DBDRV Mediation Process – Building Disputes Victoria
Domestic Building Dispute Resolution Victoria
There are 2 common standard form contracts used in the commercial construction contracts
Domestic Building Dispute Resolution Victoria is a state government service required to be used by an owner or builder prior to going to VCAT with their dispute.
DBDRV can be very frustrating due to the large backlog of work it seems to have: this adds considerable delay to the process however it may lead to settlement of your dispute.
Just Law can represent you throughout the DBDRV process and we find the DBDRV speeds up their processes when lawyers are acting for people!
You need legal advice prior to going to DBDRV anyway, so you know the merits, the strength and weakness of your case PRIOR to settling at DBDRV else you don’t know whether you are agreeing to a good deal or not. Or whether you are being uncommercial or unrealistic in your expectations.
If the case goes to hearing Just Law will co-ordinate and instruct all necessary experts who we choose for their experience and expertise and high quality analysis and evidence. James Gray does all his own advocacy, so you don’t have to pay 2 lawyers at a hearing!
