How to Handle Contract Disputes
One of the most common reasons for contract disputes, particularly in the construction industry, is that both parties feel as though they are being unfairly treated by the other party. Whether it is the inability to complete a task or the inability to receive all the compensation and benefits that they have bargained for, the parties may feel as though they have been wronged.
When you receive a client’s notice of intent to terminate the contract, the company is often required to provide a written notice stating the reason for termination. The notice of intent to terminate is called a termination notice. There are some companies that prefer to give this notification without writing a termination notice, as it is easier to argue for the termination, if the notice of intent to terminate is difficult to read and not very clear.
When a builder or property owner receives a notice of intent to terminate the contract, they may decide to defend the contract by taking their case to mediation. During mediation, the parties attempt to resolve any differences between them through negotiation. Often, there will be a written document that explains all the terms of the agreement, the responsibilities that the parties have agreed upon, and also the details about the termination process.
After the mediation, the mediators, the parties, and the parties’ legal advisors come up with a written report. The report details the details of each party’s agreement regarding the termination process, and also lays out the exact consequences that each party has received due to the actions of the other party.
During the arbitration stage, both the parties to the mediator, and the legal advisor, will work to resolve any legal issues that may arise during the process of mediation. The parties may have a disagreement over the details of the agreement such as the responsibilities of the parties or the termination date. The mediator may also have questions about any legal fees that will have to be paid, and any additional expenses that will need to be covered before and after the agreement has been finalized.
Once the mediation process is complete, the mediator will inform both the parties of the results of the process. Both the parties have an opportunity to review the details of the agreement and the arbitrator has the authority to modify any aspects of the agreement that he/she deems necessary.
