Building Contracts

Building Contracts

At Nicholas James our construction and building lawyers are experienced in a wide range of issues affecting the construction sector, assisting landowners, builders, project managers, and others in avoiding or resolving legal issues.

We have extensive expertise in and around the construction sector, which means that our building contract lawyers are familiar with both the practical and legal aspects of construction challenges.

As a builder or contractor, you may need experienced legal advice on the legal conditions of a residential or commercial construction contract. We may either create the contract from the ground up for you or alter an existing contract to fit the needs of a specific job.

We understand that disputes can be unpleasant and time-consuming, which is why we help clients to:

  • Assert and enforce contractual rights; and, if necessary, aid in the containment of harm and the best possible presentation of our client’s position.
  • Contractual disagreements are frequently handled amicably without the need for legal action or mediation. Our construction lawyers will assist clients with this negotiation whenever possible.

When a contract isn’t entirely clear, it’s critical that the contracting parties seek legal advice. Contract disputes can swiftly develop to the point where each party threatens to terminate the contract due to the other party’s alleged breach of the contract.

However, the contract and the law in general may have an impact on each party’s right to terminate the contract, or the alleged breach of the contract by the other party may not be a sufficient cause to terminate the contract at law or under the contract. If a party terminates a contract when it shouldn’t (or shouldn’t have had the authority to), the opposing party might sue for damages.

In contract disputes, clients are frequently at a disadvantage. Due to the way strata, body corporate, communities, and company schemes make choices and operate, contractors’ demands are sometimes unable to be delivered by deadlines. The use of a lawyer during a contract dispute should aid in the protection and preservation of the Scheme’s right
