Leeds City Council v Waco UK Ltd [2015] EWHC 1400 (TCC) – Hardwicke Chambers

Posted February 23rd, 2016 in construction industry, estoppel, local government, news, remuneration, time limits by sally

‘The TCC had to determine whether an interim payment application made 6 days before the specified contractual date was rendered invalid for being too early. The key issue was whether it was possible that consistent failures to adhere to the contractual payment provisions would create an estoppel which would prevent an out of time payment application from being found invalid. Although Edwards-Stuart J found that it was arguable there was an estoppel for applications made a few days after the contractual date, there was no such estoppel for applications made early and so the application was found to be invalid.’
