Subscribe to Annotated Act

A subscription to the NSW Annotated Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act is an invaluable resource for any person preparing or responding to high value and/or complex adjudication matters. The service connects to on-line databases so the full text of court decisions is instantly available.

All Adjudicate Today adjudicators are encouraged to contribute their views to improving and expanding the service and utilising it in preparing their determinations.

Can you name the cases that answer these questions?

  • lawyers ability to receive service of documents;
  • validity of a payment claim which is served by fax and may come over several faxes;
  • which errors by an adjudicator will render the decision void;
  • whether the fact that a claimant is pursuing a civil court remedy at the same time as an action under the Act precludes the application proceeding.

If not, consider subscribing to the service and save yourself days of research time.

The service sets out each provision of the NSW Act and provide a commentary on the case law which is applicable. Additionally there is a section for decisions which don't fit neatly under any particular provision as well as an index of all cases. Every word of the service, including case names and references, are instantly searchable allowing instant recall of the information and/or cases sought.

The service is designed to be run on an internet connected computer so all cases may be directly accessed from on-line databases. No more endless searching for that decision which you know covers the issue!

The service is published approximately ten times per year and is revised to include the latest court decisions and a brief explanation of the effect of those decisions. The service is distributed by email to subscribers in easy to use PDF format.

The author of the annotated service is Scott Pettersson, an experienced lawyer and practicing adjudicator on the Adjudicate Today panel. Prior to joining us, Scott was Publishing Director of the Law Book Co and CEO of LEADR. In this later capacity, he reviewed all adjudication determinations to ensure typographical, grammatical and the occasional legal frolic could be identified and reconsidered by the adjudicator.

The annotations to the Act are not and should not be construed as representing legal advice. The general guide to legal principles at the end of the legislation is the personal view of the author. As appropriate, the views of other adjudicators have been considered in preparing this service but final responsibility remains with the author. While the service is intended to be of assistance, if you have any doubt or require professional assistance, this service is not a substitute for independent and expert legal advice. However we strongly recommend that legal advice be sought from practicing construction law professionals.
