We provide housing associations with specialist legal advice on construction contracts as well as joint ventures and development agreements.
Construction contracts are often high value and involve complex issues. We have many years’ experience dealing with these matters and can provide you with bespoke advice at every stage, from agreeing terms to the conclusion of the contract, ensuring that the project progresses as smoothly as possible.
How we can help you
Our specialists can provide all the advice you need in relation to construction contracts including advising on the appropriate industry standard form contract (and selecting the professionals to be instructed under the agreement), drawing up bespoke provisions or drafting a bespoke contract tailored to meet a client’s specific requirements. We can provide ongoing advice as the matter progresses, for example if a variation to the original contract is required.
We are here to help if problems arise under the contract including claims relating to delays, breach of contract or negligence claims against the contractor, sub-contractors or other professionals under the agreement. Construction contracts often contain strict provisions about how disputes should be resolved and provide short time limits for some remedies. If you have a construction dispute, you should seek legal advice as soon as possible.
