Common Types Of Construction Disputes That Arise
The most common construction disputes that happen are disputes over the scope of work that is to be completed between owners and general contractors.
1There are many buildings and other structures in Florida, and none of them built themselves. Each building required construction, and given the different aspects of any building project, they often require general contractors and subcontractors to complete various aspects of the project. Everyone involved must do their job to complete the project properly. Once their jobs are completed, they need to receive the compensation earned.
Signed contracts help ensure, that the work completed, by contractors and subcontractors allow them to be paid for their work. For example, signed contracts are formed between the owner and the general contractor and between general contractors and subcontractors. Besides, contracts have been broken and when that occurs, there can be disputes that transpire and thus construction litigation.

Additionally, there is a dispute when a new subcontractor is substituted in for another one or over construction defects during the construction of the building.
