Guest Post on Musings on Avoiding Residential Construction Disputes

A big thanks to Christopher Hill (@constructionlaw) for inviting me to guest post on his Construction Law Musings blog for the fourth time. The post discussed how to "Prepare For and Avoid Residential Construction Disputes," and looked at the issue from the perspective of both the homeowner and the residential contractor.  Here is a tease:
Residential construction disputes come in all shapes and sizes, but very typically have one thing in common: they can get very nasty. This is understandable, especially in today's economy. The homeowner is spending hard-earned money on something very personal to them, their home. They want it done right. The contractor is working on really tight margins, and with a diligent client. These disputes can become frustrating legal battles that costs thousands of dollars. And since it's such a hot topic politically (there is lots of pressure for legislatures to protect against construction fraud), many states have layers of consumer protection laws that are consequential to both the residential contractor and the homeowner.
