VBA – Victorian Building Authority – Victoria Building Disputes

Victorian Building Authority

Just Law deal with every aspect of building dispute litigation and building contracts. Whether it is a domestic building dispute or a commercial construction dispute, Just Law have been in the game for over 20 years and as such, have helped countless builders, corporations, and homeowners resolve their building disputes.
Luckily, and although issues still arise daily, keeping legal practitioners such as Just Law in business, there are important governing bodies that regulate building practices here in Victoria that need to be strictly adhered to. The Victorian Building Authority (or VBA) for example, was established under the Building Act 1993 to regulate the building and plumbing industries in order to protect all the parties involved in any particular project. As a part of handling all the facets of building dispute litigation, Just Law will always operate and offer the right legal advice within the parameters of the VBA, as it’s a highly effective authority that has a number of legally-reinforced functions. Primarily, the Victorian Building Authority regulates all building and plumbing practitioners to ensure the achievement of efficient and competitive building and plumbing industries across Victoria, and at Just Law, we are very familiar with such a requirement.

Some of the VBA’s other services include:

  • responding to general enquiries about the building and plumbing industries
  • registering, licensing and disciplining plumbers in Victoria
  • registering and disciplining building practitioners
  • issuing owner-builder certificates of consent
  • undertaking inspections, investigations, and audits to enforce compliance with all the relevant legislation
  • working with other agencies and regulators to ensure building and plumbing practitioners are compliant and that consumers are protected
Just Law will fight for you should you need a law firm in your corner during the building process, and handle everything from settlements to potential tribunal and court appearances. Not only this, but Just Law have had extensive history and dealings with the VBA, and as such, know all the ins and outs when dealing with such a required governing body. If you need legal advice related to the VBA, Just Law is ready to assist you.
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!
