Payment Mechanisms and Construction Contracts: The Payment Application, Payment Notice and Pay Less Notice

23 May 2019

Quigg Golden Belfast, 18-22 Hill Street, Cathedral Quarter, Belfast, BT1 2LA

15:30 - 17:30

The Construction Contracts Order 1997 introduced a set of minimum requirements for payment mechanisms in construction contracts.

These provisions included payment applications, payment notices and the infamous pay less notice, which have since been adopted by most standard forms of contract.

What does all this mean for clients, contractors and sub-contractors?

This 90 minute seminar will detail the payment mechanisms envisioned by the Order and what construction professionals need to be aware of to avoid the draconian consequences of failure.

It could save a lot of time, money and hassle, if it came to avoiding a dreaded ‘smash and grab’ adjudication.

Topics covered include:

  • Payment mechanisms
    • Payment Applications
    • Payment notices
    • Pay less notices
    • Timeframes
  • Relevant case law
  • Substance, form and intent
  • Consequences of failure
