The new edition of this highly regarded title explains how the principles and procedures of insolvency law are applied in the construction sector. As well as setting out the legal principles clearly and concisely, it looks at how the law might deal with specific facts and offers solutions to practical problems specific to the construction industry.

This edition is fully up to date with the impact of the recession and draws on recent case law across all UK and Commonwealth jurisdictions, especially Australia and New Zealand, including many unreported cases and those unfamiliar to UK practitioners.

  • Looks at the interaction between the Insolvency Act 1986 and the Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996 and how this is reflected in case law
  • Looks at the security function of an adjudication decision, and the relation between adjudication and insolvency enforcement procedures
  • Lays out the ways in which contractual and procedural remedies take effect as security for payment or performance
  • Describes the security devices available as protection against insolvency and how they interact and support one another
  • Discusses the problems which occur when equitable concepts such as the trust are grafted onto complex construction contracts
  • Includes detailed analysis of technical areas such as assignment, novation, trust, and guarantee
  • Explores the interface with other areas of law where appropriate such as equity, property, disputes, and directors’ liability
  • features a wealth of case law form the UK and common-law jurisdictions, in particular, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Malaysia as well as Ireland
