Construction law is sometimes simple and at other times complex. Professionals need answers which are pithy and straightforward but also legally rigorous.
A number of questions come up time and again. They range in ******* from extensions of time, liquidated damages and loss and/or expense to issues of practical completion, defects, valuation, certificates and payment, architects instructions, adjudication and fees. Some questions are relatively simple, such as what date should be put on a contract?, but there are implications to even the simplest questions. More elaborate ones might involve whether the contractor is entitled to take possession of a section of the work even though it is the contractors fault that possession is not practicable.
