Construction Law Email Attorney John E. Lippl  
 
Demystifying The Construction Process Since 1991
 A mechanics' lien may be filed within four months after the last work on
 the project, but your lien rights may be waived without your knowledge.

 A lawsuit against your insurance company usually must be
 brought within one year of the loss giving rise to your claim.

 The Pennsylvania Payment Act provides for the recovery of interest
 and attorney's fees on some construction related disputes.

 Treble damages and attorney's fees may be recoverable under the
 Unfair Trade Practices Act.

 Warranties of workmanship and habitability are implied in some
 construction agreements, but may be waived.

 Some construction defects are not subject to a one-year warranty period.

 The arbitration process may be used to settle your dispute, without
 expensive, time consuming and protracted litigation in the civil courts.
