There are several complex legal and technical factors in the industry that can affect the success of a construction project. Building and construction-related disputes are time and energy-consuming, leading to high financial risks. Because of the nature of such legal issues and the strict timelines, the earlier you seek legal assistance will determine your chances of winning your claim.
Parties involved in the construction of residential and commercial buildings deal with unforeseen circumstances. Most building & construction disputes revolve around:
Defective or incomplete work
Breach of the construction agreement
Compliance with local & state government development
Compliance with other regulatory authorities including environmental, and safety requirements.
Security of Payment
All stakeholders in the building & construction Industry have the right to timely payment. The Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act 1999 (NSW) can be put into action to make payment claims and effect the flow of cash from head contractor to subcontractor. The Security of payment Act however is a game of snakes and ladders and needs accurate, precise and strict compliance. To be successful you need a lawyer with extensive experience in utilising the Security of payment Act to effect successful outcomes. I act for all contractors, subcontractors, consultants, or suppliers to help them resolve the Security of Payment issues. You may need legal help when there are late, no, or underpayments where services have been rendered. Claimants working with me always end up with the most efficient and cost-effective way to resolve a payment dispute. You can get the following from me:

Constructing a building is usually a costly investment and involves different parties that make up the stakeholders. Sometimes things do not go as planned in such a project. There may arise disputes that are caused by a breach of building and construction contract and miscommunication.
Defect and insurance claims
Clients looking to make claims on defective and incomplete works can do so with the help of a building and construction lawyer.
