Hi all,

One year into the pandemic, we've seen plenty of changes across the industry, but our firm's commitment to our clients hasn't wavered. Our team is eager to assist you with any of your construction defect claims, and we're just a call or email away.

With warmer weather on the horizon, we're looking forward to even more opportunities to see our industry friends at virtual events and in-person ones when safe to do so.

As always, all of us at Riley Pasek Canty LLP are here to help. Please feel free to get in touch via phone at (844) 775-5000 or in a reply to this email.

Managing Partner


In 2020, we began our SB326 Compliance Program to help HOAs comply with SB326 for any project under 10 years old, including balconies, decks, porches, stairways, and walkways.
**The first inspection must be completed by January 1, 2025**

  • Retain our team and we hire at our cost a licensed structural engineer or architect to perform the mandatory inspection of exterior elevated elements. 

  • Inspections will include testing of all waterproofing and structural support systems. 

  • Our retained expert will submit the required inspection report to the Board and will make recommendations for repair or replacement if needed. 

  • Our firm will meet with the Board to discuss results and make legal recommendations regarding a potential claim against a builder.
