Resolving a Dispute

TAS Building disputes

The object of the Tasmanian Building and Construction Industry Security of Payments Act 2009 is to ensure that a person is entitled to receive, and is able to recover, progress payments if the person undertakes to carry out construction work, or supply related goods and services, under a construction contract.

This Act ensures that a person is entitled to receive a progress payment by granting a statutory entitlement to such a payment regardless of whether the relevant construction contract makes provision for progress payments.

The process of adjudication under this Act begins when the Claimant serves a payment claim on the Respondent. Timeframes are very strict under the act and if the Claimant fails to meet these timeframes, they risk the application being deemed invalid.

Resolution Institute has provided flowcharts to assist both parties through the adjudication process to ensure that there is a good understanding of the timeframes under the legislation which are dependent on the actions taken by either party. Parties should also be familiar with the methods of serving documents.
