John Starr considers the amount of detail required in an interim payment application

There has been a considerable amount of case law recently concerning the degree of openness and transparency required in a payment application or default interim payment notice under the payment regime in the Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996 (as amended) (the Act). Only last month, I wrote about the case of Surrey and Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust v Logan Construction (South East) Ltd [2017], where a distinction was drawn between the amount of transparency required in an interim payment notice (which must be unambiguous) and that required in a pay less notice (where some degree of ambiguity appears to be permitted).
