Construction payment disputes tend to be complex, involving several parties either directly or indirectly. As a result, a construction payment dispute can lead to messy, time consuming and costly litigation if it is not handled by an attorney who is thoroughly knowledgeable in construction law and experienced in all phases of litigation at the state and federal level.
Our attorneys handle a variety of matters related to construction payment and collection disputes, including:
- Stop notices
- Change orders
- Bond remedies
- Mechanic's liens
- Lien removal
- Surety law
- Construction delays
- Delay damages
- Consequential damages
- Liquidated damages
- Relocation costs
Some owners feel they can withhold payment for work they think is substandard or shoddy. Others withhold payment simply to nitpick, or refuse to pay contractors for work over which they had no control. For example, sometimes a separate contract between an owner and an architect or engineer is at the root of a payment dispute with a contractor.
Construction delays are another major source of collection disputes in both residential and commercial real estate. If an owner is significantly delayed from taking occupancy of a building due to delays that are the responsibility of the contractor, a damage claim may include consequential damages and liquidated damages as well as relocation costs.
