In the event of a contractual termination, there may arise situations where a contractor's tools, equipment or materials are withheld at site and used by the employer or replacement contractor even after the termination of the contract. This may be expressly provided for under the contract, and will likely be for the purpose of reducing any delay and cost to the employer of having to source for replacement tools, equipment or materials. However, the issue of whether a contractor's claims for such post-termination use could fall within the adjudication scheme under SOPA remained undecided in the Singapore courts till now.
