Termination of contract, corporate recovery and insolvency

This first edition guidance note reviews termination of contract, corporate recovery and insolvency primarily from the perspective of a chartered surveyor with a commensurate level of specialism. It also deals with the main issues encountered in and associated with a construction project. Generally, the guidance note advises on the issues and also suggests when further specialist assistance may be required either legally or technically.

This is part of the RICS QS and construction standards (the 'Black Book').

Please be aware that this guidance note contains some material which is in the process of being updated for revisions to the CDM Regulations, RIBA Plan of Work, and updates to the JCT, NEC and FIDIC suites. Members are made aware of these impending revisions in order that they first check the most up to date position before electing to act in accordance with this guidance document.
