Dispute Resolution Clauses In Building Contracts

We have recently seen clients who saw us seeking advice concerning defective building works in relation to a building contract which involved the construction of their home pool.

Unfortunately basic things like checking whether the appropriate pool builder is a member of a recognized building association such as SPASA is an important fact to assist with dispute resolution especially when a lot of professional organizations will have their standard procedures in place for such dispute resolution and can assist.

In this particular contract in question there was no dispute resolution clause which meant the clients only had formal court options to consider rather than being able to press for the matter to be resolved by a conciliator or mediator appointed by the relevant professional body.

If you think your contracts may be deficient in these areas, see us first by calling 1300 428 947 or email commercial@hatzis.com.au
