Advising homeowners on building contracts in a post-COVID world - 3 March 2021 (On Demand)


The nature of the rampant property market means that more and more first home buyers are entering into building contracts as a way to get into the market, many of these first home buyers. Equally, established home owners are looking to build secondary dwellings as a way to maximise the value of their property.

These are consumers, not developers who are familiar with the building process, and need robust advice to understand the particular features of construction law.

The effects of COVID have also dramatically increased the risks to these home owners, in the form of delays and cost increases.

This webinar is a practical look at what to watch out for when reviewing building contracts on behalf of homeowners.

  • Common areas where things go wrong in building projects, and how to safeguard against these;
