Construction Disputes

Construction contract disputes can arise for a variety of reasons, with payment disputes being the most common. Construction Disputes

Whatever the nature of your grievance, it is best to seek early legal advice, before the issue gets out of hand. A solicitor who specialises in construction disputes will listen to the details of your case before explaining what options are open to you.

Previously, construction contract disputes would be resolved through arbitration or litigation in the courts. However, under the new Construction Contracts Act 2013, payment disputes can now be resolved via adjudication.

Adjudication involves appointing an independent adjudicator to settle the dispute between the parties. A decision must be made within 28 days of the papers being referred, so the process is both quick and cost-effective – especially when compared to litigation through the courts.

A solicitor with experience in construction disputes will suggest the best method of dispute resolution for you.
