Abstract. The his research looks specifically into the potential legal liability of the entity capable of detecting construction defects: contractor, nonprofessional owner, professional owner, technical supervisor, designer and building inspector. In this study, the responsibility of each entity for construction defects is discussed and the corre-sponding documentation and statutory and case law are analyzed for the U.S., Lithuania, and some other countries for comparative purposes. Because fewer cases on this topic exist under Lithuanian law it is helpful to practitioners to see how other jurisdictions handle this issue.
