Experienced Legal Guidance for Your Ongoing Needs
Construction projects can be a serious financial investment for everyone involved. Van Valer Law Firm understands Indiana’s complex construction laws, including lien laws, construction licensing laws, warranty laws, breach of contract laws, and land and zoning laws. Attorney, Tom Vander Luitgaren and Eric Prime, will help you work within these laws to prevent obstacles to land development.
Van Valer Law Firm works with real estate clients on countless development issues, including the acquisition of land, subdivision construction, and creation of planned communities. Utilize the real estate experience of our attorneys to negotiate and prepare purchase and sale agreements, assist with construction loan disbursements, and help you with obtaining mechanics lien waivers.
Disputes arise in many construction projects. When contractors, workers, or suppliers do not receive the agreed upon compensation for labor, service, or materials related to a project, a mechanic’s lien could be recorded against the property. Our attorneys are knowledgeable in the area of lien law, from the preparation of lien documents to litigation to foreclosure upon a recorded lien.
Our firm represents subcontractors and suppliers seeking to collect from general contractors, carpenters, surveyors, etc., and seeking payment from property owners who dispute the lien’s place against their property.
Our Commercial Real Estate and Construction Law attorneys have experience in collecting unpaid debt through a mechanic’s lien, enforcing lien terms, and even defending a mechanic’s lien filed against your property.
