Contractor Licensing Issues
In Florida, it is a serious offense to contract without a license. The number of ways it can get you into a legal bind is endless. The risks of operating without a license greatly outweigh the costs of getting a contractor license.
Benson Mucci & Weiss will help you with obtaining either a certified or registered license. We can also help you with the legal paperwork required to obtain a Division I or Division II certification.
Breach of Contract Claims
This term is an often abused term in construction law. A breach of contract is when someone fails to meet their contractual obligations. If they failed to do - or not do something they were required to, then a breach of contract has occurred.
Contract Review and Analysis
We will review and analyze your construction contracts and subcontracts to ensure you are protected. Our review will help you avoid one-sided and unfair contract clauses that are unfair to your business. This will help ensure your project ends up not only successful but profitable.
Your company can be held legally liable in the case of a construction defect. Whether you have an express or implied warranty, a legal case can be complex. We understand the strict guidelines and procedures regarding warranty claims and we can help you navigate this area.
Mediation and Arbitration
Many construction contracts have a provision for dispute resolution. This could require mediation prior to arbitration or litigation. This is preferable as the latter in relation to lost time from work in court or having to pay a penalty. No matter the situation, we will be with you every step of the way to fight for your best interest.
Payment and Collection Matters
It is more common than not for a contractor to not get paid on time. We are very familiar with Florida’s “Prompt Payment Act” and its varied intricacies. It’s very hard to maintain cash flow and working capital when on average only 10% of your clients pay on time. We are here to help you and expedite the process so you can get back to work without worrying about payroll and expenses.
