"Could three of the four largest cities be that wrong?" asks Tom Clark of the Metro Denver Economic Development Corp., referring to Colorado cities that have passed (or, like Denver, are working to pass) their own ordinances on construction defects reform. They have done so, Clark argues, because state legislators have repeatedly failed to pass statewide reform.
In Colorado, and everywhere else in the United States, businesses are based on contracts signed by those people or business entities involved. By signing the contract, signees agree to whatever is written in the contract. Failure to comply with the contract can result in disputes that often end in litigation. Contract disputes often arise when business partners fail to perform their duties or when employees, for example, fail to follow the rules and regulations written in their contracts.
Not every business runs smoothly, at least not all the time. Like owners elsewhere, businesspeople in Colorado often face challenges that can affect their businesses' long-term health. Contract disputes are one of the toughest because their resolution is often hard to forecast. To avoid this type of business dispute, business owners can follow a few guidelines.
In Colorado, and everywhere else in the United States, business contracts are put in place to ensure fair business practices between two or more business entities. The contract outlines the duties and responsibilities of the business partners. Business contracts may be in the form of a sales contract, real estate contract, construction management contract, development contract or contract for builders. Business owners understand that failure to follow what is written in the contract can result in disputes.
When people want to remodel their home, they usually turn to contractors or builders. Here in Denver, Colorado, the relationship between a home owner and contractors is sealed by a contract that outlines the responsibilities of the contractors -- the length of time required to finish as well as the total costs. However, not all home repair or remodeling run smoothly. And when a home owner is not happy with the results, the owner often sues the contractors.
In Colorado and anywhere in the United States, readers know that a contract is made when two people or entities decide to enter a business agreement. Before a business contract is signed, each party thoroughly studies the contract and requests revisions if needed. Both parties know that once the contract is signed, they must abide by what is written on the contract. Failure to do so can result in business litigation, which can be difficult to settle.
Since 2012, the construction industry in Colorado has been on an upswing following the economic downturn that hurt the country starting in 2008. More builders have had the opportunity to meet the needs of the state's population. Whenever Coloradans build or remodel houses or businesses, they turn to contractors who handle the construction or repairs needed.
Business dispute can take many forms, from employee discrimination lawsuits to antitrust litigation. While the scope of business law is truly unlimited, one of the most common types of business-related disputes that arise involves contracts. Contract disputes, from allegations of breach to violations of licensing agreements, can have a significant financial impact on businesses. That is why it is important that Colorado companies address these matters aggressively and immediately.
