Q: Can the owner claim for damages if it is not completed within the contract period?

 

A: A licensed barrister said that the legal responsibility of the owner and the decoration company is based on the project contract. If the completion date is specified in the contract, and the decoration company fails to complete the delivery on time, it may be a breach of the contract, and the owner can claim compensation from the other party for the extension of the project. Derived losses, including hotel rentals, etc.

 

 

 

Q: Do I need to consider the reasons for project delays?

 

A: The answer is yes. The owner mainly considers the factors of project delay. If the project is delayed due to uncontrollable factors, such as the delay in the transportation of decoration materials and furniture, the owner has no reason to deduct the decoration fee. Therefore, the owner must first clarify the reason for the delay of the project. If there is evidence that the other party deliberately delays the project, in case the other party takes legal action to recover the decoration cost, the owner also has reasons to make a defense, and may even claim against the other party for compensation. If the amount claimed is less than HK$75,000, the owner can file a claim with the decoration company in the Small Claims Tribunal.

 

 

 

Q: How do I know if the compensation plan is reasonable?

 

A: When the owner signs the contract with the decoration company, the completion date should be clearly specified, and the compensation plan for overdue completion should be clearly stated. However, since the compensation is legally compensatory rather than punitive, the compensation amount should be based on a well-founded estimate. Otherwise, there is a chance that it will constitute unfair contract terms, which will affect future claims.

Project: Renovation unfinished

AddressKornville

Details: After the decoration company undertook the project and received the deposit, the construction was delayed, and the completion date was delayed again and again. After the completion, the owner found that the workmanship was not good, did not meet the general delivery standards, and the materials could not be provided according to the contract requirements. Therefore, the owner failed to pay the remaining contract amount in accordance with the contract, and the decoration company subsequently claimed against the owner for the remaining payment. The owner thought it was unreasonable, so he hired the company to conduct an assessment and write an expert report on site.
