Adjudication remains the quickest, safest and most economic way of pursuing a construction debt. Clients are however concerned as to the costs of adjudication bearing in mind that those costs cannot be recovered from their opponent even if the adjudication is successful.
We are now able to offer fixed price adjudication. We will charge the following for the preparation, issue and conduct of adjudication proceedings
- For claims up to £25,000 we will charge £3500 plus VAT plus disbursements.
- For claims between £25,000 and £100,000 we will charge £5000 plus VAT plus disbursements.
- For claims between £100,000 and £200,000 we will charge £7500 plus VAT plus disbursements.
- For claims over £200,000 we will agree a fixed price for the preparation, issue and conduct of adjudication proceedings.
The fixed-price will apply once a decision has been made to proceed by way of adjudication and does not include work before that decision is made which may for example concern the service of notices, initial correspondence between the parties, advice on the preparation of the claim etc.
