Defective construction work - whether it is inadequate design or faulty workmanship, or a combination of the two - is a frequent cause of legal disputes. It can involve not only the client, designer (architect or engineer) and contractor, but also on occasions the developer and his tenants, who will not be contractually linked to the designer or contractor. The situation is therefore frequently complicated.

This book will examine the rights and obligations of all parties, and will include important recent case law and statutory provisions, including the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act.
