Given the construction boom in Sydney at the moment, the volume and need for competent and reliable building and construction lawyers has never been more vital. Anybody who has ever been involved or had to manage the construction of a building or their home can attest to the legal complexities involved in building and construction.
Selecting the right building and construction lawyer is crucial in helping you understand the complex legal issues in building contracts and the law.
Building disputes can impact many aspects of the parties involved. Whether it be a homeowner who is waiting to move into their home, a sub-contractor who has not yet been paid, or a developer who has gone over budget and over time – building disputes can be costly, stressful, and not in the interests of all parties.
Having a reliable building and construction lawyer can not only minimise your risk and exposure, it can enhance the profitability of your next project.
An unresolved building dispute lingering over your company can significantly delay your project, reduce profitability and tighten your company’s cash flow.

Over the years we have seen a number of individuals or companies who, because of poor legal representation (or lack of legal representation), have ended up in lengthy court battles over a range of building disputes which could have been avoided if they had approached lawyers at the early stages.
No matter how big or small your next construction project is, it is always a good idea to have an experienced lawyer to draft or review your building and construction contract and guide you through the laws and legal issues in construction.
At Rockliffs Lawyers our lawyers have years of experience handling commercial, industrial, rural and domestic building disputes.
