Notice of Claims and Florida Law (Fla. Stat. Ch. 558)
Florida Statutes Chapter 558 governs resolution of construction defects and it applies to all commercial and residential construction projects unless the parties have agreed to opt-out of the requirements. Chapter 558 is considered an “effective alternative dispute resolution mechanism.” It is important to retain an attorney that understands the requirements of this statute before filing or defending a lawsuit involving construction defects.
