Gary M. Stein and K. Stefan Chin authored an article that appeared on the South Florida Associated General Contractors online Newswire on July 23, 2015. The article titled “Contractors and Builders Take Note: 2015 Amendments to Chapter 558, Florida Statutes – Florida’s “Notice and Opportunity to Cure” Statute” discusses key amendments to Chapter 558, Florida Statutes, which become effective October 1, 2015. The Associated General Contractors of America successfully sought passage of this bill with the goal of improving the statutory construction defect resolution procedure and ensuring that recipients of Chapter 558 Notices – including general contractors, subcontractors, and suppliers – are provided with additional information so they can attempt to proactively and effectively address alleged construction defects and potentially reduce the time, resources, and expenses associated with a construction defect lawsuit.
