Construction Lawyers for Homeowners
Building a home can be a stressful experience for many, particularly for those who are first-time homeowners. Having to worry about legal disputes in addition to this can make the process even more overwhelming.
Many builders have years of experience in the construction industry. They know the tricks of the trade and often have teams of people to handle any issues.
As a homeowner, countless issues can arise during construction. These include hidden ‘extras’, complicated terminology, strict timelines, tricky processes for variations, and issues with defects and practical completion.
Our building and construction lawyers can help you understand and assist you with that process. We are here to assist you from signing the contract to handling any construction issues. Our lawyers can assist you with post-construction issues, even after the defects liability period has ended.
We can also help you with one of the most common home build issues – arguments about the costs, and payment disputes.
