The disputes between a property owner and those hired to perform project work, whether as construction or renovation or maintenance projects, frequently end up in court. In some courts, such as the Small Claims Court, with a $35,000 limit per Plaintiff, defective workmanship cases are among some of the most common. Common allegations include defective workmanship or incomplete work as a failure to perform as agreed.
Construction Law Cases Include:
Involves poor work or alleged failure to perform.
Includes resulting interior water damage.
Involves design/install and maintenance issues.
Involves failures resulting in water damage.
Includes defects by unlicensed contractors.
Involves allegations of faulty tree work.
Construction law cases can be very challenging to litigate due to the extent of laws invollves as well as the extent of evidence usually involved and the need for independent witnesses to inspect and provide expert reports as to what constitutes as proper workmanship and thus whether the trade standards or the contractual specifications for the project were met, valuation of the portion of work properly completed, among other things; and accordingly, even the seasoned legal professional may find construction law cases as burdensome to litigate. These cases are often extra challenging and troublesome due to the conduct of the parties involved and breach of various legal duties occuring prior to the obtaining legal advice.
Additionally, litigation arising from construction or renovation disputes often extends into legal issues beyond the defective workmanship issues and include legal concerns such as unjust enrichment, consumer protection laws, failures to mitigate, among other concerns.
