Procedural and Legal Requirements

There are numerous parties involved in the construction process such as landowners, builders, contractors, architects, engineers, finance lenders and material suppliers. This far-reaching network required to complete a build project also gives greater opportunity for issues to arise.

The building industry is unique and specialised knowledge is required. The procedural and legal requirements are distinctive and appointing a lawyer who is not experienced in the building industry can be costly and, in some instances, detrimental to the build, your business and your relationship with the industry.
