Contracts entered into for building and construction have a high rate of disputes over payment.
A dispute will arise when there is an amount to be paid and a party refuses to pay either the whole or part of the payment. Fortunately for builders there is specific legislation to ensure they are paid in a timely manner. For developers, you need to realise that every invoice from a builder is a potential “payment claim” that requires immediate action if you disagree with the invoice.
Parties involved in disputes need to act fast as there are procedural rules and tight deadlines to lodge responses.
At Gorval Lynch, we respond quickly and have successfully brought disputes to a favourable end for our clients. If you’d like to discuss your matter with one of our partners, please give us a call to understand your case and what options you have.
