Q.

What is the intent or purpose of Chapter 558 of the Florida Statutes?

A.

558 was intended by the Florida legislature to keep construction disputes and cases out of court, so it’s supposed to give an opportunity for an owner to contact the contractor or subcontractor of an alleged defect and hopefully get it resolved prior to any lawsuit being necessary.
