Are you a subcontractor or do you provide goods in the Building and Construction Industry?
We can advise you on an alternative procedure in both ACT and NSW where a “Payment Claim” can be made and strict procedures followed. In the event the matter is disputed, we will proceed to adjudication. The entire process under this Act is designed to be both efficient and expedient and is often a more cost effective alternative than issuing proceedings in a court. Once an adjudication decision is received, it can be registered in the ACT Magistrates Court, and all enforcement options are then available to you.
An alternative measure might be to issue a Statutory Demand. We can provide you with our fees for other debt recovery mechanisms upon request, including issuing a Statutory Demand, commencing proceedings under the Building and Construction Industry (Security of Payment) Act.
