I have been in business for 25 years and have spent tens of thousands hiring attorneys over the years. But I have found an attorney that is, in my opinion, one of the best attorneys in terms of client interaction knowledge, experience and motivation to help his clients get results. I highly recommend Joseph Hughes to anyone that needs a dedicated hard working attorney. I had a previous attorney in a case that had me deal with just his assistant. After paying him and not getting results... I hired Joseph. he sat down with me reviewed everything did follow-ups and got a favorable result in a short period of time. - Pat

South Florida Breach Of Construction Contracts

How Can I Recover Compensation After A Breach Of My South Florida Construction Contract?

If you’ve hired a contractor to help you construct a new house or office in South Florida, there’s a risk that the contracting company you work with may cause damage to existing construction or fail to complete the project according to the terms of the agreement. A South Florida Real Estate Litigation Attorney can help you understand your agreement and ensure that you and your interests are fully protected.

Numerous problems may occur during a building project. The contractor may declare bankruptcy, or they may have simply failed to finish a project due to negligence. Whatever the case may be, here’s what you need to know about your options for obtaining compensation in a South Florida breach of contract case.

Initial Responses to Breach of Contract 

If the construction contract stipulates that a particular amount of work will be completed before payment is made, collecting reimbursement might be as straightforward as refusing to make subsequent deposits until the requirements have been met. 

Working with a South Florida Real Estate Litigation Attorney is a good way to guarantee that you file any and all responses to a breach of contract in a timely and efficient manner consistent with Florida laws. Contact J. Hughes today.

However, whether or not you can do this is contingent upon the contract’s language. Other options for responding to a breach of contract may also be included in the wording of the agreement itself. 

Mediation Options In South Florida Construction Contracts

Mediating a dispute between a business or homeowner and a building contractor might allow the parties to address the matters outside of the courtroom and pursue a mutually agreeable settlement. This system allows both sides to collaborate in dispute resolution. 

In many cases, mediation is a mutually beneficial approach that can save both participants money on legal expenses and time invested in preparing for court proceedings.

Arbitration Options 

Using an arbitrator to resolve a construction dispute might be useful if both parties are prepared to submit to an adjudicating authority. Arbitration, like mediation, can help save time and expenses. 

Because both parties agree to delegate decision-making to an arbiter, the benefits may be advantageous for both parties. However, some people may prefer not to transfer power over dispute decisions to a third party.
