Notice provisions are in place to ensure all parties are aware of any issues that may affect your projects. They define timelines that specify when you have to deliver notice of any potential claims.
We are all dealing with extreme circumstances now, so it’s vital that contractors understand the legal ramifications and duties they may have based on their contracts.
