The protection works regime under the Building Act 1993 and the Building Regulations 2018 is often misunderstood particularly given the short timeframes allowed under the Act.

Where protection works are proposed, it is important to immediately seek legal advice to ensure that your rights as an owner are protected. Our lawyers often represent clients during this process including where a dispute may arise and referred to the Building Appeals Board.

We also assist clients through the intricacies of the process including the requirements for insurance, dilapidation reports and access arrangements. Without the benefit of legal advice such matters may significantly delay projects.

Owners may also be entitled to their costs and expenses in this process where such expenses were necessarily incurred in assessing the proposed protection work and in supervising the carrying out of protection work.
