Builder
Disputes

Having building work done is often exciting and stressful at the same time because a lot of money is involved and a great deal of disruption while the works are going on.

Most builders state that they are reliable; however, disputes can arise due to a range of factors, such as the quality of work, delays with the project and incomplete works.

At Ashwood Solicitors, we have a team dedicated to legal dispute resolution for clients; we can provide you with legal advice and representation if you’ve paid for building work in your home. We aim to help clients avoid getting into a dispute or resolve them at an early stage. We offer a service tailored to the complexity of your dispute to provide advice and support when achieving the best outcome for our clients.

Our team have acted on behalf of a range of clients, from commercial and large building projects to smaller residential building projects. Going to court is very much a last resort and we try to resolve matters through mediation before filing for court proceedings.

Arbitration

Building disputes can often cause the actual building work to become secondary to the ongoing costs and disruption associated with the dispute. With arbitration, we can help you resolve building disputes that allow you to gain a fair settlement from an independent arbitration expert. Our team can advise you throughout, but this is typically a route that is faster and less costly to court proceedings.

Building dispute mediation

Mediation is a form of negotiating a dispute; if it is within your interests, we will encourage you and your builder to enter into mediation. It is informal and cost-effective, plus both parties can walk away at any time. Our team at Ashwood Solicitors will always ensure that an agreement is watertight and that you are protected at all times.

Taking your dispute to court

If we are unable to secure the result you need through negotiation, mediation or arbitration, our team can advise if court proceedings are appropriate. At Ashwood Solicitors, we aim to give you honest advice on the success of your case and the potential costs involved when taking your dispute to court.

Important things to consider

When raising a dispute about your builder or building works, there are a number of important things you need to be aware of. For example, The Consumer Rights Act applies to a dispute where reasonable care and skill have failed to be used. If this is the case, get in touch with our team at Ashwood Solicitors, we can help you understand what is involved and what costs may occur. We always aim to give a detailed quote and potential costs before we start to take on your dispute.
