Adjudication and the Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996
In some cases the least contentious dispute resolution routes may prove to the most effective. The Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996 enables disputing parties to resolve the matter via adjudication.
The process involves the appointment of an adjudicator who is then charged with reaching a decision within 28 days. However, this process is likely to require legal advice as reports must be written and evidence submitted in order to substantiate the positions of the disputing parties. Examples of typical evidence include the opinions and reports of surveyors, architects and structural engineers.
