Letter of Demand
A Letter of Demand is your initial formal step in urging the repayment of a debt arising from construction work or the provision of goods and services. It plays a crucial role in resolving payment issues promptly, often without the need for court intervention.
Leveraging the provisions of the Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act 1999 (NSW), we assist you in issuing compliant Payment Claims. This helps secure prompt and regular payments for your construction work and related goods or services, even when progress payment provisions are absent in your contract.
In cases where payment schedules are disputed or payments are delayed, we guide you through the Adjudication Application process under the Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act 1999 (NSW). This step can expedite resolutions before resorting to court proceedings.
Tribunal and Court
When legal action becomes necessary, we provide support for navigating the legal route through the NCAT (New South Wales Civil and Administrative Tribunal) or court proceedings. We assist in drafting your Statement of Claim and enforcing judgement debts, ensuring efficient navigation of the complex legal landscape while adhering to all regulatory requirements and timelines.
Each of our services is meticulously crafted to offer you the most effective pathway to recover your debts, underpinned by our extensive 13-year experience in construction law.
