For landlords, there are a plethora of ways that tenants can become difficult. Triangle Law Group knows firsthand how stressful and even infuriating this can be for landlords in Raleigh, and in cities all across the state of North Carolina. Even though these situations can be very challenging, it is pivotal for landlords to do their best to work through the situation with a level head and a solid understanding of their legal rights. If your tenant has become difficult, or is violating the terms of your rental contract, you should not feel like you have no choice but to allow them to step on your toes.
As contractor bidding on a construction project in North Carolina, you may expect many parties to be involved if you win the bid, including the owner, design team and subcontractors. Identifying exactly what each is responsible for allows you to avoid liability when someone else is at fault. This is where the construction contract comes in, and we at Triangle Law Group are skilled at negotiating these documents so that terms and clauses do not damage a client’s reputation and bottom line.
Living in a North Carolina rental home, you have limited options regarding maintenance and renovations. However, when it comes to paint, you have more than condition and color to consider. If your home was built before 1978, lead could be an issue.
Previously, we began looking at the role mechanic's liens can play in allowing contractors to secure payment for work performed on real property under a valid contract with the owner of real property. The most important issue for any contractor or subcontractor who remains unpaid for work performed on a property is the relief available to them when the lien is enforced.
Mechanic's liens are an important tool for contractors providing services to property owners. Construction projects can get messy when parties end up disagreeing on their mutual obligations, and the ability to file a mechanic's lien ensures contractors and subcontractors are able to secure payment for services when the property owner refuses to cooperate.
As your business grows, you are probably dealing with more entities each year. In addition to customers, you have new suppliers, vendors and subcontractors who depend on you to deliver your services in a timely manner. Maybe one of your goals as a business owner was to maintain a casual, approachable image, and you have managed this by keeping your word and accepting the word of others.
