Construction Law

Property Owners

In construction law, a property owner is someone who owns property and contracts with another person (a general contractor) to build on that property. On occasion, the property owner will run into performance issues from the general contractor. Other times, a general contractor may refuse performance altogether. If you are a property owner under contract having difficulty with a general contractor, call us now to discuss your options.

Homeowners’ and Property Owners’ Associations (HOA/POAs)

Sometimes a lawsuit by one property owner is impractical. For instance, condominiums and closely-nit residential subdivisions built by the same general contractor or developer often suffer construction defects that touch and concern many. A builder might install the wrong shingle on every home in the neighborhood, or the plumbing could be defective throughout a single structure with multiple units affecting everyone who lives there. These claimants need a law firm that knows how to assert a class action or who can work closely with the HOA/POA to meet the requirements to retain counsel under the HOA/POA’s established rules and operating procedures. If you and your neighbors or your HOA/POA are having issues with new construction, call us right away to discuss your options. Time is of the essence.

General Contractors

A general contractor (or original contractor) is a person contracting with a property owner either directly or through the owner’s agent. Occasionally, general contractors run into payment issues with the property owner. General contractor’s must act fast in order to perfect a lien or make a claim for retainage. If you’re a general contractor having payment issues with a property owner, call us now. Time is of the essence.

Subcontractors

A subcontractor is a person who has furnished labor or materials to fulfill an obligation to a general contractor or subcontractor to perform all or part of the work required by an original contract. First-tier subcontractors are those subcontractors and suppliers having an agreement with the original contractor. Second-tier subcontractors and suppliers (and all lower tiers) do not have an agreement with the original contractor. Occasionally, subcontractors run into payment issues with the general contractor. First and second-tier subcontractors must act very quickly in order to trap funds or perfect a lien. If you’re a subcontractor and have not been paid, call us right away. Time is of the essence.
