Habitability expert witnesses may be sought out for numerous cases involving various forms of real estate, as habitability refers to the living conditions of a residence and whether said conditions are suitable for habitation, usually as agreed upon by a contractual warranty. Habitability expert consulting may provide insightful information for cases involving such issues as real estate brokerage, general contracting, real estate transactions, construction-related matters, engineering, rebuilding, electrical engineering, structural pest control, urban entomology, architecture, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessibility, document examination, and other areas pertaining to real estate, each of which may be at the focus of a habitability-related lawsuit.
Habitability experts are often from a background working with construction, since habitability is directly related to such issues as building management, construction damages, foundation, framing, indoor air quality, the presence of molds and fungus, plumbing, roofing and waterproofing, and other construction-related areas. If a building inspection reveals that construction defects have an impact on the habitability of a residence, the proper building repairs must be made, as failing to do so would be in violation of contractual agreements and grounds for possible lawsuits.
In addition to construction building codes, habitability experts may also have experience with construction documents analysis, construction estimating, economic analysis, agent and broker standards, leases, zoning, and other related issues.
