Construction law refers to any legal issues that come up related to the construction of a structure or building. This can include things such as breaches of contract, defects, mechanic's liens and other factors that may impact construction.
There are various types of construction contracts that you can have for a single project. Usually, the contract contains information about things such as the quality of work or materials expected, specifications for the project and the timeline for it. Payment and other provisions are typically also included.
Whether you are a contractor or the owner of a new building, construction defects can quickly turn a new project into a legal nightmare. Serious defects may make new properties uninhabitable and even lead to costly and time-consuming litigation.
