Building Construction, Leaky Buildings

Building regulation has proven to be a litigious area of law. Since the "leaky building crisis" and the Christchurch earthquakes people have turned to the Building Act to see how it can better address such issues. The current Government has been working through staged amendments to the Act with a view to providing a more robust regime.

For many who are facing the results of the failures in buildings under the previous regime, and perhaps dealing with leaky buildings, we have experience in all areas – from advising local authorities or developers facing claims through to helping building owners. Limitation periods are critical in this area and it is important to get the right advice on these. From mediated settlements through to representation in court, Brookfields has an experienced team who can help.

Brookfields has extensive expertise in this area and can provide expert advice to local authorities, companies, building practitioners and individuals where building compliance issues arise.
