Construction Arbitration Services in California for Contractors

Many times, disputes will occur in industries such as construction whenever vendor problems or contractual violations occur. Perhaps due to a controversy or lack of payment, you now find yourself needing to take legal action.

Your options include having to go through the court system, which involves lawyers, or following the process of arbitration, which takes place outside the court system.

Arbitration, which is a recognized legal alternative, can be used to effectively solve your construction disputes. With this process, you will be able to work closely with a certified arbitrator to come up with different resolutions or remedies for the dispute.

At Business Consumer Alliance, we offer all of our members free arbitration services. When you need arbitration services for contractors in California, our team will hear your dispute, handle all the paperwork and come up with a written decision. This can also all take place over the phone so that your usual business routine is not disrupted.

Benefits of Construction Arbitration in California

Using arbitration as a means to resolve construction disputes has several benefits, such as:

  • Both parties will be able to work with an arbitrator who is professionally trained and has practical experience in the field.
  • The setting used to solve the dispute is more flexible and informal than it would be in court.
  • This process helps save you money because you are not amassing attorney and court fees.
  • The results and rewards are easier to enforce, are binding and can even be entered in a court of law as a judgment.

Benefits of Using BCA vs. CSLB

For construction dispute resolution in California, there are many benefits to going through BCA vs. CSLB (Contractors State License Board). Specifically, it's important to be aware that with CSLB, they can:

  • Revoke your license
  • Share your records publically
  • Fine you for any violations they find from their investigation

 

At BCA, on the other hand, you don't have to worry about your license being revoked after a certain number of disputes. We also offer your construction business the benefit of private records so that your information is not reported to the credit bureaus and will not show on your credit report, which could have an adverse effect on your credit and cause your FICO score to decrease.

Other Advantages of a BCA Membership

As a member of BCA, you will have access to our construction arbitration services as well as other benefits designed to save you money and help your business grow, such as:
