What is a Building Dispute?
A building dispute encompasses conflicts and disagreements that may arise during a construction project, whether residential or commercial.

Common issues that may lead to building disputes include disputes over payment, variations in project specifications, delays in completion, defects in construction, and contract terminations. When such disputes occur, seeking the assistance of an experienced building dispute lawyer becomes crucial to navigate the complexities of construction law and working towards finding a favourable resolution for all parties involved.

NCAT (NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal) and Court
In cases where alternative dispute resolution methods are not sufficient to resolve disputes, our law firm is equipped to represent clients before the NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal (NCAT), even if there is no NCAT office at the physical location. As the NCAT usually allows audio-visual proceedings, we can effectively handle disputes through remote means.
Additionally, depending on the complexity and amount involved, we can represent clients in District Court or Supreme Court proceedings. Our skilled construction dispute lawyer guides clients through the legal process, offering valuable advice and preparing them for hearings to achieve favourable resolutions.
When breaches of contract occur, our legal team thoroughly examines the details and advises on the appropriate course of action. We offer comprehensive guidance on contract termination matters and present all available options.
