Construction Debt Recovery
In the construction industry, it is not uncommon to face situations where payments are overdue. Fortunately, there are several avenues available to recover the money owed to you, including:
- Issuing a letter of demand
- Utilising statutory demands
- Engaging in alternative dispute resolutions such as mediation
- Applying for adjudication under the Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act 1999 (NSW)
- Seeking assistance through NSW tribunals or courts
At Contracts Specialist, we are here to assist you in navigating these pathways effectively, serving Muswellbrook and the nearby areas of Denman, Muscle Creek, McCullys Gap, Castle Rock, and Sandy Hollow.
Letter of Demand
A letter of demand serves as a formal request urging the repayment of a debt owed for construction work executed and/or goods or services provided. This step is pivotal before initiating legal actions, aiming to resolve payment issues promptly, possibly without court intervention.
Tribunal and Court
If necessary, we stand by you in navigating the legal pathways through the NCAT or court proceedings, aiding in drafting your Statement of Claim and enforcing judgement debts, ensuring a smooth navigation through the complex legal landscape while adhering to all necessary regulations and time frames.
Leverage our guidance grounded in over 13 years of experience in construction law to find the best pathway to recover your debts.
