Tennessee Construction Defect Law

In Tennessee, any construction defect cases have a statute of repose, or statute of limitations, of four years. This is true regardless of when the defect is discovered. The only exception to this is in cases of blatant fraudulent concealment. Additionally, some contracts can require a claim to be filed sooner.

If you suspect a construction defect, it's important to reach out to an attorney as soon as possible. We can look over any involved construction contracts and act quickly to get your case started.

Owners & Construction Defects

If you are a property owner and you have discovered a defect on your property, it is important to determine whether you may have grounds for legal action against the builder, contractor, subcontractor, engineer, or other responsible party. Because there are variances in any construction project, an attorney’s insight and experience will prove invaluable in defect cases. At Upkins Law, we can investigate the problem to see whether it is an issue of poor workmanship, substandard materials, or an improper design. We can then pursue fair compensation to repair the defect and recoup your losses.
