Owner Remedies in Construction Agreements

The Real Estate Finance Journal

This article presents a discussion of the issues surrounding certain remedies available to an owner or developer of a project (“Owner”) under a construction agreement with a prime contractor (i.e., general contractor or construction manager, hereinafter “Contractor”), some of which is also applicable to the remedies available to the Contractor under its agreement with a subcontractor. This discussion will highlight the main issues pertaining to principal remedies, but is not intended to serve as an exhaustive survey of all issues and remedies. Also, the article is based on New York State law, though most of the discussion is likely applicable to contracts governed by other state laws.
