IDAHO CONSTRUCTION LITIGATION
FAILURE TO PAY
If you are a contractor, developer or commercial landlord owner, you may be concerned about competitors seeking to undermine your relationships with general contractors and owners. You may be worried about getting paid for the work you are doing. You may be getting sued for not getting a job done on time even though it rained for three straight weeks. If that’s the case, we urge you to contact us to assist you.
WHAT EXACTLY CONSTITUTES A BREACH OF CONTRACT?
Though contractual agreements vary widely in their nature and purpose, their basic goal is the provision of money, goods, actions, services, or promised refrain from action by one party to another. These items of value are called “consideration” in legal terms, and without them, a contract would not exist.
Perhaps a vendor has failed to meet an important deadline. Or maybe an employee has caused detriment to your company by breach of an employment contract or non-disclosure / non-compete agreement. From general contract disputes to tortious interference with a contract, your attorney can fight for your legally enforceable rights and best interests while you focus on moving your company forward.
UNFAIR COMPETITIVE PRACTICES
If you have a contract with an owner or general contractor to perform services, a competitor may seek to get the owner or general contractor to breach the contract with you. This can cause you considerable loss of work and income. You may sue for interference with contractual relations.
INTERFERE WITH PROSPECTIVE BUSINESS
Similarly, if you have an ongoing relationship with a general contractor, you have reason to expect much future income from this relationship. If another seeks to poison your relationship by spreading lies about you to the general contractor, you may file claim for interference with prospective business advantage.
FILING A LIEN
Your biggest problem may be just getting paid for what you do. Where the general contractor does not pay you, you may file a mechanics’ lien. This puts the owner on notice that the general contractor may be pocketing the money. Furthermore, if you do not then get paid, you may foreclose against the whole project. The matter will then land in court where the judge will sort matters out and order your fee paid.
