What is a Building Dispute?
A building dispute encompasses conflicts and disagreements that arise during the course of a construction project, whether it is residential or commercial in nature. It occurs when one or more parties involved fail to fulfil their contractual obligations, leading to disputes over various aspects of the project. Common issues that can give rise to building disputes include delays in construction, defects in workmanship, disputes over payment, variations to the original contract, and contract terminations.
Resolving building disputes requires a comprehensive understanding of construction law and its intricacies. Seeking legal assistance in such situations is crucial to protect your rights, navigate the complex legal landscape, and achieve a favourable resolution. A skilled building dispute lawyer can provide guidance, negotiate on your behalf, and pursue legal remedies if necessary.
