There are a number of issues that can come up when you hire a contractor to build a structure. These issues aren't limited only to new construction projects. They can also occur in renovations and expansions. If you are planning on hiring a contractor for a construction project, you must ensure that you know what rights you have for the project.
One thing that is important is that you get the project's plans outlined in a contract. This gives you written proof of what was agreed upon. The contract should be as detailed as possible so you can pull points out of it if you have to take legal action against the contractor.
Another important thing to know is that you have the right to expect that a contractor won't use substandard materials. This can be a challenge because you might not be able to inspect all of the items used in the project. If you do find out that the materials weren't up to par, we can help you take legal action.
You also have the right to expect that the work that is done will be done in accordance with set standards. Just like you have the right to take action for substandard materials, you also have the right to take action for substandard work.
There are some cases when the issue with the construction doesn't have to do with your own project. Maybe a contractor is encroaching on your property or maybe you don't think the project next to your property is up to code. We recently discussed a case in which a couple wanted to stop the construction of a firing range. This is another type of construction case.
When anything is amiss with your construction project or one is impacting you in a negative manner, we can evaluate the case to help you determine what actions you might take. From there, we will help to put your plan into action.
