  • Your insurance policy may not cover the costs of an expensive Chapter 558 construction defect process. Florida's construction defect statute, Chapter 558, requires an owner to notify contractors of all alleged construction defects. After the notice is sent, the contractor notifies all of the trade contractors and a potentially expensive and time-consuming process of hiring experts, property inspections and letter writing ensues. Contractors will look to their insurance companies to cover the costs of hiring attorneys and experts to protect their interests during the process. Depending on the size and complexity of the project and the length of the owner's list of alleged defects the 558 process can be expensive.
