Just to be clear are you saying that if the contractor does not make an application the employer is not duty bound to issue their own assessment in compliance with the due date? thanks.

Are subcontractors working for the contractor able to tie up retention payment dates for their subcontractors to their contractor retention date. Example, retention released at PC for the subcontractor so they paid the subcontractor carrying out the works once they receive the monies. Is this legal due to the HGRA amendment? @steven.evans13 @stevencevans

No, any payment under one contract made conditional upon a certificate or action in another is made void by HGCRA (providing the contract is a construction contract as defined by HGCRA). If the contract contains a clause making it conditional, then the appropriate provisions in the Scheme for Construction Contracts will apply instead
