Letter of Demand
When you’re owed payment for construction work or provided goods and services, our services kick-start with a formal Letter of Demand. This crucial step is designed to swiftly resolve payment issues without resorting to court actions.
Leveraging the Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act 1999 (NSW), we help you issue compliant Payment Claims. This ensures timely and consistent payment for your construction work and related goods or services, even when contract provisions for progress payments are absent.
If disputes arise over payment schedules or delays, we guide you through the Adjudication process under the Security of Payment Act. This can expedite resolutions before the need for court proceedings.
Tribunal and Court
When legal action becomes necessary, we support you through NCAT or court proceedings. We assist in drafting Statements of Claim and enforcing judgement debts, navigating the complex legal landscape efficiently and in compliance with all regulations and deadlines.
Each service draws from over 13 years of construction law expertise, offering you the best path to debt recovery.
