Letter of Demand
Prompt Debt Recovery Begins Here
A Letter of Demand serves as a formal request for the repayment of a debt arising from construction work, goods, or services. It acts as a crucial initial step, often resolving payment issues promptly and amicably, potentially circumventing the need for legal actions.
Securing Timely Payments
Leveraging the provisions of the Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act 1999 (NSW), we specialise in crafting compliant Payment Claims. Even in the absence of progress payment provisions in your contract, we ensure you receive prompt and regular payments for your construction work and related services.
Swift Resolution in Your Favour
In situations where disputes arise over payment schedules or delays, we guide you through the Adjudication Application process under the Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act 1999 (NSW). This step can precede court proceedings, facilitating a faster resolution in your favour.
Tribunal and Court
Navigating the Legal Path
When necessary, we provide comprehensive support for navigating the legal route. This includes representation in the NCAT (New South Wales Civil and Administrative Tribunal) or court proceedings. Our expertise ensures the efficient handling of legal complexities, including drafting your Statement of Claim and enforcing judgement debts.
