Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0003831566, Hardcover)

The standard forms of construction contract contain clauses entitling either or both parties to terminate the contract on a variety of grounds. Some forms also contain provision for the employer to order suspension of the works, and in both cases the contract sets out what the parties' rights are. However, the legal principles involved are rarely grasped by those concerned, and decisions are often made with inadequate knowledge, frequently resulting in costly and time-consuming litigation. This practical book examines in detail the clauses in the standard forms of building and civil engineering contract against the background of the general law. It covers the topic in detail and includes discussion of related topics such as set-off insolvency and the parties; and rights at common law, with practical illustrations.
