It is important to cover all aspects of the building work on your home to safeguard against any potential failure of the builder. Nobody wants to be left out of pocket for incomplete work and so it is essential that if you are undertaking the services of a builder to complete work that will exceed $16,000 on your Victoria home, you obtain the necessary builders warranties that will insure you against damages up to $300,000 and provide cover on non-structural defects for two years.
Here at Boutique Lawyers, we are the best construction and building law firm operating in Melbourne and serving all of Victoria. Our comprehensive knowledge of this sector is second-to-none and our ability to focus the collective efforts of our legal team and lawyers means that we offer a service that our clients can rely on to deliver the results they need, and without having to wait in suspense to know what legal fees they will be faced with.
Having a fixed-fee pricing plan in place ensures that you can budget with confidence for the work that we carry out on your behalf. Neither you nor our team will have to waste time or energy watching the clock and documenting each hour worked while we engage in pre-litigation and pre-court work, and we have found that this frees up the process and makes for a much more beneficial and focused approach to getting the job done.
What A Builders Warranty Means
Builders warranties are essential there to make sure that any and all work that is completed on the property is done so in a proper manner and is in complete compliance with the contract that was drawn up and the specifications agreed upon.
They also make sure that unless an alternative agreement is in place between the homeowner and the builders, all materials that used to complete the project will be new and fit for the purposes that they are intended for. What’s more, the warranty is there to safeguard the schedule and ensure that the work is done in accordance with the applicable laws.
Here at Boutique Lawyers, we often work with owner builders and it is worth noting that while they may build the premises with the intention of living in it, should they choose to sell it in the future, they too are also required to provide warranty insurance for the benefit of the purchaser.
Homeowners warranties offer that little extra peace of mind that gives cover in the event of a builder dying, disappearing or leaving without having completed the work that they undertook.
Protecting Your Investment Now and in the Future
Given the complexities of planning that are essential when starting a building project, it makes sense to engage the services of a legal team that can help put the necessary safeguards in place that will protect your investment through the process and beyond.
Here at Boutique Lawyers, we are adept in terms of the completion of builders warranties not to mention all aspects of contract law. We are selective in terms of the work that we undertake and will only accept your business if we believe that we can achieve the outcome that you hope for.
However, with our team on your side, you can take your mind off the legal business and allow us to guide you through the complete process without having to sacrifice any peace of mind.
