This is a concise, case-based guide to all aspects of defects in buildings, for those practitioners who need to understand the law and practice in their everyday work. This guide deals comprehensively with : what patent and latent defects are; rights and obligations under defective liability clauses; how defects can affect practical and substantial completion; the Defective Premises Act 1972; the implications of defects for surveyors and valuers; when a defect may, or may not, give rise to a cause of action in tort; legal concepts such as "temporary disconformity" and "complex structure theory"; and relevant limitation periods and the implications of the Latent Damage Act 1986.
