At the office of Dana J. Watts, Attorney at Law, we understand that there are many people involved and almost any construction project going on these days in Southwest Florida. Contractors, subcontractors, engineers, construction workers, site managers and architects all have a role to play in improving the infrastructure of our communities.
When subcontractors are hired to work on a job in Florida, they are often given a range of flexibility in which to complete their work with little to no supervision from the job's overseer. However, making sure that these individuals and companies are upholding their portion of the agreement and are completing high-quality work within the parameters that have been set, is an object that is best achieved with the implementation of a signed contract.
If you are thinking about developing or renovating real estate property in Florida, it’s a good idea to do some research on the construction industry. One good place to start is common causes of construction disputes.
Contractors in Florida rely on their contracts to maintain and further their business. When the other party fails to fulfill the terms of the contract, it can cause considerable financial difficulties.
If you have been in business for a while, you may be well aware that developing trustworthy relationships with other like-minded individuals and companies takes time and energy. Sustaining the relationships you have with other industry professionals in Florida is critical to your ability to give your customers a product or service that you stand by and are proud to provide. In construction, you may wonder if working with subcontractors requires the same type of relationship commitment given they will be gone once their portion of the project is complete.
