It has never been more important to seek help preparing for adjudication under the Building and Construction Industry Payments Act (“BCIPA”).
Monthly adjudication statistics published by the Queensland Building and Construction Commission (“QBCC”) for January 2016 indicate that approximately 31.5% of all adjudication applications made to QBCC are withdrawn before being referred to an adjudicator because of application validation issues. Additionally, 18% of all adjudication decisions released the adjudicator found that there was no jurisdiction.
Put another way, this means that approximately 40% of all adjudication applications made to QBCC do not result in any decision because of validation issues that could easily be avoided if expert help had been requested.
Claimants need to ensure that their applications tick all the boxes before being submitted, to avoid unnecessary disappointment and wasting of money on doomed adjudication applications.
