Building contract review

Get your building contract approved to avoid the three Ds:

Defects, Delays & Dollars

Know your building contract

Building or renovating can be a really smart property investment. It’s also one of the most risky. 

When building contracts turn into disputes, the legal costs will quickly run into tens of thousands of dollars. Add to that the cost of repairing or completing the works if the builder escapes liability, and suddenly your carefully-budgeted project has turned into an inescapable money pit.  

A lot can happen between signing the contract and the end of the build. If something does go wrong, you don’t want to be the one left out-of-pocket. Whether you're an investor purchasing a house and land package, or building your dream home, you need your residential building contract to be as water-tight as possible to protect against unforeseen consequences.

Building law is complicated and messy. Only an expert building lawyer can properly review and amend your contract, to give you piece of mind.

Bad contract = big costs

Singing a contract might seem simple enough, but building contracts are very complicated. There are many tricks hidden in a contract schedule that can come back to bite you.

Everyone insures their property once it’s built. But it’s the building process that is most likely to lead to significant financial losses.
