We have all heard of “cowboy builders” and construction firms cutting corners. However, we often believe they are very few in number – until you suffer at their hands, that is. Buying a property is a huge investment, so you must do all you can to ensure the investment is protected.  

Types of dispute

Building disputes can take various forms. Here are some of the most common:

  • Claims against main contractors
  • Issues surrounding Joint Contracts Tribunal contracts
  • Problems involving associated sub-contractors

How we can help

Construction litigation is a speciality of ours at McHale & Co. Our building dispute solicitors have a proven track record of bringing dodgy builders to justice over their poor works. We are therefore perfectly placed to advise you as to what action you are entitled to take, placing you back in the position you would have been in prior to the work being carried out. If an amicable solution cannot be reached, we have vast experience in issuing proceedings at court to get the outcome you desire. We proactively address issues of costs and prospects of success to put you in the best position to make the decision most appropriate for you and your business.

We also regularly act for the builders themselves, which gives us an excellent perspective on yours and their position.
