In a world of increasingly complex rules in relation to building codes, construction contracts, sub-trade work, timely completion, problems with payments, quality and warrantee, very often people are faced with circumstances in which they really need legal help.
If you are hiring a builder to do the simplest of renovations or to coordinate and execute a sophisticated construction project, you must be able to understand what your builder's obligations to you are and ensure you get full value for the money you spend. When the project is done and problems do develop, you must also have the comfort that proper warrantee or remediation of problems will be available.
If you are builder or contractor, you strive to perform for your customers and to give them the high degree of quality and service that you pride yourself on; there is value in that and you need to be paid on a timely basis and in a hassle-free way. That does not always happen. In the management of your business you must have the tools to protect your right to be paid. Receivables management is critical, as is the need to assert your legal rights when a dispute occurs using the power of the Builders' Lien Act and other means of enforcement.
