Different Types Of Business Disputes In Texas

Construction Law

Construction law disputes can be very complex and include various legal issues such as contract disputes, defective construction claims, payment disputes, liens, and delay claims, which must all be addressed to come to a successful resolution.

These disputes can arise between contractors and owners, contractors and subcontractors, and other parties involved in the construction process.

Construction law disputes can also involve zoning, building codes, and other construction project regulations.

A construction law dispute in Texas could be a contractor vs. property owner dispute over payment and work satisfaction.

These types of disputes may also involve issues related to property taxes, eminent domain, and other regulations that govern property ownership and use.

A dispute between a buyer and seller where one party claims the other failed to disclose defects or fulfill obligations outlined in the sales contract is an example of real estate litigation.

Landlord-Tenant Disputes

In Texas, disputes between landlords and tenants can include a variety of issues, such as contract disputes, eviction proceedings, disputes over property damages, and security deposits.

These conflicts can also involve housing codes, zoning regulations, and other laws governing rental properties.
