AREAS OF LAW (Civil) construction law

CONSTRUCTION LAW

Construction law has to do with the relationships between parties such as principals, contractors, neighbours, architects, financiers, project developers and the government. Due to the variety of the parties involved there are all kinds of rules and regulations. These rules can be complex.
In-depth knowledge is therefore essential. Clients not only ask Amstel Advocaten to assist during legal proceedings, but actually at the start and during a construction project as well. Numerous legal proceedings can be prevented in this way.

Amstel Advocaten advises and litigates to resolve civil law issues relating to construction law. We deal with cases in the field of:

  • arbitration
  • the building contract (under control of a third party)
  • liability
  • (hidden) defects
  • interim injunction proceedings and building stops
  • property law (servitudes, buildings and ground leases)
  • collecting unpaid bills
  • guarantees
  • foundation repairs
  • common ownership and permissions

It is striking how many building conflicts can be resolved by negotiation. As far as we are concerned that should be the initial objective because it will avoid costly legal proceedings. NB! Arbitration is often agreed in contracts despite arbitration proceedings being expensive. You can negotiate this out of the general terms and conditions by opting for legal proceedings rather than arbitration in the event of disputes.

In order to keep our specialist knowledge in this legal area up-to-date, we are a member of the Association for Building Law Attorneys [Vereniging voor Bouwrecht Advocaten] (VBR).
