Counts Law Firm real estate construction attorneys advise and represent Los Angeles County homeowners, investors, contractors, architects, and material suppliers in construction disputes.
A construction agreement between a property owner and a builder/contractor contains the scope of work for new construction building, remodeling, or repairing real property. The breach of a construction contract, whether by the property owner or the contractor, can be a stressful and expensive life experience. Although builders generally follow the rules on a construction project, it entails risk. Sometimes property owners encounter unlicensed contractors or subcontractors, unapproved work or change orders, substandard work, abandoned projects, or payment collections disputes. Sometimes, the contractor, without good real estate construction counsel, improperly records mechanics liens that cloud title in bad-faith for leverage over the property owner.
When real property owners are left with a defective foundation, floors, walls, roof, windows, plumbing, electrical, or other poor workmanship, an incomplete job, or mechanics lien, they need help from a skilled real estate construction litigation attorney.
Conversely, when contractors have not been paid for construction work, they need help from an attorney skilled in real estate construction collections and mechanics liens. A firm that understands the preparation, timing, and enforcement of mechanics liens after a payment dispute and/or quality of work complaint. A firm that can resolve a mechanics lien through an agreement to correct and complete any defects in exchange for a collections payment.
