Getting paid when a payment or pay less notice is not issued.

Since the Local Democracy Economic Development and Construction Act 2009 came into effect in October 2011 ‘smash and grab’ adjudications have become popular. These are based on the payer having to pay the notified sum in the application for payment in the absence of a payment or pay less notice, therefore no need to establish the correct value of the work.

As little evidence needs to be provided, adjudication can be commenced quickly and completed at modest cost.

It is important to know what is required to be successful in adjudication.

What you need to know

  • Current provisions introduced in the Local Democracy Economic Development and Construction Act 2009 which amended the Housing Grants Construction and Regeneration Act 1996 (ie amended Construction Act)
  • This provides consequences from failing to give a payment notice if you are a paying party under a construction contract
  • This may result in the payer being obliged to pay the amount of an application for payment
  • A large number of ‘smash and grab’ adjudications are resulting in decisions that require paying parties to pay more than the value of the work carried out
  • There are a number of recent judgments that affect the application of the provisions of the Act
