Steps To Prevent And Resolve Contractor Issues
California can be a wonderful place to build a home, but that doesn't mean the construction process is always straightforward. Sometimes contractors don't complete the work as you expected or there is a misunderstanding about the terms of the project.
Before engaging in any construction project, we recommend that you always follow these steps:
Review The Contract Before Signing
You should never sign a legal document without understanding exactly what it means. When you're making such a huge investment, you need to make sure that you take the appropriate steps.
A construction lawyer is an invaluable asset during a construction project. Before work has begun, we can review your contract, explain its terms and conditions to you and inform you of any potential problems or rights that you could be signing away.
Seek Legal Protection From Disputes
If, at any point, you reach a dispute or a breach of contract, contact an attorney immediately. We can hold contractors accountable for their errors or negligence.
Some problems you may encounter include:
- Disputes over billing
- Incomplete work
- Refusal to fix a defect
- Contractor lacks proper license or permit
