Like it or not, construction disputes are going to happen and they are actually more common than you may think. Luckily, an experienced attorney in Arizona construction law can help assist you in all construction legal disputes like not getting paid on time or misinterpretation of plans.
Once the construction project is finished, it can be a hassle to actually get paid. You might even need to hunt down the money to either get paid in full or get paid at all, possibly needing to go through the legal system. If your contract clearly states payment details, you should have no problem being able to get the money you are owed, especially with the legal representation of a skilled construction law attorney.
Specifications in Plans
Disagreements over modifications and amended plans occur quite often, usually between the owner and general contractor. These disputes are usually during the construction process or after the project is finished. Plans should never be confusing, but when they are, things can be misinterpreted easily. All plans should be just like contracts, clear and concise with all details included. Mis bidding and misquoting is another issue that causes disputes. This usually happens when only a portion of the job and hours are quoted. All pricing details should be clear and understood, including the cost of any extra supplies or extra hours.
Miscommunication can cause costly delays along with disputes and even legal issues, costing you more money and time in the end. Sometimes, there is no communication and updates about delays in the project aren’t projected. In addition, inadequate reasons or explanations are also going to raise disputes. At the end of the project, if any defects are found, it could result in a dispute. Communication should always be strong and any changes or delays to the project should be communicated right away.
