What kind of disputes can lead to construction litigation?

Construction litigation occurs for a variety of reasons. Essentially, any kind of unresolved construction dispute between clients and contractors can lead to litigation. Disputes between these parties happen a lot more often than you may think, especially in Florida’s booming construction industry.

Regardless of whether you are a developer or a contractor, you will likely enter into one or more contracts defining the terms of your agreements. If the involved parties disagree on the terms of the signed contracts construction disputes can occur. Often, the parties are able to reach a resolution without intervention, but other times, construction litigation is the logical solution. Below are some examples of construction disputes that could end up in a court’s hands.

  • Differing interpretations about the scope or specifications of a project
  • Breach of contract arising from construction defects and poor workmanship
  • Replacing an original subcontractor with an entirely different subcontractor
  • Disagreements between contractors and subcontractors regarding the project
  • Failure to pay a contractor or subcontractor for work provided in accordance with a signed contract

As you can see, construction disputes can arise on all sides of a property development project. Even if you are not the person who initiates construction litigation, it will still affect your end of the project resulting in costly delays and other obstacles.

Regardless of your role in the project, you can mitigate some of these potential construction disputes by seeking guidance from a lawyer experienced in business and real estate law. This protects your rights and your best interests by ensuring any contracts you sign are as fair and balanced as possible.
