Adjudication for Individuals

If you have been troubled by problems concerning a construction contract you are involved in with a trader, it’s possible for the dispute to be resolved through adjudication proceedings.


What is Adjudication?

Adjudication is a form of alternative dispute resolution that is mainly used by individuals to settle their disputes with traders in the construction industry. Adjudication is typically implemented during the following types of construction claims between a consumer and a trader:

  • Construction claims
  • Building contract disputes
  • Construction delay claims
  • Construction defect claims
  • When breach of contract has occurred
  • When payment problems have arisen

The adjudication process involves an outside third party (the adjudicator) coming in and making a decision, based on the evidence presented by both parties in the dispute.

Adjudication is the ideal method for settling construction disputes because a decision must be made within 28 days, making the resolution as smooth and simple as possible.
