Understanding Common Legal Issues Involving Contractors Including Failure of Payment or Failure to Perform
Court disputes between a property owner and a contractor hired for a construction or renovation project frequently arise. In some courts, especially the Small Claims Court, cases involving contractors and homeowners are prevalent. In such cases it is common that a property owner will accuse a contractor of poor quality work; and in turn, the contractor accuses the property owner of failure to make proper payment.
Construction Law Cases Include:
Involves poor work or alleged failure to perform.
Includes resulting interior water damage.
Involves design/install and maintenance issues.
Involves failures resulting in water damage.
Includes defects by unlicensed contractors.
Involves allegations of faulty tree work.
Construction law cases can be very challenging to litigate due to the extent of laws invollves as well as the extent of evidence usually involved and the need for independent witnesses to inspect and provide expert reports as to what constitutes as proper workmanship and thus whether the trade standards or the contractual specifications for the project were met, valuation of the portion of work properly completed, among other things; and accordingly, even the seasoned legal professional may find construction law cases as burdensome to litigate. These cases are often extra challenging and troublesome due to the conduct of the parties involved and breach of various legal duties occuring prior to the obtaining legal advice.
Additionally, litigation arising from construction or renovation disputes often extends into legal issues beyond the defective workmanship issues and include legal concerns such as unjust enrichment, consumer protection laws, failures to mitigate, among other concerns.
