Prospective Purchaser Ballard Condominiums
RE: Construction Defect Litigation
Dear Prospective Purchaser:
This letter provides you an update on litigation pertaining to construction issues at Ballard Condominiums.
A portion of the litigation settled on Friday, January 11, 2008. All of the Defendants, with the exception of one, agreed to a total settlement of $2,890,000.00. This amount includes attorney fees and costs. Litigation continues as to one remaining party, and the insurance company for a second party. As a result of the partial settlement, the Board of Directors recently retained an architect to assist in determining the required repairs and a scope of work for bidders.
The next step is retaining a general contractor to proceed with the repairs. It is anticipated construction repairs will proceed sometime this summer and will conclude approximately six to eight months later.
If you have any questions you may contact me at (206) 284-8165 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sincerely Chris Casey
Donna, let me know if I can be of further help and/or if I can find out more information for you.
