What is a Building Dispute?
A building dispute is a conflict or disagreement that arises during a construction project, whether it is residential or commercial in nature.

Building disputes can encompass various issues, including contractual disagreements, construction defects, payment disputes, variations, delays, and defects. These disputes can disrupt the smooth progress of a project and may require legal intervention to resolve the conflicts and protect the rights and interests of the parties involved.
