Adjudication

Section 108 of the Construction Act 1996 gives a statutory right for either party in a construction contract to refer a dispute to Adjudication at any time.

The Adjudicator must be appointed within 7 days of a party referring the matter to Adjudication. The Adjudicator must reach a decision within 28 days of referral. An extra 14 days may be allowed if the referring party agrees or longer if both parties agree.

If you receive a Notice of Adjudication, it is vital that a robust response is put forward within the very tight timescale. Byrom Clark Roberts are able to provide a rapid response service when you or your company receive a Notice of Adjudication.
