Defects, lack of pay can lead to construction litigation

In any type of relationship, disputes are common. Even if companies create contracts in order to outline the nature of the business relationship, one or more parties may not adhere to the terms of the agreement. If this happens, it is possible for construction litigation to take place in order to resolve the issues that result.

Florida readers may be interested in a dispute currently underway in a neighboring state. According to reports, a city had contracted with a construction company to build a new city hall complex. Though the project has been completed, the city believes that construction defects have caused serious issues with the structures, and the construction company claims that the city will not pay the remainder of its owed compensation, which totals approximately $2.6 million.

The construction company has filed a lawsuit against the city for pay, but the city countersued, claiming the company breached the contract. Both parties apparently agree on some issues with the construction of the complex, but the construction company claims that the city will not let it work to fix the issues. The city indicated that it does not trust the company to make the repairs.

Dissatisfaction with construction projects can cause many issues. As this case shows, construction litigation could easily occur, especially if both sides find issue with the project or contract. If Florida businesspeople find themselves caught up in such legal issues, it is important that they understand their legal options for handling the situation as best as possible. Working with attorneys experienced in this type of law is wise.
