Defining the different types of construction delays

When managing construction projects in Raleigh, you know that ensuring that all components are completed when they need to be can be a difficult balancing act. A delay in the delivery of service from any of your contracted providers can throw your entire timeline off. Several others in your position who have experienced such delays have come to us here at the Triangle Law Group wondering if it is possible to seek damages to recoup their losses. To understand whether that is indeed a possibility, you must first be familiar with the types of delays recognized as being associated with the construction industry. 

What happens to my security deposit?

When you become a tenant in North Carolina, chances are you will have to budget in a security deposit to hand over to your new landlord. However, this money does not simply go into the landlord's pocket to be used for whatever he or she deems necessary. In fact, as the tenant, you will know exactly where that deposit is going and how -- if at all -- it will be spent. 

Woman questions why she must pay rent on damaged apartment

One of the advantages to renting in Raleigh is that one is not burdened with the responsibilities that come with homeownership. If and when damage occurs to a property, it is the responsibility of the owner to address it, not any tenants that may occupy it. However, people typically tend to assign priority to tasks that affect them directly, and thus may look for reasons to justify putting off other matters. A property owner may rush to correct any issues that affect the home or building he or she lives or works in, while dealing with problems at other properties in a less timely manner. Yet in such a scenario, can an owner then expect tenants to still be obliged to honor a lease agreement? 

Is subletting a good idea?

If you are leasing a house or apartment in North Carolina and your company transfers you halfway across the country prior to the end of your lease, subletting your residence may be a good way to avoid losing your security deposit and possibly having to pay additional penalties for breaking your lease. However, it also can be fraught with dangers if you fail to do it properly.

Do I have to pay my subcontractor?

Running your own contracting business in North Carolina is both exhilarating and rewarding. You deal with many people who have a variety of skills, and you work together to see a project to its completion. However, you probably can't remember a project where there hasn't been some problem. Whether a minor setback or a major conflict, as the contractor, it is your responsibility to resolve the issue and keep the project on schedule.
