I recently had the opportunity to write an article for Colorado Builder Magazine, a snippet of which appears here.
Since the 1990’s, construction defect litigation has focused on condominiums and townhomes. By representing homeowner associations instead of individual owners, plaintiffs’ attorneys can more easily aggregate claims, thereby increasing exponentially the claimed damages.

In a new twist, the Latitude at Vista Ridge Homeowners Association in Erie filed a construction defect lawsuit claiming damages for construction defects in the single-family homes owned by its members. This is the first instance, of which I am aware, in which an association has sued for alleged defects in single-family homes.
