Florida developers looking at mobile home parks

Across Florida, commercial real estate developers are buying up mobile parkland. Considering the lack of upkeep of many of these mobile parks, this is no easy undertaking. Trailer owners often have abandoned their broken down trailers. Besides removal of these trailers, creation of new plans for use and development of the land is required. This includes building of grocery stores, movie theaters, malls or upscale housing on the property.

What are a few notable contract terms with serious consequences?

Contracts are at the heart of nearly every single business relationship and at the center of almost every dispute. The terms parties include in the contract define the promises and obligations of each party. These terms include directions and limitations for handling disagreements, which can have a huge impact on the outcome of litigation.

Developer interested in Orlando park could face resistence

When a developer sets out to build on a plot of land there are many factors that need to be considered. While settling on a design navigating the relationship with the contractor may be tricky, some developers don’t even get that far before issues arise. For example, developers could face issues with securing the land or receiving permission to build on it.

Virgin's plan to enter into cruise business prompts lawsuit

Business disputes arise in a variety of situations. We have previously written about disagreements that arise as a result of a breach of contract. Other times they are filed following an allegation of theft. Sometimes, it is multiple issues that prompt one individual or entity to take legal action against another. This is the case in a lawsuit recently filed in a federal court in Florida. Virgin Group and British billionaire Richard Branson have been sued by the former chief executive office of Norwegian Cruise Line.

Defective pipes could lead to construction defect litigation

In a previous post we provided an overview on things that might fall under the definition of construction defect. In that post we mentioned that a variety of issues could fall under that definition. One of the things we mentioned that might constitute a construction defect is the use of defective products. In this post we will focus on one particular product that could pose a problem from property owners. That product is CPVC pipe.  Chlorinated polyvinyl chloride, commonly referred to as "CPVC," is a thermoplastic used to produce pipes and related fittings. CPVC applications include water supply pipes, water-based heat transfer systems, and sprinkler systems and drain lines, in both commercial and residential buildings. Certain chemicals are incompatible with CPVC pipes which lead to environmental stress cracking. Spray foam insulation has an adverse chemical reaction with CPVC pipes. If this piping comes in contact with adverse chemicals such as spray foam insulation, you may have a construction defect claim against your builder/developer.
