Question:- What can a real estate owner do to minimize construction disputes?

Answer
1) Communicate your ideas to the contractor and be realistic. Tell the contractor the size of your budget. You have the right to make adjustments before you sign the contract.

2) Monitor the job and have the contractor check with you if additional work has to be done.

3) If you want to change something, get the agreement in writing ("Change Order" form). In a verbal agreement, you or the contractor may not remember what either of you had agreed to.
