We specialise in resolving building and construction disputes.
We provide legal advice on:
- recovering payment due and reclaiming overpayments
- builders having walked off site
- unfinished and incomplete works and remedial works
- defective work and poor workmanship
- "extras" claims
- retention disputes
- contract disputes
- planning permission disputes
- negligent architect design
- recovering monies from directors personally
Litigation can be very expensive and time consuming and so we intend to resolve disputes amicably.
We work with building surveyors as sometimes an independent report needs to be obtained to show the actual cost of the work done, pinpointing any defective work and the cost of repair.
