The article focuses on legalities of possession during construction works in Great Britain. There are essentially three types of possession over the course of a construction project, including exclusive possession by the contractor during construction, exclusive possession by the contractor, but allowing the employer to use part or all of the site or works, and Partial possession, which involves the employer taking possession of part of the works before the project has been fully completed.
