Common Construction Law Issues 

Most people are unfamiliar with the complexities of a construction project. There is far more that goes into a project than simply designing and building on a site – there is a significant amount of work to be done before contractors ever break ground. 

There are countless ordinances, rules, and regulations and a sea of red tape to go through at the beginning of any construction project. Cities have committees dedicated to upholding these ordinances and construction businesses must work in tandem with them to reach an agreement and begin working. Keeping up with these regulations and any legal matters that arise along the way can delay a project or even stop it altogether. 

Some common construction law issues include: 

  • Negotiation and review of contracts 
  • Damage claims
  • Obtaining approval from regulatory bodies
  • Lien laws
  • Surety issues 
  • Faulty materials claims
  • Licensing 
  • Geotechnical matters 
  • Performance issues 
  • Foundation claims
  • Unsafe work conditions 
  • And more 

These legal matters are extremely complex and can lead to the termination of a building contract and potentially costly settlements if not handled correctly. For contractors, developers, surety companies, and any other parties involved in a building project, litigation or other legal issues bog down progress and discourage investors. 

That is why it is crucial that you enlist the help of a qualified attorney if you are facing any of the issues listed above.
