Construction Law & Litigation
Our attorneys are here to assist you in the construction process. That process starts with review and creation of the contract that will govern your rights during and after the project is completed. We will work with you to make sure the contract fits the needs of the project, the contractor and the property owner as well as protects certain rights you have under Florida’s construction laws.
Section 558, Florida Statutes governs construction defects in Florida. It requires the property owner give written notice of the claim to the potentially responsible party (contractor, subcontractor, etc.) before filing suit. It also provides an opportunity for settlement and gives the potentially responsible party the ability to offer to settle in the form of repairs or monetary payment prior to filing suit. The requirements of this statute can be confusing and potentially waived contractually. The attorneys at our office have the knowledge and experience to guide you through the construction defect process.
Section 713, Florida Statutescontrols construction liens in Florida. Our attorneys can assist you in establishing, enforcing and defending against construction liens. The requirements of the statute can be confusing and detrimental if not followed. Contact us today if you have questions or need help dealing with a construction lien.
