Retention; another time consuming job that often gets left for a rainy day! Wouldn’t you like someone else to look after that too?
Keeping tabs on retention money owed to you by main contractors can be a pain in the neck, and that’s putting it mildly! This money is rarely paid back to you without some sort of chase being made by you and keeping track of the various due dates can also be a nightmare.
I can take care of all of this for you!

Experience has taught me that you need to chase for this money, and keep chasing as very few main contractors will pay back the first 50% of retention withheld at the end of the build, as they should, preferring to keep hold of it all until the one year defects period has been reached. I guess that’s because it creates less work for them? However, it’s rare that they pay this money back to you of their own accord! You have to chase, and then amazingly a few cheques will appear, and then you need to chase again, and a few more will arrive, and so on, but this takes time but its also YOUR MONEY!
