Construction law is relevant to everyone. In response to shortages of affordable housing in cities across the U.S., some cities are looking for new ways to increase access to affordable housing. One solution that is gaining popularity is the option for homeowners to build accessory dwelling units on their property, which are attached or freestanding complete residences that can be rented out.
Construction law and insurance law need to be considered in the wake of Hurricane Irma. Many homeowners feel pressed to contract for home repairs quickly. Stop, think and take steps to protect your self and your rights.
The recent hurricane that swept through Florida left in its wake millions of people without power; people were stranded in flooded, destroyed homes; some are dealing with serious injuries and missing loved ones.
Buying a new home is an exciting -- and sometimes overwhelming -- event. For many people, it is the most significant transaction of their lives. In all the excitement, it can be easy to make some missteps or fail to see some red flags that could jeopardize your home and your rights as a homeowner.
It seems reasonable that the term "construction law" might strike many Floridians and other Americans across the country as being broad and open-ended.
