November 14, 2022 at 17:43
The guide is designed to help everyone in the construction and building industry learn their rights and what they can do in case of a payment dispute with their employers
The Australian construction industry generates a whopping $360 billion in revenue and is expected to grow faster. However, this growth is hampered by payment claim disputes, making up 20% of the overall disputes in this industry.
If the contractors are not paid timely and fairly for their hard work, they'll stop the work at the risk of facing further losses. This is a serious issue as the construction crew, material vendors, and all stakeholders in a project need to be paid timely so they can take care of their families while they continue working. This is where they need a guide on how to get their rightly owed amount back, and the Ultimate Guide to the Security of Payments Act in Queensland 2022 can help them know their rights.
The SOP Act was established to protect contractors and builders from unlawful payment holds and ensure they are paid fully within an established timeline. The guide published by Construction Lawyers Brisbane under the SOP Act in Queensland goes into great detail about the claim process, requirements for making payment claims, schedule of payments, adjudication application and response, and many other questions that one might have related to the payment claims under the SOP Act in Queensland.
The guide also explains the different types of payment hold in detail, the right timeline for filing the claims, and the requirements for adjudication application for the best chances of winning the case.
Although the guide explains every requirement and the procedure in great detail, contractors still need a lawyer with experience in dealing with disputes in construction-legal-commercial space and help contractors get paid the due amount. The construction lawyer better understands the technicalities and nitty-gritty of the Payments Act. Plus, every dispute has different circumstances, so a legal consultant can study the case and prepare the best course of action for maximum winning chances. Construction Lawyers in Brisbane can help.
