Expert Dispute Resolution

Construction litigation usually involves claims of construction defects or payment disputes. Many times, payment disputes arise from disputes over back charges; that is, when payment is being withheld from a contractor because it is alleged that they did not perform their work properly. Sometimes, contractors are simply having a difficult time getting paid for reasons that may not be readily apparent.

Mechanics Liens and Stop Notices

The law provides contractors with two very powerful tools to secure payment – mechanic’s liens and stop notices. Mechanic’s liens are liens against the property the contractor performed work on and can be foreclosed upon to obtain payment. Stop Notices allow a contractor to be paid directly by the construction lender. However, the procedures that must be followed and the law applicable to enforcing these rights can get complex at times. Thus, it is advisable to seek the counsel of an experience construction attorney when attempting to secure payments that are due to contractors.
