We have an NEC 3 option A contract for which the Contractor went into Administration toward the end of the scheme. The Client had taken over a large part of the building but completion had not been certified.
We are now some 14/15 months past that original take-over date.
We have defects lists which have not been resolved as the Contractor went before they could be actioned, and so there is no formal certification of defects.
As PM’s for the contract we have subsequently presented the Administrator (in the Contractors absence) with our assessment of the Final Account).
The main question is are there any timescales within which the Administrator should be responding to anything we send them? We sent the Assessment of Final Account over 4 months ago, and the Administrator has been silent since then.
The Client is concerned how we can conclude these contracts - if it is even our place to conclude them, or are we completely at the behest of the Administrator and their timescales, although we don’t know what those timescales are.
