Home Warranty claims

Urban Lawyers has extensive experience dealing with the Victorian Managed Insurance Authority and other insurers in the courts and the Tribunal. We can advise you on your rights to make claims for defective building works, structural defects or incomplete works.

You may claim on the domestic building insurance scheme only if your builder has died, disappeared or become insolvent or, from 1 July 2015, you have obtained a judgment against your builder and the judgment has not been met.

In a domestic building situation, your rights and obligations are largely regulated by the Building Act 1993, the relevant Ministerial Orders made under that Act and the Domestic Building Contracts Act 1995.

Urban Lawyers can prepare the claim for you and then deal with the Authority (or other insurer) to negotiate a settlement so you can put the matter behind you. If a claim is denied for any reason, or if the proposed settlement amount is not satisfactory, we can take the matter further for you to either the Court or to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal.
