It’s important for parties entering into any significant economic transaction to have written contracts. This is especially true for construction projects which are, by their nature, complicated. Due to the high value sums involved in construction contracts and the assets they are designed to produce at the end of projects, a well-written contract is essential, particularly to ensure disputes can be dealt with effectively and in accordance with known and defined parameters. One of the biggest problems encountered with non-written contracts is that each party’s respective memory of the agreement changes over time, especially if a dispute arises.
Construction advice is often needed on property transactions too where elements of construction or development are involved and we provide a full property support service for this purpose.
