Captiva Estates Ltd v Rybarn Ltd
Citation: BLR 66 TCC;  CILL 2333
Nature of case:
An option agreement on a residential development site was held to be a development agreement within the meaning of the Construction Contracts Exclusion Order 1998 and thus excluded from the operation of the adjudication provisions of the HGCR Act. It therefore followed that the adjudicator had no jurisdiction and the adjudication was invalid.
