Construction defects and your residential real estate project

When construction defects take over your real estate transaction and put you in a troubling position, who's to blame for the errors that took place? In a normal situation, the construction defect case will be based on the contract you have with the developer of your real estate. The developer also may have subcontractors and others working for him who will also be under contract and could be held liable for certain errors or delays. Manufacturers of equipment can also be held liable for some defects in the case that machinery broke down due to defective parts.

What are the steps of foreclosure in South Carolina?

Foreclosure, in South Carolina and all other states, is a processes that takes place when a homeowner is not able to pay for the home or able to sell it to make up the debt. When a short sale can't be done, a foreclosure is the next option. With a foreclosure, the home goes to an auction. If that doesn't work out, then the home itself becomes the property of the lender, whether that's a bank or credit company.

Your options other than foreclosure in South Carolina

If you've been facing foreclosure in South Carolina, you do have other options that you might want to look into. Not every situation is able to be solved through foreclosure prevention programs, and if you don't want to keep your home, then you do have options. For example, if you can get a pending sales contract, your foreclosure could be postponed while the sale completes. That would give you time to pay off your loan balance and the expenses related to selling.
