Sub-contractors may not realise that their agreement / contract with the main contractor constitutes a construction contract for the purposes of the Housing Grants Construction and Regeneration Act 1996 (the “Construction Act”). A majority of sub-contracts will constitute such a contract with the main exceptions being contracts for residential occupiers and contracts lasting less than 45 days.
Payment in the construction industry has been a hot-topic for many years. Whether it’s payment between employer and main contractor, or among main contractors and subcontractors, the chance of a dispute remains higher in construction than it does in most industries.
