National Construction Law Manual 4E

By: James Acret

Here you’ll find in-depth coverage of just about every legal term someone may throw at you, what the true meanings of these terms are, and how they may apply to you in a construction business.

Covers contracts, competent parties, legal object, letters of intent, certainty, consideration, illusory contract, mutual assent, offer and acceptance, delivery, contracts without words, options, duress, bidding, modification of forms, owner’s damages for defective construction, contractor’s damages for breach by owner, warranties, and just about every legal issue a contractor can face.

"The National Construction Law Manual is a great resource for professionals who work in the construction environment. The reader can easily gain a very thorough understanding of the legal issues facing the industry, use it to fill in some gaps in his or her knowledge of the subject, or use the manual to refresh previously acquired skills. It takes you through basic contract law, torts, liens, dispute resolution, and the most commonly used contract forms."

Includes sample contracts, forms, and agreements
