy is experiencing a spike in new construction projects. In particular, new condominium develops are popping up all over the greater New Orleans area.

In a perfect world, a high demand for new construction can lead to economic prosperity for contractors and others in the business. However, with high demand also comes a tendency for subcontractors and others to rush their work so as to move on to the next job.

The end result can be serious legal issues related to a construction project one is involved in. For instance, the construction may be defective or even downright unsafe. In other cases, the construction may be safe from a general point of view, but it is unfortunately in violation of a local building code or a provision in a contract.

In these sorts of cases, contractors, leaders of a condominium association and others may need legal protection. Otherwise, such people could wind up having to shell over lots of money for a problem that is really not their fault. The end result could be that, for the person holding the bag, the construction boom in Southern Louisiana becomes an absolute bust.
