Steps To Prevent And Resolve Contractor Issues
California can be a wonderful place to build a home but that does not mean the construction process is always straightforward. Sometimes contractors do not complete the work you expected or there is a misunderstanding about the terms of the project. Always follow these steps when engaging in a project:
Review The Contract Before Signing
You should never sign a legal document without understanding exactly what it means. When you are making such a huge investment, you want to make sure you follow the right 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 problems or rights 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 errors or negligence on their part by negotiating a solution. Some problems you may encounter include:
- Disputes over billing
- Incomplete work
- Refusal to fix a defect
- Contractor lacks proper license or permit
File A Lawsuit
At Sullivan Law Group APC, we want what is best for our clients. In many cases, we can negotiate an excellent outcome for you. If a contractor refuses to negotiate, though, litigation may be necessary. We are prepared, at any moment, to fight for our clients in court. Contracts are legal documents that ensure certain rights and procedures that must be followed during the project.
