Construction Contracts and Subcontractors
Building disputes in a commercial setting results in delays, costs – and stress. Any construction contract should spell out the exact terms of the agreement between the builder and subcontractor to avoid costly disputes.
However, if a builder chooses to delay payment or refuses to pay, you then need to understand your rights as a subcontractor in order to receive progress payments.
The Security of Payment Act (otherwise known as the SOP Act or Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act 2002) is specific legislation that is to ensure subcontractors have specific rights, protections and in essence are paid by builders.
