New Home Legal Plan

Attorney in Middle Tennessee Has Prior Contractor Experience

When a client comes to me with problems concerning their newly constructed custom home their options are usually limited and litigation emerges as the most likely result. Litigation can be expensive and may not remedy the client's primary objective, which is having a soundly built home. Utilizing my services before you sign a contract to build a custom home may avoid many potential problems. With experience as a full-time general contractor for residential and commercial buildings, I have the skills and knowledge to guide you through the process of building a new home. For this reason, I offer a flat-rate package for legal representation and assistance to guide clients through the legal aspects of building a custom home from start to finish.

Building a house is often one of the largest investments you will ever make, and because so much of your family's time, resources, and future are tied up in this venture, you should take precautions to protect your investment. Your contractor will most likely require you to sign a contract, a warranty, and other legal documents that the contractor's attorney has prepared to protect the contractor's interest. You should seek your own legal assistance before signing these documents. After a free consultation, I can offer a flat rate fee that includes the following:

  • Vet contractors, home designers, and engineers
  • Review contracts and warranties
  • Verify contractors' license, workers compensation, and general liability
  • Negotiate modifications and change work orders
  • Recommend preventive measures
  • Tackle the challenges that may endanger your investment

In addition, the package includes a set number of legal consultation hours as well as representation hours which can be used throughout the process. If you are seeking to build a home for yourself and your family, or if you are seeking to purchase a spec home, tract home, or to build without a contractor, then you can also look to me for the legal representation that you need on your side.

Extra services can be included with your plan for a discounted rate. Such services can include review of the home owners' association's covenants, conditions, and restrictions as well as its approval process. Additional hours of representation through the building process and zoning appeal services also can be incorporated into the plan.

Helping Build Your Future with Experience and Integrity

My experience as a contractor before and after law school combined with more than a decade of legal experience enables me to offer insight and counsel regarding your home investment that can give you an invaluable advantage during the construction and buying process.
