Forms and Precedents

Under the Construction Contracts Act, parties are required to use specific forms in relation to progress claims, payment schedules, notices of adjudication and notices of suspension.  Failure to provide the required notice will have serious consequences.  It is essential therefore, that proper notice is given in the form prescribed by the Act.

Set out in this section are a series of template documents, which comply with the requirements of the Act, which you may download and use free of charge. This library is regularly updated to ensure our forms and precedents remain current and comply with any statutory amendments. As such, we would advise you to return to this page each time you wish to access any of these documents so that you can be sure you are using the most up-to-date version of the document.
