What is a Building Dispute?
A building dispute refers to conflicts and disagreements that can arise during the course of a construction project, whether it be residential or commercial. These disputes often occur when one party fails to deliver on their contractual obligations, leading to a breakdown in the relationship between the parties involved. Common causes of building disputes can include issues related to payment, variations in the work, delays in completion, defects in the workmanship, or disagreements over the interpretation of the contract. These disputes can be complex and stressful, often requiring legal intervention to resolve. As experienced building dispute lawyers serving residents in Albury, we are well-equipped to navigate these challenges and work towards a resolution that protects your interests.
Residential Building Disputes
Whether it’s the construction of a new home or the renovation of an existing one, our home building dispute lawyers can handle any residential building cases. We have extensive experience and knowledge in this area, ensuring that your interests are protected.
Commercial Building Disputes
Payment Disputes and Variations
Variations or changes to the scope of work can often lead to payment disputes. As experienced contract dispute lawyers, we can help navigate these situations, review your construction contract, and work towards a satisfactory resolution.

NCAT (NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal) and Court Proceedings

We can help with submitting applications, preparing evidence, and representing you at hearings.
