Contract Law Attorneys
The property owner and contractor are responsible for protecting their rights as they enter into a contract to build or improve real property. For now, in Pennsylvania, the law heavily protects contractors and sub-contractors. The law gives the subcontractor special protections to ensure that he gest paid. Under the law, a subcontractor can get a lien (a mechanic's lien) against the real property even if the property owner has paid the paid the contractor fully.

Damage to Property - Mold, Water Leaks, Incomplete Work.
Our firm has successfully represented both contractors and home owners involved in disputes over mold, incomplete work, change orders, water damage, and other matters in Western Pennsylvania involving construction law. Knowing your rights sooner rather than later is the best way to fully protect your rights as you enter into an agreement or contemplate how you will initiate or defend against a claim involving home improvement or construction.

Liens - Property Owners - Use Caution.
If, for example, you pay a general contractor $50,000 to build an addition onto your home, what happens if the contractor never pays his subcontractors for the work they did? Your property can get exposed to a mechanic's lien if you are not careful. You need good legal advice early at the time your home improvement agreement is drafted. Unless you address this issue in your contract with the general contractor, you may have to pay twice for the same work! Fortunately, there are ways to protect your important rights.

Get Good Adice - Early.
You should have a lawyer review your agreement for major work to your business or residence. Answers are need for the following: Should bond be posted? Should the contract be performed in installments? What assurances do you have that the other side will perform on the agreement as planned? It always makes sense to have an attorney review your agreement. Our fees to review (or re-draft) an agreement are reasonable and we can potentially save you thousands (or tens of thousands) of dollars.
