Recover retention money – Help and advice for Specialist Contractors, Trade Contractors and Subcontractors.

If you cannot recover retention money then help is at hand because our retention consultants have been providing construction retention advice and helping Specialist Contractors, Trade Contractors and Subcontractors to collect retentions for over 30 years.

As a Specialist Contractor you will know how frustrating, time consuming and gut wrenchingly stressful it can be claiming retention money. And as retentions can become a substantial proportion of money that’s owing to you, being unable to recover construction retention can have a devastating impact on your cash flow.

If you do not understand retention law and the Contractor is not paying your retention, then all manner of unwanted consequences can follow:

“What am I going to do if I can’t pay the wages bill at the end of the week?

“ My suppliers are putting me on stop.”

“Everyone will think I’m a failure!”.

“It’s all my fault.”

All this can make you feel small and fearful of what the future might hold.

How We Can Help You

We specialise in construction retention law, giving advice and dealing with construction retention disputes, especially if the Contractor is not paying their subcontractors for retentions.
