During yesterday’s Denver Business Journal’s State of the Cities forum, the mayors of Denver and Aurora agreed there needs to be changes to the state’s construction defect laws. Claiming that there is too much liability risk for builders, developers and subcontractors because it is easy for associations to sue for defects, particularly in condominiums. Mayor Hancock said that the existing law “has chilled owner-occupied development for quite some time now.” Mayor Hogan explained that the focus should be on building communities, not rental properties.
