Complaint lists alleged defects at Edgewater Isle South
Both Edgewater Isle South and North were involved in the HOA industry-obligatory construction defects lawsuit. Most every CID homeowners association development built in the 1980's and 1990's has gone through this type of litigation. New legislation has passed regarding filing this type of lawsuit since this one was filed. Those interested should review the relevant sections of Civil Code § 4000 - 6150 (in particular, Chapter 11).
Edgewater Isle South Homeowners Association was the first association at Edgewater Isle to file a construction defects lawsuit.
