Surety bonds can serve a valuable purpose

As many contractors in Kansas have already learned, purchasing a surety bond is a requirement for most publicly contracted construction projects. It is a means for inoculating the project against the any vagaries and failures related to its contractors, and it is so effective at ensuring the completion of the project as outlined in the contract that an increasing number of private construction projects require a surety bond too.

The four types of construction defects

Poor construction of homes and commercial buildings in Kansas could end up causing significant problems for owners and property management companies. Some of the most expensive and most common construction defects involve water intrusion, issues with structural integrity and both mechanical and electrical problems. These types of defects typically fall into one of four categories: construction deficiencies, material deficiencies, design deficiencies and subsurface deficiencies.

Breach of sales contracts in Kansas

Many Kansas companies are in the business of selling goods. As a matter of business practice, these sellers often enter into sales contracts with buyers, agreeing to provide specified items to the buyers by a date certain. These contracts are more than just ordinary business documents, however. Sales contracts are legal documents, and as such, violating them can lead to significant consequences.

What types of zoning laws are there?

When a Kansas business is considering a commercial real estate transaction to either purchase a property or lease it for business purposes, it is vitally important for the business to consider any land use restrictions that may be in place due to zoning laws. Depending on the area in which the property is located, different types of zoning may exist that impact the property's allowable uses.

How to revise zoning orders in Kansas

Each city and municipality has its own set of zoning orders. If an individual wishes to change a particular zoning order, whether it is for establishing a new business venture using an existing property or for the construction of a commercial real estate development, he or she must go through a certain process with the city's officials.

Our condo association was faced with monumental construction issues thanks to the original developer of our complex. We were cash poor and in no position to get legal representation without a contingency fee arrangement. Luckily for us, Scott Long and Burke Robinson were willing to take us on as clients. Their work ethic, professionalism and knowledge of condominium construction served our association very well. Any association would be well served in hiring these gentlemen to represent them.
