Building Contracts


Davenports Law can look after all construction law matters from review of construction contracts, whether they are NZS approved contracts, residential building contracts issued by MBA, or simply something basic such as a contract for home renovations. We also have experience on advising on contentious payments under the Construction Contracts Act payment regime.

We are able to do all of this considering our wide-ranging clients that include construction companies, builders, developers, investors and others.

Whether it’s basic or complicated, we are here to handle any construction-related issue.

We also provide advice on the funding and security arrangements relating to construction and development.


Nick and the Property team are here to help you with all the legal aspects of your building contracts.
