Commercial real estate and development transactions can present many different challenges and have many different aspects to them. Sometimes these complexities can lead to disputes, such as contract disputes. When there has been a breach of contract by one of the parties, it is important to timely address and respond to the situation. In addition, sometimes contract breach situations can be resolved through negotiation, however, on other occasions, intervention through the court may be necessary to resolve the dispute so that parties can move forward with their business.
There can be a variety of different types of contract and business disputes, including disputes concerning construction defects. Major projects such as development and construction projects, can involve many parties including developers, corporations, architects, engineers, contractors, subcontractors and suppliers. This can amount to many contractual relationships that must be properly managed.
When a construction defects issue has been alleged, it may be against a variety of different parties and may be based on a breach of contract, breach of warranty, negligence or, in some circumstances, other legal reason. Construct defects can include faulty design issues, substandard workmanship, the construction of an unsafe structure or other types of construction defects. Construction defects can present health, safety and financial concerns, as well as others, for different parties to the transaction.
