Real estate litigation: Disputes often arise during construction

Michigan residential building projects are typically a time full of excitement and anticipation. However, any number of things can go wrong, and homeowners are often disillusioned when building projects extend far beyond the expected occupancy dates. It is not uncommon for legal complications to arise, and in many cases, real estate litigation may be the only way to resolve such issues.

Regardless of whether the project management is handled by the property owner or an appointed person, careful planning is required. Aspects that will determine a successful build include a realistic timeline and effective budget management. To achieve this, close attention will have to be paid to the specifications of required materials, the performance of subcontractors and compliance with municipal construction codes. One of the principal concerns is a properly drafted contract.

When there are any deviations from contractual provisions related to design, defects in construction, exceeding prescribed costs and/or other issues, time-consuming and costly litigation may result. For this reason, it is vital for the homeowner to rely upon the services of an experienced real estate attorney. A lawyer can provide guidance and support throughout the process, from the planning stage, drafting of contracts and resolving issues that may arise.

Michigan residents may find comfort in knowing that the real estate litigation lawyers at Galloway and Collens, PLLC, in Huntington Woods know that the stakes are high. With more than 40 years of experience in property development and real estate litigation, we can act promptly to resolve legal issues, often with minimal delay in the construction project. While some disputes can be settled out of court through mediation or other methods of dispute resolution, our experience as construction litigators can also help to resolve more complicated legal matters.
