Bannermans Lawyers understands the frustrations and concerns when owners discover building defects.

Our goal is always to resolve your defects in a timely and cost-effective manner, however this is not always the case with all law firms. Not all law firms understand that sometimes the best outcome doesn’t require a fight. When engaging a lawyer/legal team to assist with a defects matter make sure to keep a look out for the following to ensure the best possible result and approach.

  • Ensure you use a reputable strata lawyer who has experience in dealing with these types of matters.
  • Ask if your lawyer will guide you with recommendations and opinions and will not just ask for your instructions on matters you don’t understand.
  • Ask if your lawyer will provide you with regular updates including cost updates.  An experienced defects lawyer will be able to offer pragmatic advice on individual cases according to their needs. This has the potential to significantly reduce your legal and even expert fees.
  • Ensure your lawyer understands the technical concepts in an expert report, to be able to provide the best advice to you on the appropriate way forward.
  • Ensure they can assist with engaging and getting good advice from the correct experts.
