Understanding Construction Law
Construction law refers to the rules and regulations surrounding the planning, design, and construction of buildings and structures. One set of examples includes building codes, which ensure that a building’s plumbing, electrical, and other fittings are installed properly. These laws hold contractors accountable for catastrophic collapses or other failures.
Come to us for guidance during any phase of the construction process. We work with contractors, suppliers, and individuals on a variety of legal matters.
Contract Negotiations and Disputes
From general contracts to subcontracts to supplier agreements, contracts are some of construction law’s biggest focuses. They often contain complicated issues such as pay-if-paid and pay-when-paid clauses. At Levy & Zeewy, LLC, we’re well versed in contract jargon and are prepared to guide you through the negotiation process.
If another party isn’t holding up their end of the bargain, you deserve a fair resolution. Should a contract dispute arise, we’ll be here to fight on your behalf. We’ll work with you to determine the best path forward, whether it includes mediation, arbitration, or litigation.
As a construction professional, you know it’s one thing to get the job and another to be paid on time and in full for your work. It’s not uncommon for a customer to receive the goods or services they requested, never complain about quality, but then go radio silent once you send the invoice.
When you need legal assistance collecting the payment you deserve, contact our skilled team of attorneys. We represent contractors, subcontractors, materials suppliers, and design professionals in Atlanta, Georgia, seeking compensation for their work.
Bonds and Stop Notices
Oftentimes in cases of non-payment claims, real property can be used to guarantee a construction professional’s work. However, construction and engineering work done for government agencies—such as bridges, roads, and public buildings—cannot be used for such a reason. If you haven’t received payment for a public- or government-contracted job, you still have legal options.
Prior to a public project, government agencies usually require that a general contractor provide a surety bond, which holds the funds in trust until the project is completed. This guarantees that all the necessary payments in a project will be made. Our job as your legal partners is to see that these funds are reclaimed upon project completion. We’ll be here to help you cut through the red tape involved in government construction projects.
A stop notice is a legal notice given for the purpose of withholding, intercepting, or freezing funds that have not yet been paid on a construction project in an attempt to secure payment. It requires the owner, public body, or construction fund holder to withhold in trust an amount equivalent to the amount owed plus an extra percentage for legal fees. The processes and timing needed to file a stop notice differ between contractors and subcontractors. At Levy & Zeewy, LLC, we’re prepared to guide you through whichever situation applies to you.
We also consult clients in their title disputes, which typically involve a disagreement between landowners over who owns a piece of property. An example would be if a homeowner wants to add an addition to their house, but their neighbor claims the addition would cross the boundary line onto their property.
If you’re experiencing a similar situation, get in touch with us in our Atlanta office. We’ll work with you to seek a quick and favorable outcome for your legal issue.
