How to resolve a construction dispute

Embarking on a construction project in the state of Florida is always going to include some risk, even if you have spent time carefully drafting the contract and the terms. If a dispute has arisen in a construction project that you are a part of, it is important that you address the problem immediately.

A dispute should be viewed simply as a disagreement between parties. The more detailed and clear the signed contract is, the better chance you will have in resolving the dispute. It is important that you try not to react to the situation with emotion, but instead that you keep focused on what the contract says about the situation.

Why do breaches of contract arise?

Often, breaches of a contract simply arise because one party has failed to understand the conditions. This can be an honest mistake, but it can result in difficulties if they misinterpreted the contract because it was unclear.

Sometimes there will be a breach in the time-frame of a contract because of delays due to unforeseen circumstances. This is why it is a good idea to introduce penalty clauses within the contract to address late deliveries.

How should construction contract disputes be handled?

Good communication can go along way when a dispute arises. You may want to involve negotiation or mediation experts, or you may want to go through the process of arbitration.

If you are feeling overwhelmed because of a construction contract dispute, you should try and remain calm. Focus on taking positive action and following procedure rather than allowing anger to come into the equation.
