It is occasionally necessary to determine the law applicable to a building contract where it is not expressly selected. The selection of a law governing building contracts will be determined by the rules relating to the choice of the applicable law or proper law of the contract1. If the law has to be inferred then the law of the country where the building works are to be carried out will normally be the proper law unless there are circumstances which will impute to the parties an intention that some other law will apply2
