If you are thinking about building and renovating, there are a few things you need to know. The more informed you are, the less likely you are to find yourself in a building dispute.
Disputes are not unusual in construction and property development, and they need to be resolved quickly, cost effectively, and fairly.
The Building Practitioners Board (the Board) hears complaints made about the conduct of LBPs.
The responsibility for enforcing Building Act offences by non-LBPs is shared between the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (The Ministry) and Building Consent Authorities (BCAs).
