General Contractor Agreements Explained

In this video, our Chicago construction attorneys discuss the purpose of guaranteed maximum price contracts in construction. A guaranteed maximum price is a limit on the amount that the owner will have to pay the contractor on the project, regardless of the actual cost of the project to the contractor. Unlike a standard “cost-plus-fee” contract, a guaranteed maximum price contract shifts the much of the risk that the project will be more expensive than estimates from the owner to the contractor.

In this video, Chicago construction attorney Kevin O'Flaherty discusses Chicago guaranteed maximum price contracts.

Mechanics Liens in Chicago

In this video, our Chicago construction attorneys explain how Mechanics Liens are a tool that is used in Chicago courts to seek payment for outstanding debts. The purpose of the Mechanics Lien Act is to ensure that contractors and subcontractors who provide labor, materials, fixtures, or machinery to improve real estate receive payment for their services and materials.  The Mechanics Lien Act provides a mechanism whereby contractors and subcontractors can place a lien on property that they work to improve in the amount of the value of their services and materials.  The lien prevents the owner of the property from transferring the property without first paying the contractor or subcontractor who holds the lien.  A Mechanics Lien also allows the contractor or subcontractor who holds the lien to foreclose on the property and have it sold in order to satisfy the lien.  

In this video, Construction dispute attorney Kevin O'Flaherty discusses how to create an effective Mechanics Lien in Chicago.
