Litigation involving building disputes, building contracts, engineering contracts, or disputes with contractors can not only be stressful, but also costly.
It is important to seek legal advice about building disputes as soon as possible from a specialist property dispute solicitor, as disputes over building contracts or construction contracts can escalate quickly and cause delays to a building project.
Contacting a building dispute solicitor early on can also save on legal fees as resolving a building dispute quickly less correspondence between the parties accumulates.
LAWTEC Solicitors can take swift action to make sure a contractor complies with a contract in a building dispute – as well as appointing surveyors to assess any problems with a property or development and advise on any remedial repairs to be carried out by a contractor.
Circumstances that might require taking legal advice in a building dispute include:
- Engineering negligence, including planning
- Errors in building contracts
- Negligent work by contractors
- Payment disputes involving building contractors
- Poor or substandard work or materials used by contractors
- Work carried out by contractors or trades not specified under a contract.
Building disputes are a specific area of litigation – whether the dispute involves a residential or commercial project.
LAWTEC Solicitors can advise both homeowners and commercial property developers on building disputes, including alternatives to litigation such as dispute resolution and mediation.
LAWTEC Solicitors have in-house property experts able to advise on building disputes and help pinpoint where contractor negligence might have occurred in a building project.
LAWTEC Solicitors can also instruct experts such as surveyors and architects to help build a case in a building dispute.
