Letter of Demand
A Letter of Demand serves as a crucial initial step in debt recovery. It’s a formal request for repayment of outstanding debts related to construction work, goods, or services. This proactive approach often resolves payment issues swiftly and amicably, potentially avoiding costly court interventions.
Securing Your Payments under the Security of Payment Act
Leveraging the provisions of the Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act 1999 (NSW), we assist you in issuing compliant Payment Claims. This legal mechanism helps ensure prompt and regular payments for your construction work and associated goods or services, even when progress payment provisions are absent from the contract.
Streamlined Conflict Resolution
In cases where disputes arise over payment schedules or delayed payments, we guide you through the adjudication process under the Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act 1999 (NSW). This pre-court step facilitates faster conflict resolution, potentially sparing you from lengthy legal proceedings.
