Issues relating to home construction and repair are frequently brought to consumer protection agencies in Sweden. There are many uncertainties at the start of construction such as the condition of the material not visible at the start of the work or unforeseen weather conditions. The project may also be modified to include additional work or changes in the original work order. These and other factors often result in disputes. With well-written, clear, user-friendly contracts, many disputes can be avoided. When disputes arise, the applicable laws are complex and competent legal advice is needed to sort out the respective rights and obligations. For example, may the customer withhold payment if the work was inadequate? Can the contractor refuse to continue performance until payment is made? Does the contractor have a right to fix the defects or may the customer hire a different contractor to do the work? We help sort out who must do what and when and to what price.
