Construction Disputes

Construction Disputes

The number of disputes in the construction industry has increased greatly in recent years. Construction disputes can be extremely time-consuming and stressful for the parties involved, also having potentially severe cost implications and knock-on effects to other projects.

If you work in the construction industry and have encountered a dispute, it is important to seek legal advice at the earliest possible stage in order to avoid unnecessary anguish further down the line.

Recent Experience of Construction Disputes

At Farleys, our solicitors regularly advise both individuals and companies on a multitude of issues in the construction industry. We have recently acted for contractors, major developers, sub-contractors and interior designers. Specific issues which we regularly provide legal advice on include the following:

  • Dispute advice including adjudication, conciliation, mediation and arbitration where possible to avoid protracted and expensive litigation
  • Professional negligence claims against surveyors, architects and other professionals in relation to the certified completion of works
  • Damages claims against negligent contractors
  • Claims against builders for sub-standard building work or defective workmanship
  • Claims involving defective materials
  • Claims in relation to consequential losses and alternative accommodation costs
  • Remediation works
  • Loss of sales
  • Incorrect billing
  • Intellectual property infringement
  • Drafting of construction contracts including advice on contractual terms before and after the drafting of the contract
  • Preparation of schedules of works, costings, party wall agreements and industry timelines
  • Claims against individual builders where a claim against the construction company is not possible
  • Claims for delay where there has been a failure to carry out the specified work in accordance with the contract
  • The recovery of unpaid retention payments and unpaid debts
  • Planning disputes and advice on appealing planning permission rejections
  • Building regulation issues and fire, gas and electricity safety certificates advice.

We recognise that the litigation process can be extremely expensive and protracted and we will therefore discuss any Alternative Dispute Resolution options with you at the outset such as negotiation, mediation and adjudication.
