Contract Preparation, Negotiation, and Litigation
When it comes to contract law in Florida, it can be broken down into two main components. These are Preparation and Negotiation, and Litigation. If you are unsure how handle contracts, or feel you need help from a professional, Miramar Beach 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 like price, time, permits and zoning, quality of materials, workmanship, and liens should all be discussed in the contract. These terms can be negotiated, but it is important that expectations are fair, and that all 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.
Next is what happens if the terms of the contract are not met. This is where litigation comes into play. Miramar Beach 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. They will help seek restitution for any damages that have occurred, and will help you understand Florida law when it comes to contracts.
How Liens and Lien Rights Work
A lien occurs when a private property owner has not compensated the people that did contractual work for them for the work, labor, or materials that they used for the project. It is a claim for payment, and is made against the property you own. Your property could be sold against your will, in order to pay for the work that you had done, which is a worst-case scenario. Miramar Beach construction liens lawyers can help make sure that does not happen.
Any contractor, subcontractor, or materials provider can put a lien against your 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 Miramar Beach construction liens attorneys at ASG Legal.
