What is a Building Dispute?
A building dispute encompasses conflicts and disagreements that can arise during the course of a construction project, both in residential and commercial settings. These disputes typically occur when one or more parties involved in the project fail to fulfil their contractual obligations. Common issues leading to building disputes include delays in construction, defects in workmanship, disputes over payment or variations to the original contract, and disagreements regarding the termination of the contract. Resolving these disputes requires a comprehensive understanding of construction law and the ability to navigate the legal framework governing construction projects. As experienced building dispute lawyers, we are here to assist you in effectively addressing and resolving these challenges.
