Building Disputes

Undertaking building works to your home or commercial premises is a major commitment. 

Although most builders are  reliable, disputes do arise and can be caused by many factors such as:

  • The quality of work
  • Delays
  • Incomplete works 

With over 125 years of experience of such disputes for clients in London and the South East, we have experience in resolving a wide range of building disputes.  We have acted for a variety of clients, from homeowners dealing with small contractors, commercial landlords in dispute with large construction companies and building companies who have not been paid for the work they have completed

Our Process

If you have not been able to resolve your dispute informally then we are able to provide an initial advice as to the merits of your case and the best process to achieve the desired objective. This may be by letter of claim pursuant to the Pre-action Protocol for construction disputes and subsequent proceedings if required, or through the adjudication process or alternative dispute resolution via mediation.

Whatever the action required, you can be confident that our solicitors will resolve your dispute in the most cost-effective way possible. We appreciate that disputes can be stressful and we will always provide advice on the merits, the process and  the timescale. We will provide detailed cost estimates so that you can, with our help, understand and manage your case.

If you have a building dispute, please call us on 020 8290 0333 or fill in our contact form and one of our litigation specialists will be in touch as soon as possible.
