Hi there, generally construction contracts are governed under the Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996. However, under Part II, Section 106 the legislation specifically does not apply to contracts covering works with a residential occupier. A construction contract with a residential occupier means a construction contract which principally relates to operations on a dwelling which one of the parties to the contract occupies, or intends to occupy, as his residence. Therefore, if that is the case you can argue that this is not a construction contract and you still get the usual consumer protection under the Consumer Rights Act 2015. You have already been through adjudication but you can still go to court if needed to challenge them
