California businesses that provide contracted services to clients often offer numerous options and can customize an agreement to meet a particular client’s needs. Construction litigation often occurs when disputes arise, especially those with regard to payment and collections. It is important to know what to do to resolve such issues in a timely manner.
Nonpayment causes stress and legal problems
When you’ve kept your end of the bargain, completing all agreed-upon work and services on time and are not getting paid, it’s understandable that you feel frustrated. Certain protection elements, such as bond remedies and liens, can help you make sure you get the money you’re entitled to for the work you did. You can protect your right to full payment.
Minimize payment risks from the start to avoid problems
The old saying about an ounce of prevention being worth a pound of cure is applicable to construction contracts, especially where payments are concerned. By using specific contract language, you can avoid many complications down the line. Incorporating clauses to stop notice, as well as other proactive measures, can reduce your risk for payment and collections disputes after you’ve completed a project.
