Scottish construction contracts

Construction contracts, permission and regulation in Scotland are not the same as in England and Wales. Differences in ownership of the material and processes for applying for permission are key.

An important principle for Scots law is to resolve disputes swiftly rather than to engage in long, drawn-out arguments. The methods for resolving disputes in construction contracts reflect this principle and should be taken into account.
