Providing Counsel in all Matters Construction
We are Houston’s Construction Law Attorneys
Texas Construction Law
The construction world is unique in many regards; construction projects can range from the remodeling of one’s kitchen to the construction of a high-rise apartment complex. Regardless of the project size, issues will almost inevitably arise. General contractors, subcontractors, owners, material providers, sureties, lenders and everything else in between must be familiar with the rules and regulations involved at every level in the construction industry, with particular attention to their respective position.
At Guerra | Days Law Group, our Houston construction attorneys understand the intricacies of Texas Construction law. Construction contracts are drafted daily and broken often. Disagreements between owners, general contractors, and subcontractors lead to legal disputes, halting production and jeopardizing assets. Whatever the issue may be, our firm’s experienced Houston construction attorneys can provide counsel in all construction related disputes.
The construction industry in Texas is governed and impacted by laws from several sources including:
- Federal laws and regulations including Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
- Texas state laws such as the Residential Construction liability act (RCLA) and the Deceptive Trade Practices Act (DTPA)
- Local city codes and ordinances
- Licensing requirements and regulations enacted by state agencies
- The Texas Constitution
- The Common Law
Most construction projects are governed by some form of contract or agreement. The contract typically specifies, among other things, the work to be done, the time frame and parameters for the project, cost, and expectations. The contract will also delineate the remedies available in the event of breach, delay, and other harm suffered by an injured party. Most importantly, the contract binds the parties to specific terms and conditions laid out in the agreement.
