Renovating your home with peace of mind..

Experiencing bad workmanship problems? Or a payment dispute with your building contractor?

Is there any formal contract to begin with….or just verbal agreements and rough sketches?
Many unsuspecting home owners trustingly engage spurious contractors to carry out renovations and extensions to their homes. However, when things start to go wrong such as  inadequate construction works, defective workmanship, escalating additional variation order (claims), unfulfilled promises…what can you do?

What are your rights within your contractual agreement?

Before starting out your renovations, you need to ensure that a building contract is drawn up to document the agreed scope of work and the agreed cost and formally agreed upon between you and your contractor. Define the scope of works with detail drawings and plans.

Is there an approved building permit for renovations involving structural alterations? Are the plans prepared and endorsed by an architect or an engineer?

Get  professional help to properly document your requirements and to verify the building contractor’s capability before payment, to inspect and report on the progress of works to mitigate unfinished and defective works, to recommend remedial steps cost effectively and to prevent prolonged ugly disputes.

What Joint Management Body (JMB) / Management Corporation need to do?

With the enactment Building and Common Property (Maintenance and Management) 2007 (Act 663), the JMB is responsible to manage the common property until the issuance of strata titles. JMBs are now answerable to the property owners and residents on the property condition apart from the building accounts.

Most JMBs do not know where to start, what to do and what are the critical items to resolve – especially unresolved defects at the common property areas. 

We help JMB establish the building condition status and prioritise quickly what needs to be done cost-effectively for on-going maintenance, repairs and replacements.
