After only 51 days in mediation, the Northwood Villas Homeowners Assn. in Irvine was awarded $1.9 million in damages from Woodcrest Development, a defunct home builder, the lawyer representing the group said. The 179-unit condominium community took the case to mediation after finding construction defects that included window and framing damage and water leaks. While disputes in multifamily buildings are common, they seldom are resolved this quickly.
