Can I Sue My Contractor?

A homeowner in Texas can sue a builder for construction defects. In fact, Texas has one of the strongest laws in the country for protecting homeowners against construction defects, called the Residential Construction Liability Act (RCLA). Under the RCLA, homeowners have the right to sue builders for defects in the construction of their home, including defects in the foundation, roofing, plumbing, electrical systems, and other aspects of the home. The law requires that homeowners provide the builder with written notice of the defect and give the builder an opportunity to repair the defect before filing a lawsuit.
