Dispute Resolution Consulting
There is a high incidence of disputes arising from building construction. This usually occurs due to a breakdown in communication between the builder and their client, or it can be the result of poor workmanship. In most cases the two go hand in hand. Other disputes may arise from excessive charges of incorrect supply or installation of materials.
Coastal Home & Building Inspections encourages both parties to resolve disputes in an amicable manner however this may not be achieved in some cases. This is the time when our service can assist you by advising on contract matters and providing detailed reports on building defects. Reports are informative and comprehensive including detailed descriptions of defects and photos. Reports are produced in line Queensland Building and Construction Commission. We can also supply specialist reports from industry experts should the need arise for additional information.
Scope of Works
When acting for clients in disputes we provide specialist Building Inspection Reports to initially record defective items. For rectification programs Coastal Home & Building Inspections provide Scope of Works documentation to ensure the defects, repairs and resolution process is understood by all parties involved. Rectification processes are supervised throughout the repair process and documentation is signed off on completion. This ensures the dispute is resolved, agreed to by all parties and recorded should defective works re-appear in the future.
Ultimately some building disputes end up in court and that is when you will require the services of an Expert Witness. Coastal Home & Building Inspections are qualified and insured and produce quality, detailed reports that can be used in legal building dispute cases.
