Construction

Construction Law is mostly derived from rules, regulations, and statutes that govern contractors and the projects they undertake. Contractors in Arizona must be licensed and bonded. Handymen handling small projects do not have to be licensed.

If you are a contractor and need legal guidance, Thornley Law Firm will review your contracts, provide legal help to avoid litigation, or provide general guidance.

Home Buyers should review the contract between themselves and the contractor they choose with an experienced attorney. Large projects require close scrutiny. Additionally, your contract should also describe warranties in detail. Express warranties set forth promises about the quality of workmanship the new owner should expect when the project is finished. The warranty should also provide clear direction for what happens when the new owner is not satisfied.

Thornley Law Firm will assist in reviewing your contract before you sign. In the contract drafting stage, both parties should be open to changes and accommodations to come to a point of agreement. Usually, simple modifications are all that is needed to work out small differences but having an attorney review the contract will ensure that you do not end up in a horrific situation. Building is stressful enough, you do not want to later find out that you missed or forgot to add and important aspect to the contract that you are now responsible for.
