Construction is booming in Miami and across South Florida. It seems that new high-end residential and commercial projects are started every day, all with price tags running into the millions (or tens and hundreds of millions) of dollars. Big projects, however, have the potential to create complex construction disputes that can cost a developer, builder, or contractor a lot of time and money.
When you are involved in a major construction project, there are a lot of moving parts that make it, unfortunately, quite easy for disputes to arise. Even before the project gets off the ground, an engineer, surveyor or architect could make a mistake that results in costly delays or dangerous defects. In some cases, the mistakes may even rise to the level of professional malpractice.
Any experienced developer knows that once things get underway, any number of things can go wrong. A subcontractor may get a higher bid from a competing project and walk off or delay the job. Or worse, shoddy workmanship can mean completing – and paying for – the same work more than once. Once the project is completed, the business of satisfying and removing any existing mechanic’s liens can be tedious and time-consuming, especially if the subcontractors are not forthcoming with the lien releases.
