Final Account Dispute - Offices London

Metcalfe Briggs Surveyors’ client had commissioned an office refurbishment to a Central London investment property but were not satisfied that a fair and reasonable final account had been arrived at with the contractor.

We were asked to review the contract documents, the tender procedures and the contract administrator’s documentation.  On site we had to review the state of completion and standard of finish of the project.  With this knowledge our objective was to come to a view on the equitable level of the final account.

Metcalfe Briggs made an inspection and reviewed all the documentation in detail.  We then discussed matters with the contract administrator and the contractor.  From this we produced an independent final account, which successfully resolved the dispute.
