Why, oh why(!) does NEC not provide for a contractor’s right of suspension on late or non - payment???
It’s a statutory right so you don’t need an express clause to be able to do it. Just give notice that unless you are paid within 7 days you will suspend at the expiry of the 7 days.
Ah! We are in South Africa. Calls for a Z clause then.
or a change in the law. Z clause needed.
Indeed! An attempt was made to do this some time age. The State Law Advisor opined that it would be unconstitutional!(?). C’est la droit.
