Payment applications, pay less notices and levying or deducting liquidated damages

18 August 2015

The Technology and Construction Court provided guidance, in the case of Henia Investments Inc v Beck Interiors Limited, on payment applications, the content of pay less notices and pre-conditions to an employer deducting or claiming liquidated damages in the context of a JCT Standard Building Contract (2011 edition).

Macfarlanes acted for the employer, Henia Investments Inc, which was successful in the case.

The guidance is of interest to anyone entering into or administering building contracts.
