Imagine you bought a newly constructed, $700,000 home, and several months after you move in, you get hit by a heavy rainstorm -- only to find that the roof leaks. After having someone look into the problem, you find out it's going to cost $20,000 to fix the leaky roof. "Who's going to pay for this?" you'll probably ask.
The fact is, the construction company that was responsible for building your home should pay for the roof repairs, but that doesn't mean that the construction company will volunteer to do it. You might have to file a construction litigation claim to force the construction firm to pay for the repair.
