Summary

Summary

Here you'll find easy-to-read, paragraphed-sized samples of how the courts have viewed common areas of disagreement -- and litigation -- in the building industry. You'll read about legal problems that real builders have faced, and how the court ruled. This book will tell you what you need to know about contracts, torts, fraud, misrepresentation, warranty and strict liability, construction defects, indemnity, insurance, mechanics liens, bonds and bonding, statutes of limitation, arbitration, and more. These are simplified examples that illustrate not necessarily who is right and who is wrong - but who the law has sided with.
