What is a Building Dispute?
A building dispute encompasses conflicts and disagreements that arise during the course of a construction project, whether it is residential or commercial in nature. These disputes can emerge when one or more parties involved in the project fail to fulfil their contractual obligations. Common scenarios leading to building disputes include disagreements over work quality, delays in completion, payment disputes, breach of contract, defects, variations, and disagreements over design or specifications. Building disputes can be complex and have the potential to disrupt the progress of the project, resulting in financial implications and strained relationships between the parties involved. Resolving these disputes requires the expertise of a skilled construction lawyer who can navigate the intricacies of construction law and strive for a favourable outcome for all parties involved.
