Defective Work Claims [P039]

A defective work claims is the most common claim made by building owners against their building or construction contractor. The cost and consequences associated with resolving a defective work claim can be minimised if the contract is prepared for each individual project setting out effective and feasible methods of risk allocation together with clear obligations in relation to standards, quality and the reliance placed on the contractor's skill and expertise.

This paper canvases both contractual and common law aspects of making and defending claims for defective work.
