When you purchase or improve a home or premises, you are entitled to receive what you bargained for in the construction contract. Increasingly, however, Hawaii consumers are finding that what they had paid for is not what they in fact received in the end. Construction defects can include something as simple as a poor paint job, to more complex problems such as sinking foundations.
In such cases, the liable parties can include the general contractor, as well as subcontractors and other entities. In the event your claim involves a contractor or a professional such as an architect or engineer, you may be required to take certain steps as a pre-condition to filing a lawsuit.
