About this book

Introduction

Examines the principles which govern civil liability for the construction of defective buildings. The book deals with the key questions of who can be sued if a building is defectively constructed; who can sue if a building is defectively constructed; and what damages are recoverable. Special emphasis is placed on the consumer aspect of liability for defective buildings, the relationship between contract and tort, and the increasing importance of European legislation.
