Construction disputes often involve a number of parties, each of whom occupy different positions, which are accompanied by different rights and obligations. Illinois’ construction laws are very nuanced, providing what often amounts to hyper-technical rights and obligations of property owners, developers, lenders, general contractors, subcontractors, laborers and material suppliers, depending on the specific scenario.
Claims in construction disputes often sound in breach of contract and foreclosure of mechanic’s liens. With respect to mechanic’s liens, general contractors and subcontractors need to make sure that they timely file the liens with the correct information necessary to protect their rights. Likewise, owners and lenders need to understand the filing requirements for mechanic’s liens, so they can be contested when necessary.
