About Our Law Firm
Understanding Fair Trading Contracts
The Fair Trading Contract is a standardised building contract issued by the New South Wales government, aimed at creating a balanced agreement between homeowners and builders. Regularly updated to align with legislative changes and industry standards, this contract is particularly relevant for residents at Griffith and its surrounding suburbs.
Key features include a well-defined scope of work, a detailed progress payment schedule, and robust provisions for dispute resolution. While the contract is designed to be fair and easy to use, it may not be suitable for all construction projects, especially those requiring specialised work.
Compared to other contracts, the Fair Trading Contract is generally more homeowner-friendly, offering clearer dispute resolution clauses and better protection of homeowner rights. However, it may lack the flexibility some builders seek.
At Contracts Specialist, we offer a comprehensive suite of services tailored to meet the unique needs of homeowners at Griffith and its surrounding suburbs. Our services are designed to provide you with the legal support you need at every stage of your construction project.
