A homeowner has the right to work that is performed on time and in a skilled and workmanlike manner. The recent movement toward licensing contractors doing major projects or builds will likely improve results for the general public; however, there are steps that should be taken prior to entering an agreement for work to be performed on a restoration, renovation, addition or build that will protect the homeowner against work that is not performed as promised. An invoice from the contractor may not be sufficient to allow for a written agreement as to specific terms of a project to be deemed to have been created, or it will not memorialize the expectations of the homeowner. Sound legal advice on the front end can assist to ensure that the experience of building a home or having work done on your home is a pleasurable one.Contractor Litigation
A contractor is held to a certain standards of performance in all situations, and there are steps that should be taken to both ensure that those standards are reasonable and that all that is needed to complete a job is provided. When multiple contractors are involved, there may be instances of finger-pointing that associate responsibility of a project gone wrong to the wrong contractor. Further, proper advice from lawyers regarding corporate structuring, licensing, insurance and bonding considerations can assist contractors in dealing with all situations that may arise.Contact Baker & Slider, LLC
