Renovation Restitution

After a couple was ordered to pay $1.3 million to the owners of 19 properties whose newly renovated homes posed a safety hazard, the DC Council proposed a bill to help homeowners whose properties have been affected by shoddy renovation jobs. The Substandard Construction Relief Act of 2018 would provide restitution to homeowners who were the victims of flippers whose construction was illegal or not up to code.

In addition, the bill proposes changes to the Construction Codes Approval and Amendments Act of 1986 that would allow owners of adjacent properties affected by the construction to file a civil suit against the offending party. Stay tuned for updates on the progress of this legislation.
