Why build with a Master Builder

Disputes during the building process

Unfortunately, problems can and do arise during the building process. However, in the event of a building dispute with a Master Builders member, Master Builders staff are on hand to help. They can help guide you and your builder through the dispute process and make recommendations on the best course of action to solve a disagreement or problem before it turns into a situation that requires a formal dispute management process.


One of the biggest causes of building disputes is poor contract documentation. Master Builders has produced a suite of residential building contracts that allocate risk fairly between the builder and customer.

If you are building or renovating, ask your building contractor to use a Master Builders contract, where Master Builders staff are on hand if requested to help members ensure contract documentation, including variations, is prepared accurately and in accordance with the law. Master Builders can also assist if contractual questions arise during the building process.
