In Adjudication the normal position (under both the Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996, and the Local Democracy, Economic Development and Construction Act 2009, (the Construction Acts)) is that both parties are responsible for their own costs in the adjudication process irrespective of whether they ‘win, lose or draw’ the Adjudication. There can be exceptions to this normal position but those exceptions are rarely encountered, and therefore are ignored entirely for the purpose of this article. The basic premise being taken in this article (a basic premise that applies in the overwhelming majority of cases in any event) is that parties to an Adjudication are liable for their own costs irrespective of the outcome of the Adjudication.
