What is a Building Dispute?
A building dispute arises when conflicts and disagreements occur during the progress of a construction project, whether it’s for residential or commercial purposes. These disputes can emerge when one party fails to fulfil their contractual obligations, leading to disputes regarding various aspects of the project.
At Contracts Specialist, we offer a range of services to assist clients in resolving their construction disputes. Our firm is well-versed in handling various types of disputes, ensuring that your legal rights are protected and your interests are safeguarded. Our services include:
Residential Building Disputes
Residential building disputes can arise during the construction, renovation, or alteration of a home. Our firm specialises in resolving issues related to residential construction, including contract disputes, construction defects, and disputes arising from variations, delays, and defects. We provide expert guidance to homeowners residing in Katoomba to help them navigate through these complex disputes and achieve favourable outcomes.
Commercial Building Disputes
Our services extend to handling commercial building disputes, which can occur between building owners, contractors, subcontractors, and other industry professionals. Whether it’s a payment dispute, performance-related issues, or claims of negligence or trespass, our firm has the expertise to handle complex commercial disputes. We strive to protect the interests of our clients in Katoomba and its surrounding suburbs, providing effective legal representation and guidance throughout the resolution process.
Payment Disputes and Variations
Payment disputes and variations are common issues in construction contracts. Our firm understands the complexities of payment disputes and the impact of variations on construction projects. We provide expert advice on contract terms, payment procedures, and the proper handling of variations. Our goal is to assist clients in resolving payment disputes and variations in a fair and equitable manner, ensuring that their rights are protected and contractual obligations are met.
NCAT (NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal) and Court Proceedings
While there may not be a physical NCAT office in Katoomba, our firm is well-equipped to handle NCAT proceedings through audio-visual means. We are experienced in representing clients in the NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal (NCAT) as well as court proceedings. Our building dispute lawyer has in-depth knowledge of the legal processes involved in building disputes and can guide clients through the required applications, evidence submissions, and hearings. We strive to achieve favourable resolutions for our clients, leveraging our expertise and understanding of the tribunal and court systems.
In situations where a contract breach has occurred, our building dispute lawyer can provide guidance on contract termination. We analyse the details of your legal situation, assess the breach of contract, and present you with all available options. If terminating the construction contract is the best course of action, we will guide you through the process and help enforce your legal rights.
