Edenbooth Ltd v Cre8 Developments Ltd
Citation: All ER (D) 20 TCC; (2008) CILL 2592
Nature of case:
The claimant succeeded in getting enforcement of an adjudication decision when the defendant failed to pay. The defendant was a company which engaged the claimant to do work to the adjoining houses of two of the directors of the company. The defendant argued that it was a ‘residential occupier’ under s.106(1)(a) of the HGCR Act and therefore not subject to the adjudication regime by reason of the exception. The court rejected this argument. The defendant’s argument that the speed with which it was required to produce information in adjudication was contrary to natural justice was also rejected.
