If one party to a construction contract does work which is defective, the other party is allowed by law to ′set off′, or deduct, a sum required to make good that defect. This happens frequently in construction contracts and regularly involves large sums of money and disputes and litigation. It is a complex area of the law with a number of cases, as well as the contractual provisions themselves, prescribing a party′s right of set–off. This book clearly describes the law and looks in detail at the provisions of the main building and civil engineering contracts.
