Event Details

Seminar 3 - Contractual disputes and debt recovery

If you have carried out construction work at the request of another, you are entitled to be paid for it. If a price has been agreed, you must be paid that price unless the agreement is unenforceable. Even without an enforceable price, you are virtually always entitled to be paid the fair value of the work that you do at someone else’s request.

However, being entitled to payment is one thing; getting hold of your money is quite another. For example, as effective as rapid pay dispute adjudication can be under the Construction Contracts Act 2004, there are some cases where it doesn’t apply. If your right to be paid is not properly secured before you start work on site and your principal becomes insolvent, you may find there is nothing left once the banks and secured suppliers have taken their cut.

Building and Energy Division invites you to join HHG Legal Group’s Murray Thornhill, director, and Daniel Morris, special counsel, to learn the best way to get paid in common construction scenarios; when adjudication may not work and why; and how to protect your payment rights if your principal becomes insolvent.
