Construction defects can lead to serious liability issues for the parties involved. A contractor who performs poor quality work on a commercial or residential property may be liable for damages the property owner or management company suffered as a result. Our Kansas law firm has the knowledge and experience in handling an extensive variety of construction defect claims. We have represented both defendants and plaintiffs with commercial and residential claims.
In many instances, a mechanics lien is the best tool for guarding against non-payment and related issues with customers. Many construction contracting companies see a lien as something to file when the customer doesn't pay for services rendered, and after filing the matter will take care of itself. A property owner will be unable to transfer ownership interests in the property until the lien is satisfied.
Businesses engaged in contracts with other companies sometimes have a dispute over the terms or performance of a contract provision. There are certain types of contract provisions that are prohibited in the state, and as such, hold no legal weight if they appear in a construction contract.
Homeowners in Kansas who notice that their home has a construction defect may be able to seek some financial compensation. In order to file a successful claim, the homeowner must prove that there is a real construction error in their home within the statute of limitations. To do this, the homeowner needs to obtain validation that the defect exists from a qualified expert.
In some way, shape or form, all Kansas businesses rely on contracts to provide or receive goods and services. While these contracts can be beneficial to all of the parties involved, there is always the possibility that one or more parties may not deliver on their promises.
