Bush lawyers abound in the construction industry leading to common misconceptions about a number of important issues. In this seminar our real lawyers will address these misunderstandings and clearly explain what the actual state of law and practice is and how to protect yourself in the future. We will look at:

Misconception 1: Retentions linked to practical completion (PC) under the head contract don't have to be released until PC under the head contract

Misconception 2: I can recover liquidated damages previously deducted under the contract by using the Security of Payment Act

Misconception 3: I've suspended work under the Security of Payment Act. The principal has taken the remaining works out of my hands. I have no recourse

Misconception 4: If I deny the builder the opportunity to fix the defects I lose my damages claim

Further information including registration for the seminar can be found below. We look forward to seeing you there.

Kind regards,

Stephen Natoli
