Dispute Resolution Service

Pre Signing of Contract Advice

If you are one of those many people who find yourself out of your depth when confronted with a hefty building contract to wade through and sign, and you need some expert advice on where the likely pitfalls are going to be, we can peruse the documents. We can prepare a list of issues that are likely to be causes for a dispute down the track, so that you can have these clarified with your contract partner before you sign on the dotted line.

Breach of Contract Advice
Failure to Perform Advice
Post Contract Fault and Failures Advice

If your contract partner has failed to give you what the contract says you are paying for, we can prepare a report that will assist you in making a claim against your contract partner.

Preparation of Reports for Building Disputation

If your contract partner fails to attend to matters that are clearly their obligation to attend to, we can prepare a report that will assist you in making a claim against your contract partner.

Expert Evidence and Court Appearances

If you are embroiled in a dispute that you are unable to resolve and are taking the matter to a place of jurisdiction for a determination, we can prepare a report that will assist you in presenting the claim. We can attend that tribunal to present clear and independent evidence that will be recognised by the tribunal.

Assistance with Insurance Warrantee Claims

If your contract partner has carried out work that is structurally faulty or not to a recognised and acceptable workmanlike quality and will not accept responsibility for that defective work, you may choose to make a claim against your building warrantee insurer. We can prepare a report that will assist you in making a claim from your warrantee insurer.
