Getting the right legal advice early on and having a Sydney construction lawyer manage any legal issues efficiently can help minimise the impact they can have on a construction company’s profitability and a homeowner’s construction goals. A construction lawyer and building contract solicitor can point you to the right direction, helping mediate with other parties, and guide you through litigation if needed.
Sydney is currently experiencing a construction boom. There is over $1 billion worth of residential building works being done across the city. Along with the redevelopment and enhancements come building disputes, strata issues, and other problems, too. Construction can be quite a costly investment- both to builders and homeowners, however, sometimes things do not go as planned. In some residential and commercial building disputes, it can’t be helped when two parties cannot resolve the issue among themselves. The construction contract is breached, and as it often happens, miscommunication worsens the situation. These building disputes can be stressful and costly, draining energy and finances from both parties.
