Latitude Owners Association Recovers $2,395,000.00 for Construction Defects

San Diego, CA June 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — The following is being issued by The Naumann Law Firm, PC.

The Latitude Owners Association announced today that it has recovered $2,395,000.00 for a construction defect lawsuit against CS-Crossroads, LLC; CS-1 Management, Inc.; WK Development, Inc.; Davlyn Investments, Inc., dba Davlyn Property Management and Jon Williams.

The project was originally constructed as apartments and converted into condominiums during the 2004 to 2006 time frame in San Diego, California.

The case was filed in the San Diego Superior Court – Central Division on December 22, 2009. The condominiums were built on the side of a hillside with crawl spaces under the uphill side of the buildings. Mr. Naumann’s retained experts discovered that the crawlspaces were not properly waterproofed which resulted in numerous problems. These problems included rotting plywood under walkways, water intrusion into units, pipe leaks and poor ventilation. Mr. Naumann’s experts also discovered that the retrofitted windows were leaking. In addition, repairs of the outside decks had been performed improperly. After multiple mediations and depositions, Mr. Naumann was able to obtain a settlement for his client in the amount of $2,395,000.00.

Bill Naumann and Monnett De La Torre were the handling attorneys.
