What is a Building Dispute?
A building dispute encompasses conflicts and disagreements that can arise during residential or commercial construction projects. These disputes often occur when one party involved in the project fails to fulfil their contractual obligations. Common issues that can lead to building disputes include:
- Quality and Defects: Disagreements may arise regarding the quality of workmanship or materials used in the construction, as well as the presence of defects or deficiencies.
- Delays and Variations: Disputes can occur due to project delays beyond agreed-upon timelines or unauthorised changes to the original scope of work.
- Payment Disputes: Conflicts may arise regarding payment terms, progress payments, or disputes over the amount owed for completed work.
- Contract Termination: Disagreements may occur when one party wishes to terminate the construction contract prematurely.
Resolving building disputes requires a thorough understanding of construction law and contractual obligations. As experienced construction lawyers, we can help you navigate these complex disputes and work towards a fair resolution.

We will review your construction contract, assess the validity of the dispute, and guide you through the process of resolving the payment dispute or variation.
NCAT (NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal) and Court Proceedings
If the dispute cannot be resolved through negotiation or alternative dispute resolution methods, it may proceed to formal proceedings in the NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal (NCAT) or court. Our construction dispute lawyer is well-versed in the tribunal and court proceedings and can provide you with the necessary legal representation, including:
- Assisting with the preparation of applications and evidence
- Representing you in hearings and proceedings

If contract termination is the best course of action, we will assist you in enforcing your legal rights and terminating the construction contract with the other party.
