Some construction contracts have clauses that limit how you can try to get compensation if something goes awry with the project. One of these is that you might have agreed to go through arbitration to address any issues.
We recently discussed construction delays and how they impact your project end date. The issue that often comes up in these cases is that you will have to scramble to adjust the move-in plans that you had. This can put you in a difficult spot, whether you are having a home or a business built, there might be other factors that you can't adjust easily.
