Adjudicator fees

An adjudicator will give a copy of the decision to both parties after payment of their fees has been paid. Both parties are equally responsible for paying the adjudicator’s fees and expenses unless the adjudicator decides otherwise.

The maximum fees including expenses an adjudicator can charge for deciding an adjudication application relating to a progress payment of no more than $25,000:

Maximum amount Reasonable fee including expenses
If progress payment is not more than $5,000 $620
If progress payment is more than $5,000 and up to $15,000 $930
If progress payment  is more than $15,000 and up to $20,000 $1860
If the progress payment is more than $20,000 and  up to  $25,000 $2070
Above $25,000 If no amount is agreed for fees and expenses between the adjudicator and the parties, the adjudicator is entitled to an amount that is reasonable having regard to the work done and expenses incurred by the adjudicator.
