Areas of Contract Law
When it comes to contract law in Florida, it can be broken down into two main components. The first component is Preparation and Negotiation, and the second is Litigation. If you are unsure how handle contracts, or feel you need help from a professional, our Crestview contracts lawyers can help explain what you need to know.
First, you need to deal with preparation and negotiation. This has to do with what will be outlined within the contract itself. Things such as price, time, permits and zoning, quality of materials, workmanship, and liens should all be discussed within the contract. These terms can be negotiated, but it is important that expectations are fair and that all of the details are hammered out before work has begun. You will need to know not only what is expected of you, but also how to resolve disputes.
The next this needing addressed is what happens if the terms of the contract are not met. This is where litigation comes into play. Crestview contracts attorneys will be able to represent you in a court of law, if things need to escalate that far. They will help outline what areas of the contract were not met, and defend you if the other party claims that you did not meet the contracted obligations presented to you. Our experienced contracts lawyers will seek restitution for any damages that have occurred and will help you understand Florida law when it comes to contracts.
Liens and Lien Rights
A lien occurs when a private property owner has not compensated the person, or company, that performed contractual work for them, for the work, labor, or materials that were used for the project. It is a claim for payment and is made against the property owner. The property could be sold against the owners will, in order to pay for the work that was done, which is a worst-case scenario. Crestview construction liens lawyers can help make sure that does not happen.
Any contractor, subcontractor, or materials provider can put a lien against a property, if they have not been compensated for their work, labor, or materials. This lien can only be for the amount that they are owed. If you are threatened with a lien, or need to put a lien on someone else, contact the Crestview construction liens attorneys at ASG Legal.
