In addition, the work must fall within the definition of "construction work" as laid out in s4 of the Act or "related goods and services" as laid out in s5 of the Act.

Please provide a copy of this contract or relevant extracts (s26(2)(b)). Please give each file uploaded on this page and subsequent pages a consecutive number and an identifying name.
If you have carried out relevant work under the Act you may serve a “payment claim” on the party who is liable to pay you. Details of how this should be done will usually be found in your contract. If your contract does not contain information about payment claims then the terms laid out in Schedule 1 Division 4 of the Act will be implied.

If you have made a payment claim, and it has either been disputed or not paid, then your eligibility to apply for adjudication will depend on whether a “payment dispute” has arisen. A definition of payment dispute can be found in s6 of the Act.
