CLEAR CONTRACTS WITH POWERFUL REMEDIES
Construction usually begins with a contract. This is everyone’s first chance to make sure everyone agrees on what is to be done and how risk is going to be allocated. The property owner has to put trust in the contractor to do a good job, and the contractor often has to trust that the property owner is going to pay. It is important that the contract contain effective remedies that allow you avoid a dispute where possible and win a dispute if it arises. A good contract looks ahead to what could go wrong and protects you when it does.
MECHANIC’S LIENS AND COLLECTION
Contractors and subcontractors can easily become victims of their own good customer service by missing Colorado’s short deadlines to notice and record mechanic’s liens. The mechanic’s lien is a very powerful tool. If you moved quickly, we can help you perfect these liens. Even if you have missed the deadline, you may still have other options to collect as well including options that can still attach to the real property you worked on.
CONSTRUCTION DEFECT NOTICE AND DISPUTE RESOLUTION
In a perfect world, construction projects would go off without a hitch. In the real world, especially in the case of very complicated projects with many moving parts, things sometimes go wrong. When they do, there are very specific rules in Colorado about how to go about notifying those involved and fixing the problem. The Firm can help explain and navigate these requirements, finding resolution where possible and preparing for litigation where it is not.
