Building Disputes

It is an unfortunate reality that certain problems that arise between owners and builders can lead to one party taking legal action against the other. If that is the case, you will need independent advice from an expert with experience in dealing with these often complex matters.

Guidance & Reports

Where an owner is unhappy with the quality of their new home and has been unable to reach a satisfactory conclusion by dealing with their builder directly, BSS Group can offer practical guidance and cost estimates associated with rectifying any defects.

We will also provide authoritative reports that can be used by a solicitor to help reach an agreement at a preliminary or mediation stage, minimising the costs associated with a VCAT or Court hearing.

All reports are prepared by qualified and experienced staff, under the supervision of a BSS Director.

Our team prides itself on a proven track record for providing the most practical and useful information.

Stage of Works

If an owner in dispute with their builder decides to terminate a contract, BSS Group can conduct a Stage of Works report, documenting what stage everything is at, any defects, and who was responsible for each element of the build at the time of termination.

This report can be presented to a new builder for reference.

If you need guidance to reach a satisfactory resolution to a building dispute, call BSS Group to find out how we can assist.

Need a dispute resolved?

Throughout any construction, owners, builders and developers can experience significant problems relating to the standard of work, and time or cost overruns.

Independent and impartial advice from BSS Group can provide vital support in helping to achieve the best possible outcomes for all parties.

“We just wanted to say a massive thank-you! Your report gave us the confidence to push on, knowing we could take it to VCAT if we had to. In the end, we didn’t have to. That’s got a lot to do with you, especially the follow-up calls you took during the DBDRV process, which we appreciate enormously.”
