What is the process of resolving a Building Work Dispute?
If you have a dispute with a ‘cowboy’ builder, the damage to your property can be significant and expensive to fix. It is therefore important to seek legal advice as soon as possible.
During claims and disputes in construction it is imperative to collate and preserve evidence so that you can not only move forward with getting things fixed, but also pursue a claim for losses incurred simultaneously.
Depending on the type of dispute, we will arrange for an expert to visit the property and carry out an inspection of the work. Following this, we will attempt to resolve the dispute through negotiation or mediation. If this fails, we will move forward with court proceedings.
What is the cost of resolving a Contractor Dispute resolution?
Every dispute case is different and therefore the fees depend on the circumstances of each individual case.
The majority of construction professionals have insurance in place, meaning it can be easier for you to recover costs and damages. You may also have insurance that can help with legal fees.
