CCA Forms

Important new CCA forms

The following forms contain the mandatory information that must be provided for valid service under the Construction Contracts Act 2002 (as at 1 December 2015).

The wording of these forms is in accordance with the Construction Contracts Regulations 2003 (as at 1 December 2015)

Payment claims

For contracts entered into form 1 December 2015 every payment claim must be accompanied by a “Form 1” notice which sets out the payer’s rights and obligations when they receive a payment claim.

Prior to the Amendment Act the form 1 notice was required only where the payer was a “residential occupier”.

Download the Form 1 notice: CCA Form 1: Information that must accompany all payment claims (pdf) or CCA Form 1: Information that that must accompany all payment claims (MS Word)

NOTE: Payees must now enter the correct due date for payment, as payment claims must “state” rather than merely “indicate” the due date for payment.

Adjudication

For contracts entered into form 1 December 2015 every notice of adjudication must contain the wording of the “Form 2” notice which sets out the respondent’s rights and obligations in the adjudication proceedings.

Prior to the Amendment Act the form 2 notice was required only where the respondent was a “residential occupier”.

Transitional arrangements

For all contracts entered into from 1 December 2015

  • A payment claim without the Form 1 notice has no effect and will not be enforceable
  • A notice of adjudication that does not contain the wording of the Form 2 notice will have no effect,

For pre 1 December 2015 contracts

  • The new forms will be valid for existing “residential construction contracts”
  • The new forms may be used on commercial construction contracts, although they are not necessary
