What is RETENTION?

The use of retention on construction projects is supported by the retention beneficiary (client) as it aids their cashflow. However there are a number of disadvantages for the debtor (contractor) when the agreed contract procedures are not adhered to.

RETENTION IS THE TEMPORARY WITHHOLDING OF MONEY ON CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS IN ORDER TO GUARANTEE PERFORMANCE.

DEPENDING OF THE FORM OF CONTRACT USED, RETENTION TYPICALLY RANGES FROM 2% TO A MAXIMUM OF 10% OF THE CONTRACT VALUE.

HALF OF THE RETENTION WITHHELD SHOULD BE RELEASED UPON ISSUE OF A COMPLETION CERTIFICATE BY THE ARCHITECT. THIS IS KNOWN AS THE 1ST MOIETY RELEASE OF RETENTION.

THE BALANCE OF RETENTION SHOULD TYPICALLY BE RELEASED BETWEEN 6 AND 24 MONTHS AFTER COMPLETION AND UPON ISSUE OF A FINAL CERTIFICATE BY THE ARCHITECT. THIS IS KNOWN AS THE 2ND MOIETY RELEASE.
