Litigation support for building disputes

If building disputes develop in your project, you may need the services of an experienced and suitably qualified building expert.

We have highly qualified consultants who specialize in providing balanced and reliable advice, and can act as independent expert witnesses in court or tribunal hearings.

Litigation support services 

  • Expert Witness reports for VCAT, Supreme Court, County Court and the Magistrates Court
  • Reports for submission for the Victorian Building Authority’s Building Appeals Board (BAB)
  • Building Notice Response Assistance
  • Reports which depict the condition of a property at a point in time.

Available for all aspects of the construction process, these reports contain detailed analysis of the building issues, and if required the estimated cost to rectify or complete.

Building Expert’s role

A Building Expert must adhere to the published codes of practice of the court or tribunal where the case is being heard. The codes require that the Expert’s paramount duty is to inform the court or tribunal with a technically astute and unbiased account of the issues at hand and to remain independent. 

An Expert is not an advocate for the client, but is an independent analyst of the technical issues.
