Construction Debt Recovery
For building and construction contractors in Katoomba and its surrounding areas like Katoomba Town Centre, Leura, South Katoomba, North Katoomba, and Katoomba Falls, unpaid dues can be a common challenge.
Several avenues are available to reclaim what’s owed to you, such as:
- Dispatching a letter of demand
- Employing statutory demands
- Participating in alternative dispute resolutions, including mediation
- Submitting for adjudication under the Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act 1999 (NSW)
- Turning to NSW tribunals or courts for redress
Should you require aid in recovering debts from a principal or head contractor, Contracts Specialist’s debt recovery lawyers are here to assist.
Letter of Demand
For disagreements over payment schedules or if payments lag, we shepherd you through the adjudication procedure under the aforementioned Act. This pre-court step expedites resolutions.
Tribunal and Court
If required, we support you in pursuing the legal avenue via the NCAT or court actions, helping craft your Statement of Claim and enforcing judgement debts. Our proficiency guarantees seamless navigation through the intricate legal milieu, abiding by all pertinent regulations and deadlines.
