Quantum Meruit in the High Court: Is the contract really irrelevant? 30 Places remaining

Level 10/ 99 Elizabeth Street
Sydney NSW 2000

Where a principle repudiates a building contract, the conventional view is that the builder may recover a quantum meruit: that is, the fair and reasonable value of the work performed. That right arises independently of the contract and the amount recovered may significantly exceed the price agreed between the parties. 

Courts have expressed disquiet about this approach, including because repudiation generally does not discharge accrued rights and obligations. 

A decision on this problematic topic is currently awaited from the High Court in Mann v Paterson Constructions Pty Ltd. 

In this CPD we will: 

  • briefly survey the development of the law prior to Mann v Paterson
  • analyse the arguments put before the Court and the Justices' reactions to them during oral submissions; and 
  • assuming judgement has not yet been handed down, explore the practical implications of the various potential outcomes.
