Builders’ Legal Services
Stormcatcher Legal Services for Builders, Contractors and Tradespeople offers affordable, accessible legal advice, contracts dispute resolution direct from specialist construction lawyers.
Despite the JCT contract being the most common standard form construction contract in the UK, accounting for about 70% of building projects, proper contracts are rare in domestic and residential jobs.
This is due to standard contracts being more associated with design and build or standard building contracts, rather than so-called mixed projects or home improvements jobs.
However, failing to comply with fundamental legal regulations such as distance selling, cancellation rights, unfair commercial practises and consumer rights is asking for trouble.
Our legal services for builders, contractors and home improvement businesses has evolved to meet this need.
Building Bridges Not Walls
Focussed on finding solutions and resolving complaints about building work, refurbishment and home improvements out of court. We are committed to prevention rather than cure, but are on hand and equipped to deal with building and construction disputes when they arise.
This is especially important for small businesses where dealing with conflict and issues are time-consuming and costly. Without professional legal advice, a bad situation can quickly escalate, resulting in termination of contract and a court claim.
Understanding a builders rights and obligations , as well as that of the client, is central to setting out the landscape for compromise and overcoming objections. Recording variations of contract, extras, delays and acceptance are vital in keeping the project on track to satisfactory completion.
Our construction lawyers are experienced in all manner of construction dispute resolution, including mediation and arbitration.
Construction Law: Building Works
Costs, uncertainty and lack of practical experience are all deterrents to many builders and contractors using a construction solicitor, especially in domestic projects.
Our construction and property development lawyers offer a cost-effective alternative to traditional construction dispute solicitors and lawyers.
Not only are we construction law specialists but have unparalleled experience and knowledge of the building trade, home extensions, conversions and refurbishments.
This multi-trade multi-disciplined insight has led to our legal services for builders, contractors and tradespeople becoming the first choice for small and medium-sized firms.
Construction Contracts Terms & Conditions
In construction contracts and building projects time is often of the essence. Anticipating and dealing with delays to the completion date, reaching agreement on variations and of course, resolving conflict and disputes is crucial. Often the absence of adequate construction contracts terms and conditions setting out what is to be done, when and for how much is the catalyst for problems later on.
Building and home improvement contracts should be clear, unambiguous and capable of guiding building firms and consumers alike.
Stormcatcher Construction Industry Legal Services have evolved to meet this need offering accessible, affordable and understandable legal services and advice from a construction lawyer experienced in dealing with all manner of construction project disputes, including conversions, renovation agreement and general building work contracts.
