Example text

O’Reilly [1978] 1 Lloyds Rep 595. See the first instance decision in Rees & Kirby Ltd v. Swansea City Council (1983) 25 BLR 129. 41 (1986) 6 Con LR 70. 40 21 Agreement for Minor Building Works (MW 98) a lump sum offer has been obtained based on drawings and/or specifications and/or schedules but without detailed measurements (in Scotland, bills of quantities are used). It is suggested that the Form is generally suitable for projects up to a value of £90,000 at 1998 prices. Contract value is not, however, the deciding factor, which is probably the complexity of the job.

In the context of the JCT 98 and IFC 98 Forms, these clauses have the opposite effect to what the architect probably intended. Instead of being limited in effect, the final certificate becomes conclusive evidence that all materials and workmanship are to the architect’s satisfaction. There is no obligation on the architect to express his approval of the work as it progresses, indeed he would be most unwise to do so. His approval cannot be implied through silence. g. 10. The Court of Appeal has muddied the waters by apparently ignoring this clause to give some weight to certificates issued at practical completion (qv) and making good of defects (see: Defects liability period)51.

It is therefore important to determine what acts fall within an agent’s usual or apparent authority. For example, the manager of a builders’ merchant’s depot may act for the owner in all matters connected with the business. Those dealing with him are not bound by any limitations placed upon his authority by his employer unless they have notice of those limitations. An agent’s primary duty is to see that he acts in his principal’s interests and he must not abuse his position. He is in a fiduciary (qv) relationship to his principal.
