Owners Corporation and Strata Litigation Experience

Construction Legal specialises in owners corporation and strata litigation and has acted for numerous lot owners, owners corporations and builders in residential building defects claims in all jurisdictions including the Tribunal (NCAT), District and Supreme Courts of New South Wales.

Depending on the factual and legal circumstances, legal liability may attract on the developer, builder, designer, owners corporation or lot owner. Our focus is to ensure our clients receive sound commercial advice from the outset and any disputes are resolved efficiently without the need for litigation (where possible). If litigation is ultimately commenced, our team at Construction Legal will manage the litigation to ensure judgment is obtained quickly and cost effectively.

In this regard, we assist owners corporations in all areas of residential building law ranging from legal advisory work on defects, working with Council on managing fire orders, debt recovery and highly complex litigation.

Our principal, Jessica Rippon has built a strong reputation in residential building law and has a keen interest in how the current regulatory landscape affects owners corporations. Some of our most recent work and news articles can be found below.
