Total M and E Services v ABB Building Technologies Ltd

Citation: 87 Con LR 154 TCC and [2002] EWHC 248

Nature of case:
This decided that orally agreed variations of the same type as those provided for in a sub-contract could constitute an agreement in writing for the purposes of s.107 HGCRA.  The bar in the Scheme on award of costs was upheld.  The potential inability of a claimant to repay an award is not always a bar to summary judgment.  This was understood to be subject to appeal.
