On certifying Completion, is it possible to have more than one defects date?
We have recently been made aware that the defect date, stated within CDP1, is different dependent upon which element of work it relates to, i.e.:
52 weeks for xxx, 104 weeks for xxx, 156 weeks for xxx... after Completion of the whole of the works.
This inclusion within CDP1 is presenting some confusion / debate as to when the remainder of the retention is released? and if it contractually correct to issue multiple Defect Certificates?
There is also no inclusion within the contract for sectional completion.
