Construction Attorneys for New Jersey Businesses
Construction law in New Jersey can be quite complex; this is why construction companies, developers and builders call upon the attorneys at Einhorn Harris Ascher Barbarito & Frost, PC to assist them with everything from negotiating building contracts to representing parties in legal disputes with regard to commercial construction projects. Disputes can arise at various stages of a building project including:
- The initial erection of a building;
- Ongoing construction;
- Conversion or alteration of an existing property; and
- When building an addition.
Our construction attorneys work with you and your community’s building inspection and zoning departments to assisting with the details of construction law permits, regulations, inspections and such. Our construction attorneys can also work with you regarding claims that the work was not performed in a skillful and workmanlike manner.
For a construction contractor working on a commercial property, getting paid for the work can be difficult under many circumstances. The New Jersey Construction Lien Law protects the right of a construction contractor to file a claim for a private lien, which is usually filed for work performed on commercial property, known as a Construction Lien Claim. This lien is an encumbrance on the ownership of property based upon the value of work performed or materials provided on a project. The lien prevents the sale or financing of loans on a property. The process of filing can be complicated due to the complex details regarding legal requirements. For example, there must be a written contract between the lien claimant and the customer (whether it be the owner, contractor or subcontractor).
We will also work with owners or general contractors when a sub-contraction files a construction lien claim. Business owners or contractors faced with a legal dispute or non-payment for work performed on a property should contact one of the experienced Einhorn Harris commercial litigation professionals to protect their lien rights by properly filing a lien or through the process of litigation.
