Legal Cases Involving Contractors Commonly Arise for Various Concerns Including Failure of Payment or Failure to Perform

Contractor Agreement Document Court disputes between a property owner and a contractor hired for a construction or renovation project frequently arise.  In some courts, especially the Small Claims Court, cases involving contractors and homeowners are prevalent.  In such cases it is common that a property owner will accuse a contractor of poor quality work; and in turn, the contractor accuses the property owner of failure to make proper payment.

Concerns

Construction law cases can be very challenging to litigate due to the extent of laws invollves as well as the extent of evidence usually involved and the need for independent witnesses to inspect and provide expert reports as to what constitutes as proper workmanship and thus whether the trade standards or the contractual specifications for the project were met, valuation of the portion of work properly completed, among other things; and accordingly, even the seasoned legal professional may find construction law cases as burdensome to litigate.  These cases are often extra challenging and troublesome due to the conduct of the parties involved and breach of various legal duties occuring prior to the obtaining legal advice.

Example Cases Include:
Renovators

Involves poor work or alleged failure to perform.

Roofers

Includes resulting consequential interior damage.

Landscapers
