Construction Debt Recovery
In the dynamic field of building and construction, contractors frequently face situations where payments due remain unsettled. Fortunately, there are several avenues available to recover the money owed to you, including:
- Issuing a letter of demand to the concerned party, outlining the details of the debt
- Utilising statutory demands as a formal request for debt payment
- Engaging in alternative dispute resolutions such as mediation to find a middle ground
- Applying for adjudication under the Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act 1999 (NSW), a legislative pathway designed to ensure swift debt recovery
- Seeking assistance through NSW tribunals or courts for legal adjudication
