Legal Cases Involving Contractors Commonly Arise For Various Concerns Including Failure of Payment or Failure to Perform

Contractor Agreement Document Disputes between property owners and those hired to perform project work, whether as construction or renovation or maintenance projects are frequently coming before the courts.  In some courts, such as the Small Claims Court, cases involving contractors and homeowners are quite prevalent.  Common allegations including poorly done work or a failure to perform as agreed (and often without a written agreement).

These disputes can be very challenging to litigate.  Even seasoned legal professionals may find these cases difficult  These cases are often made challenging and troublesome due to the volume of evidence usually involved, the need for independent expert witnesses to testify to what is proper or improper workmanship and thus whether trade standards or the contractual specifications for the project were met, among other things.

Additionally, construction law disputes can often extend into legal issues beyond defective workmanship whether as breach of contract or negligence or both whereas issues including unjust enrichment, Consumer Protection, among other things, may be involved.  For more on construction law concerns, see the topics listed below:
