Phoenix Construction Defect and Building Code Lawyers
Schneider & Onofry, P.C. in Phoenix offers legal services to owners and contractors in disputes over construction defects and building code violations. Sometimes this involves assisting a client through the registrar process for construction defects. Hiring legal representation in matters before the registrar is important because the contractor's license may be at risk. In other situations, due to the extreme nature of a problem or the amount of time and expense likely to be involved, a client may choose to file a lawsuit.

Making an Informed Decision
It is not a foregone conclusion that the registrar process is the right process for every owner. If a construction defect involves the structural safety and soundness of a house, its habitability, or something else that is major, the registrar process may be inadequate. Also, repair of a deficiency is the only relief available to an owner through the registrar process. It does not allow for punitive or compensatory damages.
Many individuals view the registrar process as pro-homeowner. This is another reason it makes good sense to seek the advice of an experienced attorney when faced with a construction defect dispute. An experienced attorney can assess the situation objectively, bringing in forensic experts if necessary, and recommend a course of action based on the facts and the law. Hiring a lawyer after the registrar process has finished may be too late.
