General construction law

What are the main sources of law that govern and regulate contracts for the design or carrying out of building works?



In general, the French legal system is based on constitutional laws, legislative codes and statutes. In particular, construction law is contained in the French Civil Code and the French Housing and Construction Code.

Other types of law, such as employment law or environmental law, may apply depending on the use of the building to be erected.
