What is a Building Dispute?
A building dispute encompasses conflicts and disagreements that arise during the progress of a construction project, whether it involves residential or commercial properties. These disputes commonly occur when one or more parties involved in the project fail to fulfil their contractual obligations. Issues may arise from disagreements over the quality of workmanship, delays in project completion, payment disputes, variations to the contract, defects, or disagreements regarding contract termination. Building disputes require legal intervention to resolve the conflicts and ensure the rights and interests of the parties involved are protected.
