Conference Workshop 2c

Tuesday 26 January 2016 14.30

2C Are you overpaying under your contract and can you do anything about it?

Government restrictions on rents have made it crucial that housing providers watch every penny they spend. Research has shown that most providers are paying their contractors somewhere between 5% and 30% more than their contract says. In this workshop we will cover:

  • Common areas of overpayment and cost overruns
  • How work is valued under construction contracts and the "interim" and "final" payments processes
  • Possible tactics when an overpayment is discovered
  • Construction Act payment notices, pay less notices and relevant case law
