Amstel Advocaten advises and litigates to resolve civil law issues relating to construction law. We deal with cases in the field of:
- the building contract (under control of a third party)
- (hidden) defects
- interim injunction proceedings and building stops
- property law (servitudes, buildings and ground leases)
- collecting unpaid bills
- 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).
