Residential Contruction Law - discount code

Former SoCLA director, Dr Matthew Bell, has published a new book, Residential Construction Law.

Co-authored with Philip Britton, and including specialist contributions by Deirdre Ní Fhloinn and Kim Vernau, it will be the first book to offer a systematic and analytical overview of the legal framework for residential construction law

The book is designed to be a comprehensive and practical guide to the existing law for construction professionals, as well as residents.

The book addresses two fundamental questions: prevention (what assurances can the law give buyers of homes that construction work will comply with minimum standards) and cure (what forms of redress can residents expect if they discover defects).

Invaluably, the book addresses these questions through a comparative study of the law in Australasia, the UK and Ireland. In doing so, it aims to give succinct statements of the applicable law which can assist professionals ‘on the ground’, and also put the legal principles in their broader context with an eye to reforms, and sharing perspectives of best (and also, far from best) practice across jurisdictions.

The book will be available in Australia and New Zealand from 23 September 2021. Pre-orders can be made now.

Bloomsbury Publishing is offering SoCLA members a 20% discount on the RRP of the book. To take advantage of this offer, order the book via our website and enter the code HART2021 when prompted upon checkout. Please note that this offer is for Australian and New Zealand orders only.
