Construction law - Building law

Droit de la construction

A complex and technical field


Construction law is made up of a large number of legal rules, but also involves taking into account its practical aspect. This results in a complex and technical field where the intervention of lawyers with specific expertise is often necessary.
Between town planning law and real estate law, construction law constitutes a wide field and calls upon specific notions: work, completion, builder, subcontractor, guarantee of perfect completion, damage-work insurance, disorder , etc…
It obviously concerns the act of building, with all the issues that can be attached to this sensitive object, including the various existing guarantees.
This is a privileged sector for appraisal operations, requiring knowledge of the specific rules. CARNOT AVOCATS has real and regular experience in these particular procedures.
