Building Contracts Australia

One of the major causes of disputes in the building and engineering industry is inadequate contracts. The majority of standard forms available tend to promote the interests of one party at the expense of another. These standard forms are also sometimes inflexible, ambiguous and complicated. Each major contract has an introduction explaining its purpose and any special features. The precedents are set out in a clear and practical manner together with all necessary forms and attachments and commentary highlighting various important points. The recent addition of the Construction Law Handbook offers subscribers a valuable commentary tool for dealing with issues relating to the practice of construction law in Australia.
