Construction Law

Construction law covers a wide variety of issues related to the building industry, including the regulation and licensing of contractors, the inspection of construction projects, and the settling of construction disputes should they arise. Construction law will govern any significant work done on a residence. A homeowner considering using a contractor to add an extension to their home, remodel the kitchen, or any other major construction project, should consult a construction attorney in order to fully understand their rights and obligations before they sign a construction agreement.
