Ricochet Construction Does Multifamily and Apartment Liability Issue Repair in the Dallas Area
Liability issues are a constant concern in multifamily and apartment ownership and property management. An unmaintained property can open a building owner or ownership group to a range of liabilities that are both unnecessary and avoidable. Regular maintenance and inspection of properties goes a long way to avoiding the type of liability issues that can seriously damage a real estate business.

Liability Can Be Greatly Reduced By Contracting With a Company like Ricochet Construction
There are two general categories of liability issues for multifamily structures. Let’s take a moment to look at each of them with a little initial depth in order to explain the different issues owners, property mangages, and investors need to watch out for.
First, liability can arise in even very well-built buildings due to the general wear and tear that occurs in all structures over time. If not seen to in time, even once trustworthy and reliable buildings can turn into true liability risks. All building materials degrade due to weather conditions -- including summer heat, winter freezes, high winds, flood and even fire -- as well as infestations from a range of fungus and insects. Over time, these can become potentially hazardous without it being obvious to an untrained professional. These liabilities can range from load bearing issues -- the structure isn’t strong enough to handle weight loads anymore due to degradation -- general structural integrity, and the impeding of walkway and tripping hazards. General maintenance and inspection checks done on a regular basis, as well as surveys handed out to residents for any issues they see, can go a long way to helping you stay on top of all time-based degradation issues.
Second, liability issues can be present in the original building itself. There are sometimes issues with original building practices or designs that don’t present themselves immediately, or which are ignored as they can be considered safe, even if not ideal. It’s important to have a true professional inspect and sign off on all building practices and quality of work done. Clear inspection of original work will head off what can be much more expensive remediation work that might need to be done in order to rectify issues that were actually put in place at the time of the original constructions.
Does Ricochet Do All Forms of Liability Issue Repairs?
There’s nothing more frustrating for owners and property managers than to have to deal with multiple contractors across many different liability repair projects. It’s just a fact of business that every new contractor you hire is both potentially a great partner, and potentially an ongoing business problem. Every different vendor and business does things differently, and new relationships require new evaluation of their work, commitment, and trustworthiness.
Because multifamily liability repairs are so important, and diverse -- including stairways and balconies, to garages and parking lots, to accessibility, and even seismic retrofits and disaster repair after fire and floods -- it is easy to get overwhelmed as a property manager or owner. The convenience and trust built up when you deal with a single company like Ricochet can’t be over-valued, because it helps avoid delays, headaches, and, worst of all, unacceptable work.
