Work with experienced attorney to address construction contractor complaints

Last time, we began looking at a recent investigation of alleged problems with the Pinnellas County Construction Board. As we noted, the investigation showed that the board has little to no oversight. Because of this, critics say, the board is basically free to decide which contractors they want to discipline and which contractors they want to favor.

A recent investigation found that the lack of oversight has generally left the public feeling excluded from the board’s decision-making process, that the board has refused to be transparent in its dealings, and that it has generally failed to follow basic ethical and procedural rules. While such problems are not necessarily present to the same extent in every county construction board, or equivalent body, it is always important for consumers to work with an experienced attorney when addressing construction disputes through this avenue. 

Different counties have different procedures and requirements for addressing contractor complaints. In Sarasota County, complaints may be filed either with the county or with the State of Florida. The construction work in question must have been done within the county in order to file within the county. After a complaint form is filled out, an investigation is conducted and the consumer and the contractor are informed about the findings.

In Sarasota County, as in other counties, the county is only able to address issues involving the building code. Contract disputes and warranties are civil matters that must be addressed in court. No matter what the issues in the case, though, an experienced attorney can help ensure that the issues are addressed in the proper forum and that the consumer has the best possible advocacy throughout the process.
