Testimonials

Your questions answered

Can builders or subcontractors make a claim against an owner?

Yes, builders can make a claim against an owner for a variety of reason. Subcontractors can also make a claim against an owner to a limited extent.

Do you review building contracts?

We review building contracts when there is a dispute, typically this is after the agreement has been made. In general, we do not review building contracts before they are signed.

How do you prove a building has defects?

We engage building experts to assess the defects, and provide a report on the severity of the defect and whether or not they are compliant with Australian Standards.

What types of disputes do you cover in claims?

For owners, we cover claims for breach of contract, defects in design and construction, non-completion, and slow to complete the works.

For builders, we cover claims for breach of contract, variations to the works or contract price, late payments, and disputes about interpretation of the building contract.

For disputes between head contractors and subcontractors, we cover claims about payment, poor workmanship, quality issues with the material the subcontractor has used, and non-payment or retention of any money and the retention not being paid.

Who can make a building and construction claim?

The owner and contractor (builder) can both make claims because they are the parties to the building contract.

Claims can be brought against architects, subcontractors, suppliers of building materials, and other parties relevant to the contract.
