Effective representation for homeowners
Need legal advice involving a dispute with a bad contractor? Book your consultation today.
When a homeowner hires a contractor for new home construction, home renovations or a remodeling project, you may have a legal claim against the contractor if they fail to meet the specifications of the contract.
One of the most common reasons for taking legal action against a contractor is defective construction work such as:
- Design deficiencies (e.g. roof not built to code)
- Material deficiencies (e.g. poor quality asphalt)
- Construction deficiencies (e.g. electrical problems)
- Subsurface deficiencies (i.e. soil conditions resulting in unstable foundation)
Most construction contracts include a guarantee of ‘reasonable workmanship.’ Many states have a ‘Right to Cure’ requirement which means homeowners must give a contractor an opportunity to repair construction defects before a lawsuit can be filed.
Wisconsin is not a ‘Right to Cure’ state, but there is a statute of limitations for construction defect lawsuits.
The property renovation lawyers at Niebler Pyzyk strategically employ important contractor notice requirements and consumer protection laws to benefit their homeowner clients.
Construction dispute mediation
Disputes can bring a construction project to a full stop, and construction lawsuits can take months to reach a resolution.
Mediation, arbitration and settlement negotiation are valuable tools for dispute resolution and can be time and cost-effective alternatives to litigation.
Our attorneys have experience representing developers, contractors and their clients in a wide array of construction disputes. We understand and are sensitive to the costs associated with litigating claims, and proceed always with the consideration of balancing the costs and benefits of litigation.
Our in-depth understanding of construction law and the legal concepts that control it will help you decide whether it makes economic sense to pursue a courtroom victory or seek an alternate resolution.
No matter what action you decide to take, reputable legal representation is essential for your success in or outside a courtroom. We’ll ask how you would define a successful outcome and help you find the best resolution to minimize expense and disruption while also helping move the construction project forward.
Avoiding construction disputes
In many cases, construction disputes over work quality, site conditions or communication errors stem from issues with the original construction contract.
Neither party signs a construction contract expecting a dispute halfway through the project. The very nature and scope of construction projects can result in complicated contracts that generate disputes once work is underway, especially when key information is absent, unclear or open to misinterpretation.
Our experienced attorneys can draft, review and negotiate effective residential and commercial construction contracts helping to avoid confusion, pitfalls, disputes and unexpected costs down the road. We also represent commercial clients during all phases of real estate financing for a wide variety of properties.
