Liquidated Damages: Commercial Certainty Restored

The use of liquidated damages as a sole remedy for contractor delay is a well-established mechanism in the construction industry. It is designed to provide certainty for both employer and contractor in relation to the financial effects of the contractor’s culpable delay. The employer does not need to prove its loss caused by the contractor’s late completion, and the contractor knows the exact financial implications of its own actions, therefore giving both sides the certainty that they require in this scenario. Unfortunately, for a period of time recently, the Court of Appeal threw the liquidated damages mechanism into some considerable doubt in circumstances where the Contractor’s employment under the contract has been terminated.

Forfeiture for rent arrears

We were instructed on behalf of a commercial landlord who was seeking to take back possession of its premises because the tenant was not paying rent. The tenant was in substantial arrears, but was continuing to carry on a restaurant business from the premises. From the grant of the lease, some 2 years before, the tenant had always been late paying rent and the landlord was always chasing for payment and had finally lost patience. The landlord sought our advice as to how it could forfeit the lease.
