Avoiding & managing disputes

Disputes in the building and construction industry are common and often challenging to avoid. But, as a Master Builders member, you have a team of specialist staff on hand to help you avoid and manage disputes.

The type of dispute will determine the best course of action.

The most common types of building related disputes are:

  • Technical disputes (including defects and quality of work/products)
  • Contractual disputes (including non-payment, project completion, extension of time, etc.).

How can Master Builders help

If you are in a difficult situation with a client, Master Builders can help you manage the dispute.

Call for help early

The sooner you call Master Builders for help, the better!
