If your scaffolding company has ever not been paid an interim or final account, received threats of non-payment, or received payment that is less than was agreed for a scaffolding contract, this webinar is for you.

What the webinar will cover:

Speakers, Sam Bawden, Lawrence Pearce and Chrissie Parkes, Construction Law specialists, will talk in detail about:

  • The unique payment mechanism that applies to scaffolding contracts
  • Common mistakes and misconceptions about the different types of payment notices and their use/effect
  • Onerous payment clauses that scaffolding companies will want to avoid (prepare to be surprised by our least favourite extra hire and termination clauses, amongst others)
  • When scaffolders can suspend works to leverage payment
  • Other tactics for securing payment – what you can and can’t do
  • What happens when it ‘goes legal’ (a discussion of the different legal options available and the commercial advantages and disadvantages of each one)

Put your questions to the speakers:

As part of the webinar, attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions of the specialist speakers. If you have questions about getting paid, or are facing a current issue, raise a question at the end of the webinar. If you are facing an immediate payment issue, we would recommend you do not wait for the webinar and contact our specialist Construction Department on 01206 593933 or email scaffolding@holmes-hills.co.uk.
