In Bakersfield and throughout California, there seems to be an endless number of construction projects that are being planned, are in their initial stages, are beginning to look like more than an exoskeleton of steel, wood or concrete, or are close to being completed. With that, there is no doubt that permits were acquired for real estate land use, contracts were formulated, and the construction project was planned from long before it got underway. So too were there attorneys who helped the contractor and the developer to prepare for the long road ahead.
Construction and real estate is not a simple matter of buying the property for personal or business use and starting to build. There are a great many factors that must be taken into account and, if they are missed, will stick out like the failure to dot an "I" or cross a "T" on the written page. Only with a construction project, it is not a simple matter of correcting the mistake with the slash of a pen or pencil. Real estate and construction mistakes can cost money and time.
Whether the project is simple, complicated or there is litigation ongoing, legal help is a must. There are many different intricacies that go into a construction project such as the repairing of defects to negotiating or going to court to settle a construction dispute. Having a cogent plan to handle these issues is imperative and requires legal help. Perhaps the case can be settled through negotiation. Or maybe it is a complex construction dispute that might be required to go to court for a civil case. Regardless, a lawyer makes all the difference.
People who are working on commercial real estate for their business or are formulating a blueprint for their dream home need legal assistance that knows its way around the maze-like structure of real estate and construction. It is vital. If the project is underway or even completed, it is still wise to have an attorney. At any time, an attorney can help and that is the first call that should be made.
