In addition to having routine procedures for protecting their construction lien and bond rights, Florida material suppliers should maximize their rights provided by Floridaâ€™s commercial code. The Uniform Commercial Code (Sales) governs transactions in goods and addresses such things as warranty obligations, liability for goods damaged prior to a buyerâ€™s acceptance, and contract provisions limiting a buyerâ€™s remedies. Under the Code, suppliers have the right to demand assurances from a buyer when reasonable concern arises about the buyerâ€™s ability or intention to fulfill its obligations under the contract. Additionally, the Code provides steps a material supplier can take to perfect its right to cure a tender when a buyer asserts the goods are nonconforming.
If you are a material supplier, choose a lawyer who will help you maximize the protections afforded by the commercial code, as well as your lien and bond rights. Call the Law Office of Robert S. Tanner today.
